As someone who loves enjoying a leisurely dinner followed by two, three, four, five and oops, is that me under the table again, glasses of wine, I’m constantly looking for dining promotions to help alleviate the cost.
So, rejoice, scream Hallelujah through the streets that BYOB is here in Vancouver. BUT as the owner of the hashtag #LolYouHadMeAtFirstSip, do I really want to pay $35 corkage fee for a bottle of wine that I can’t finish. If you split the cost between one other person, it make sense.
But being even more frugal, I scoured the internet for BYOB specials and here is my list and I’ll be adding to it when I find more low corkage fees in restaurants.
