When a restaurant review states "BYOB," do they really mean that? I mean is one permitted to bring booze? If the cops happen to come by, will there be a problem? I grew up in Vancouver in the 60's & 70's when many restaurants did not have a liquor license, and there was never a problem - in those days - bringing one's own so long as one was discreet about it (words were never exchanged - just a twisting motion with the hand in the direction of the waiter resulted in a corkscrew and glasses being brought to the table). I think by the late 60's the police would no longer confiscate your booze but then I don't think they were doing those kinds of "raids" anymore anyway. I just don't want to be on the wrong side of the law when I am on holiday! Thanks for any insight!
