Corkage in Calgary
I've found scattered references around the Chowhound forums to Calgary restaurants that offer free corkage on selected days, but thought it would be useful to have a single forum for updated lists (more recent than this, from 2006: <http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/109440> ).

Calgary is a long ways from other cities like Montreal, on the BYOW concept.
i know Grand Pearl does, however apparently they just require the receipt used to buy the wine...
