BYOB Now OK in Orland Park

Customers can now bring their own wine or beer, as long as the restaurant has the proper liquor license.

Grab that bottle of wine before you head out the door to dinner—it's OK for you to bring it in with you, as long as the place has the proper license. 

Orland Park trustees Monday approved three new liquor license categories, including one allowing patrons to bring their own booze to restaurants that do not sell alcohol. 

The Village did not previously have policy in place addressing the option. 

"We just felt it was wise to address it," Mayor Dan McLaughlin said during the meeting, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. "By having the license, at least you know the establishments that offer it."

Restaurants will pay $250 per year for the license, and in return their customers can carry in alcohol not exceeding a 750 ml bottle of wine, or 36 ounces of beer. And they can charge patrons to re-cork the bottle.

That should bring down the tab when people go out to eat.
