Well rejoice, for at least one night - tomorrow (Saturday, February 26) people across America will be celebrating Open That Bottle Night by gathering with family and friends to uncork that extraordinary bottle of wine that has been saved for special occasions. Some of city’s top restaurants are making it easy for Atlantans to enjoy their favorite bottle by waiving corkage fees in honor of this holiday.
Open That Bottle Night was created by Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher in the year 2000, and it has been celebrated every year since then. For more information and ideas for ways to celebrate, visit www.openthatbottlenight.com.
Spice Market will participate from tomorrow through Sunday, March 6. You don't even have to wait for a special occasion at Pacci. It has no corkage every night. Find other no corkage fee restaurants at www.gobyo.com. According to the site, other free options include Murphy's, Two Urban Licks, Miso Izakaya and Antico Pizza. I can't guarantee it's still the case, but when I visited the hotter than hot Local 3 a few weeks back, they also had no corkage fee.
Wine is meant to be enjoyed, so don't let that special bottle languish collecting dust in your basement (especially if you aren't storing it properly!) - go and enjoy tomorrow night!
