what do you think?

I'd like to hear your thoughts out there...I'm all for it, bring a bottle, buy a bottle, it's a pretty simple system I grew accustom to while living in San Francisco. Hurray!

Wine bill clears Senate with help from Dewhurst

AUSTIN, Texas — A bill that would let Texans take their own wine into restaurants serving liquor has quietly cleared the Texas Senate after some help from Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and the Texas Restaurant Association.

The legislation passed unanimously Thursday using a fast-track process normally reserved for non-controversial bills. Dewhurst, a known wine connoisseur, had told the industry group he would likely take advantage of the law himself if it passed, according to a letter from the association.

A lawyer for the industry group has said Dewhurst drinks a particular vintage not carried by a a restaurant he frequents.
