I tried this once. I had a nice bottle of Black Xantus and decided to bring it to a restaurant and have them just charge me a corkage fee. There was some resistance for sure but eventually they gave in and didn't even charge a fee. Curious if anyone has done this and where it has worked, where it hasn't? I want to bring one of my Parabolas to a nice place with the girl and enjoy one during her birthday dinner. Thanks.
