Re: New York City, aka Manhattan and the boroughs BYO

I dont understand. What does that have to do with giving misinformation to customers? Well you are by definition complaining about corkage. I personally could care less if corkage is $25 or $40. I could see your point if you were told $10 and it was $50 or something like that. It's not just the amo...

Re: US to impose 25% tariff on European wine, cheese, etc.

So I started to sell a portfolio that is 95% French wine, bad timing? [head-bang.gif]

Wine shops are commenting that due to their markup they might pass, but restaurants which seem to have a higher markup are having the opposite affect. Will see how this plays out over time.
