Wine Thursdays at Flemings

Earlier this Spring, Xandria and I had the good luck to get invited to a preview of Fleming's menu.   I didn't even know that the "P.F." in P.F. Changs was Paul Fleming, but it was great to hear the story, taste the wine pairings and enjoy all that Fleming's has to offer.  Since then, I have been back several times and always enjoyed it.  Having just come off a steak-stravaganza where we ate at Morton's and Ruths Chris, I ended up deciding that of the Big Three Steak houses, Fleming's had the tastiest meat. I also just discovered a cool thing they offer: "Opening Night Wines". Every Thursday in September, from 5:30 - 7:00, they will offer 20 of their 100 wine list along with light hors d'oeuvres for a great QPR of $25.  Yum! Prepayment is required, space is limited and you can book by phone and find out more here

The hardest thing is going to be figuring out how to get to as many Opening Nights as possible!
