I love to find an eatery
Which beckons with B.Y.O.B.
For when I’m going out to dine,
It’s nice to bring my favorite wine.

They may assess a corkage fee,
A wont with which I disagree,
But that won’t serve to undermine
The welcome in their grand design.

Yet if I fess up, truthfully,
B.Y.O.B. appeals to me
Because a bottle that is mine
Will likely cost $6.99!

    I see we have similar taste in wine. With taxes that bottle in Canada would be $15.99

    Now if we can go to the bar and eat our food, the picture is complete. For in these times we all agree the prices must be beat. :)
