Dining events: Capital Grille's Generous Pour returns, Smoothie King opens in Mount Prospect
Tired of the same old wines? The Capital Grille is once again offering The Generous Pour, where diners can try as many wines as they'd like from seven Jackson Family Wines for only $28 with dinner. Now through Sept. 6, for those who opt for the program, servers will help diners pair wines with specific dishes. Or, for those who'd rather try sips at home, there's also The Generous Pour @Home option, which includes takeout dinner, bottles of Jackson Family Wines, a complimentary wine opener and access to tasting videos.
