Also going on this week...
The Capital Grille executive chef Keith Hanks has created a new bar menu of small plates available for lunch and dinner, including Miniature Tenderloin Sandwiches with Wild Mushrooms and Boursin Cheese (hey, they didn't use the S-word!), Shrimp tossed in a Ginger and Mustard Vinaigrette and Lollipop Lamb Chops (so much for being on Dave's good side ... ) with Herb Oil and Aged Balsamic.
At Sigel's Addison location, Jamie Adams, vice president of The Sorting Table, will lead drinkers 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through a tasting of Snowden Sauvignon Blanc 07, Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch 07 and Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 07.

Little Debbie herself (apparently, she's a real person) will judge a look-alike contest with prizes including scholarships and cases of snack foods (to insure the resemblance doesn't last long, one supposes).
