    Frederick News Post: "The Frederick County delegation of state lawmakers is seeking approval on a bill that would allow patrons to bring their own bottles of wine into restaurants. The bill would give restaurants the choice of whether to practice "corkage," where patrons bring a bottle of wine and the restaurant charges a fee to serve it. Currently, only restaurants without a liquor license are permitted to allow patrons to bring wine."
