Tonight: McCormick & Shmick's presents a wine dinner

Tired of all this beer-drinking yet? Even if your answer is "no," it might not hurt to mix it up for a night and try a wine dinner instead....Right?

Tonight, McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant, 8100 East Union Avenue, is offering the Wild Horse Vineyards Wine Dinner, five courses paired with Wild Horse wines. Here's the menu:

Course one: California Sparkling Brut with an amuse bouche.

Course two: Central Coast Viognier with coquilles St. Jacques (pan-seared scallops with ossetra and sevruga).

Course three: Central Coast Chardonnay with crab and lobster bisque, served with blue crab and a port-wine reduction.

Course four: Central Coast Pinot Noir with Colorado striped bass, served a la meuniere with sauteed spinach.

Course five: Paso Robles Merlot with a chocolate bag -- white chocolate mousse and raspberry coulis.

The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. and costs $60; find all the details at or call 720-200-9339.
