No Corkage "rules"

hi all

my sister & i are taking our mom to dinner next sunday at a restaurant that has an ad in the local paper every week stating "sunday-no corkage"

now tell me, what are the "rules" ? ( to not piss anyone off! )

i started drinking malbec rose last summer and LOVE it, but its not like its some fancy rare bottle. i can pick up a bottle for $15 at my fave wine store in town.

does it have to be some rare wine?

what if we each have a cocktail first?

we WILL be chowing alot of food & WILL tip good.

on one hand im nervous to do it because i dont want to seem cheap, but on the other hand i feel they put that ad in the paper every week...the economy sucks right now...restaurants NEED customers, right?

what do you think? dont hold back if you think im totally wrong :)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
