It's never too early to start celebrating everyone's favorite reason to get completely plowed -- whether Irish blood runs in your veins or not. At least, that's the philosophy at Fleming's Steakhouse, 191 Inverness Drive West in Englewood, which is hosting a Go Green Wine Dinner at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
Passed hors d'ouevre: Irish cheeses featuring Sage Derby & Cahill's Farm Cheddar and fresh fruit with a Loosen Bros. Riesling Mosel from 2008.
Appetizer: Citrus-cured Celtic Salmon on potato boxty with chive sour cream with a Parducci sustainable white from 2008.
Entree: Irish-style Filet Mignon served on a deconstructed sauce with bacon, carrots, new potatoes and thyme, served with a Chelsea Goldschmidt Dry Creek Valley Merlot from 2006.
Dessert: Guinness Stout chocolate cake with chantilly cream, coffee and tea.
Dinner costs $55; to make a reservation, call 303-768-0827 or visit www.flemingssteakhouse.com.
