Re: Corkage Etiquette for Older Bottles?

There certainly are places which disallow this and there are also areas where driving with an open container is illegal. I'll assume the latter doesn't apply to you, but I'd recommend calling the establishment and confirming that you may bring in an already opened bottle.

And enjoy!
