Flemings Prime Steakhouse - Washington vs. California Wine Dinner

Friday, April 12th is the Washington vs. California Wine Dinner at Flemings Prime Steakhouse in Tampa.
A spirited competition with amazing wines from the famed Washington and California regions, paired with an exceptional five course dinner menu created by Chef Partner, Ryan Mitchell with Special Guest: Michael Rugers, Certified Sommelier and Fine Wines Specialist

Five courses, 10 wines and what is sure to be one amazing night, I am looking forward to this event! After the last couple wine events I have brought Gabe to, he has informed me that he is starting to like the taste of wine. There is only room for one wino in our family!
