When in Chicago Do as the Romans Do
To promote the Jan. 14th start of the new season of its series Rome, HBO will be buying wine for patrons of more than 100 restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Free bottles of Rome Cabernet Sauvignon will be given away from Jan. 10-13 to promote the series, which is set amidst the blood, lust and intrigue of the Roman Empire. Customers will find a card on their table that reads: "A taste of 'Rome' awaits you. Ask your server for details." Those that inquire will get a free bottle of the wine.
