Champagne Cork Catcher

I'll admit it. I used to be afraid of it.

When I was a bartender working a wedding, there was always champagne to open. Sometimes, you had to open THE champagne. The good bottle that the bride and groom drank out of. Not the Korbel the rest of the guests got.

That's when the fear would set in.

What if I was *that* guy? The one that opened the champagne bottle and sent the cork flying across the room and straight in to the eye of the bride, causing her to scream in pain and send elbows flying, one of which that would hit the groom. Then there'd they be, the bride and groom sporting two hideous black eyes for the rest of what was supposed to be their perfect day.

It could happen.

Well, the cork catcher stops all that. Just pop that baby open and the cork is stopped. Dead in its tracks.

Or use a towel.
