I’m wondering if fellow rioters might be able to help me with a query – I have tried searching through the archives but can’t find related discussions.
We went out for dinner tonight to a restaurant that is licensed but also allows BYO. We ordered a bottle of wine but didn’t finish it – as there was a good half bottle left, we asked if we could have the cap so that we could take it home but were told that the liquor licence prohibited it.
I have been through the liquor act and subordinate legislation but cannot see anything that clearly substantiates this (although I will admit to not being a lawyer!). As I didn’t have time to locate and read a copy of their licence, I am not sure if it might be a special condition.
My parents have never encountered this sort of problem in Queensland and it just seemed a little too coincidental that this wine could also be ordered by the glass.
