CorkageFeed, a website that maps restaurants that offer wine corkage for a fee, or sometimes — though rarely — for nothing, has a new thing going. It's called Corkpon, or a coupon for corkage.
Corkpons, as explained by CorkageFeed, are created by restaurateurs and bar owners as a way to attract customers. To find Corkpons and corkage information at restaurants near you, go to CorkageFeed.com and plug in your ZIP Code, the restaurant name or the city. If a restaurant is featuring a Corkpon, you’ll see a "Corkpon offer" button on the listing. Redeem the offer by printing it or showing it to your waiter on your smartphone.
FOR THE RECORD
If you're the type who checks websites only sporadically, join CorkageFeed's mailing list to get alerts of new promotions near you. That may be the least frustrating way to find out about Corkpons and other deals as the website grows.
