Showing up empty-handed to dinner

Okay, here's a Miss Manners-type question. Would you show up to a dinner empty-handed if you had asked the host/hostess what you could bring and s/he had said "just bring yourself?" Personally, I can't imagine showing up without a bottle of wine or flowers, unless perhaps, the host/ess is your best friend and it's a casual last minute "come on over for dinner" invite. What do people think?
