Patio of the Day

Pleased to Meat You: Fleming's Steakhouse

It's a long drive down I-25 to Inverness -- but suburb-dwellers deserve good patios, too. In fact, they may need them more, because their front porches don't afford nearly the see-and-be-scene opportunity of your average Wash Park or Highland bungalow.

And there's plenty to see from the out-front patio at Fleming's: limos pulling up and unloading thier cargo (two couples with a a gaggle of dressed up little girls last night), BMWs screeching to a halt as their drivers totter out on stilettos and hand keys to the valets; golfers parking their own SUVs and strolling in, still dressed for the course.

And when there are no people to watch, you can get down to the meat of the matter -- since Fleming's will serve anything from the menu on the patio. There's no happy hour, but if you can afford a house out here, you can afford to pay full fare.
