“Open That Bottle Night”

Five Restaurants Participate in Annual Uncork-It Celebration

Saturday, February 25

Stop saving that bottle for a special occasion! Since the year 2000, on the last Saturday night in February, friends, couples and groups get together to enjoy particular bottles of wine and champagne. The bottle selected is traditionally one that you have been saving for a special event that, so far, hasn’t happened.

“Open That Bottle Night” was created by Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher of the Wall Street Journal as a great way to feel entitled to uncork that cherished bottle. It doesn’t matter if the wine is expensive or reasonable, red, white or bubbly – what matters are the memories.

Five local restaurants are inviting guests to bring in their special bottle without being charged a corkage fee. If you don’t have a bottle on hand, two of the participating restaurants will offer nice discount on select bottles of wines from their house list.
