Open That Bottle Night

 12 Chicago Restaurants/Lounges Participate in the Annual Celebration
 
Saturday, February 27, 2010
 
Stop saving that bottle for a special occassion! Every year since 2000, on a very special Saturday night in February, friends, couples and groups get together to enjoy particular bottles of wine and champagne. The bottle selected to enjoy is traditionally one that you have been saving for a special event that – so far – has never quite 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.
 
A dozen Chicago restaurants and lounges invite you to bring in a bottle with no corkage fee. Don’t have a special bottle? Most participants will offer discounts on wines by the bottle so you may purchase your own, see below.

  1. A big part of Open That Bottle Night is also sharing your memories with others.

    John & Dottie used to ask readers to submit their stories to them via email at the Wall Street Journal. Being that they have departed the paper, a good way of sharing your story from OTBN XI would be to post it on their Facebook page.
