If you want something more than pot luck but don’t want to pay a fortune for dinner out, try a BYOB restaurant. Check around, some restaurants will let you bring your own bottle of wine. Ask first, because there could be a “corkage fee” for bringing your own bottle. When you buy wine from a restaurant, your favorite bottle can be double the price of what you would pay retail. Check with your state, because some states will let you bring the partial bottle home, and others won’t. This is one way wine lovers can enjoy dinner out and still save some money.
