When the economy tanked, a lot of people stopped going out to dinner and instead decided to stay home and eat in their kitchens. The restaurant industry began to suffer, but today, families have returned to the eat-out scene, especially to BYOBs, which tend to be cheaper. BYOBs are great – the food is still tasty, but no one gets hit with a large tab for beverages, and restaurants don’t have to keep a bartender on staff. The next time you decide to visit a local restaurant, consider choosing a hot spot that doesn’t serve booze and bring your own. To make things convenient, Gimmees has a wide range of products to help you tote your alcohol in style, but still keeping lots of money in your wallet. There’s the Ice Wine Cooler, the Neoprene Drawstring Bag Bottle Holder, the Pacific Trail Wine Tote, and many more. So whether you are red or white, Merlot or chardonnay, sweet or dry, we recommend you visit a BYOB for a delicious and well-deserved meal out but tote along your favorite bottle to toast along to.
