Want to bring your own bottle of wine to a restaurant? Not sure if they allow it or what they charge for this? There is an app that can be downloaded called Corkage Fee. It is located at http://www.corkagefee.com. It relies on its users to upload the corkage fees, so it is not very complete at this time. If you have a chance, please update the corkage fees that you have been charged.
It’s too bad that menus in each restaurant aren’t required to include their corkage fee. It seems that if they are going to charge a price for something, it should be listed somewhere.
