BYO etiquette

newish | Jul 31, 2005 05:51 PM

Hello all- I am fairly new to Philly and have never been to a BYO (spent too much time tracking down cheesesteaks, pretzels, etc to actually experience, you know, real dining), and have some questions about how it works.

So you bring your own bottle of wine, or two. Do they need to be in a paper bag? Does it matter? Do most BYOs have corkage- basically, do I need to worry about anything other than bringing the bottle?

Thanks... this seems Philly-specific enough to post here, but if it belongs on not about food let me know and I can repost it.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
