Bring Your Own, or Get It Delivered!

What downtown restaurant, still waiting for a liquor license after a few months in business, not only allows customers to BYOB, but also tells those who show up empty-handed that they can call the local wine shop to place free delivery orders? (Credit cards accepted!) A bottle is then speeded right over to their table. It’s a bold move, given the SLA’s recent crackdown on establishments that illegally offer BYOB, but let’s face it, it’s also a pretty genius way to keep diners in their seats when they find out there’s not a drop in the house.
