Hello Lynn, I'm flying out to Calgary tomorrow (thursday night), I will be there for this upcoming weekend. My sister lives in the SouthWest area, and has a car, and is on vacation for the next week. Sunday brunch is a nice idea, I hadn't thought of it. Which resto offers a good brunch for a decent price? thank you for the well wishes!
Hello John, no, Montreal BYOW Restos do not charge $ for corkage. In Montreal, you can go into a resto with 10 ppl with10 bottles of wine, and only pay for the meal. The average price for a main dish at a BYOW resto is approx $10-$15. 1 Appetizer + main meal + sharing a dessert will cost less than $30 per person, and you have your own wine! The first time I heard "corking charge" term was in Toronto, I thought the concept was ridiculous! :)
Hi John, thank you for providing so many suggestions! I live in Montreal where around almost every corner there is a BYOW resto ;) I heard that in other parts of the country, resto's can charge a "corkage fee" hope thats not the case in Calgary. Thanks again,
