There is a Maccas close by isn't there? Last time I was dipping my McNuggets in champagne someone walked by and said that a Frenchman would kill me for that. So it is clearly a combination that is to die for.

I will be in MIA at 9:30a on the 28th. Never had Krug, but will on Monday if it is still available! Thanks for the heads up. If you see me there, come say hello!

Some of us plan to schlepp through the MIA Admirals Club later that week and would appreciate it if you and platbrownguy would exercise some restraint. :p

All this talk is fun, but I'm going to bet DFW doesn't have any.

I arrive the day before at 730pm into DFW .. maybe I can run over to D and order a bottle, some guacamole and chips and then go back down to collect my bags and head to the Grand Hyatt. Would this be feasible?

D club opens at 5:15 but sadly, cannot purchase alcohol until 7 AM in TX and even later on Sundays. Evening run is your best chance.

Eh, I mean DFW served Krug at its FFD pre-covid, so I might as well take the other side of that bet. Would be nice to know sooner than Friday... so I can route through MIA instead if need be!

I will look and try to take a pic if possible. Since I don't know exactly what I'm looking for any "pre-guidance" before Monday would be welcome.

Flip the bottle over and to the left of the bar code will be a prominent 6-digit "Krug ID" number, which you can then punch in here for more info: https://www.krug.com/what-is-krug-id

If I take a shot at an evening run, what would happen to my bags at baggage claim? Can I leave them there for a while and then come back to claim them? Will they still be there or will I have hunt them down ?

They'll probably be marshaled into the side baggage office pretty soon after the last bag drops. I've left bags down there while drinking in the AC before. Other than the increased risk of theft while it circles around the belt, nbd.

Is a 1/2 bottle of Champagne worth the mental anxiety you are going to endure, wondering who might grab your bags off the carousel?

Get your luggage, stroll over to the Grand Hyatt, take the escalator UP, and have cocktails + dinner in that fantastic bar/restaurant. You'll enjoy it.

Agree that the GH DFW restaurant is fabulous, and the cocktails there are good, but the wine list isn't so great (and the markup on what they do have on offer was pretty astounding when I was there a couple weeks ago).

In my experience, bags at Miami take forever to show up at the carousel, sometimes more than 90 minutes. You can also track bag scans on your phone!

I just get the faintest hint that you are not a devotee of Le McNuggets Champenoise. If that is the case I advise against dining at Restaurant JoŽl Robuchon where it is a specialty. Best value is a family pack with a magnum of the dipping sauce.
