a tasty South African cabernet rose I discovered
at the Austin Food & Wine Festival
Ever since I relocated to Texas from the Northeast, I've noticed there aren't too many restaurants that allow you to bring your own beverage (BYOB). I've always assumed that is because getting a liquor license in Texas is much cheaper and easier than nailing one down in, say, Manhattan. (I'm sticking to my guns on that theory.) And it's a known fact that restaurant-owners make bank on alcohol sales...
But fear not, my fellow winos! There are still a good handful of centrally-located BYOB spots, and I've compiled them into this round up for CultureMap Austin. Know of some other great spots? Definitely leave a comment letting me know where...I'll cheers to that!
