Dine like at rock star at Fleming's this Tuesday
Walnut Creek steakhouse pairs seafood and beef with wines from Mick Fleetwood and the Doobie Brothers.
I've been enjoying the fun dinners and events that Fleming's Prime Steakhouse in Walnut Creek has been offering over the past months. They have another cool themed dinner—celebrating rock stars' wines—at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10. Click on the link above for contact information, and check out the menu below:
Vintage Rock Wine Dinner
Groovy Goat Cheese & Oven Dried Tomato Crostini
Double Platinum Champagne Cocktail
created for Fleming’s by rock star mixologist Kim Haasarud
She's got a shaker and she's not afraid to use it. She's Kim Haasarud, a “liquid chef,” a professional mixologist by trade. Haasarud is the author of “101 Champagne Cocktails.”
Kim created a version of this cocktail for a Rolling Stone Magazine Oscar® bash. She’s redesigned it for Fleming’s using muddled strawberries, Citrus Vodka and Domaine Chandon Sparkling Chardonnay.

Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar, Riesling Central Coast, 2005
Drummer Mick Fleetwood formed the band Fleetwood Mac in 1967—11 Grammys and 35 years later he launched the award-winning Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar to much acclaim. In early April, he will release the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band CD “Blue Again USA Edition.” The ever busy Fleetwood kicks off an American tour with Fleetwood Mac beginning this March.
Mick Fleetwood partnered with Firestone Vineyard to craft this crisp, refreshing 2005 Riesling from Santa Barbara and Monterey counties. There, the cool marine air guides the Riesling grape to exquisite ripeness and balance with aromas and flavors of apricot, melon and honeysuckle. This wonderful Riesling displays ample acidity with a nice touch of minerality and barely a hint of sweetness.
Killer Filet Mignon
served with sautéed chard, tomato and whole grain festival fries
Doobie Red, North Coast Collectors Series, 2005
The multi-Grammy Award winning Doobie Brothers have released 15 albums, many of which went Gold, Platinum, Double Platinum and even Diamond. The Doobies are currently working on a new CD after a 10 year hiatus from the recording studio. Bruce Cohn, longtime Doobie manager and proprietor of B.R. Cohn Winery in Sonoma Valley, has named this Collectors Series after the artists. All proceeds of this wine go to support Veterans’ charities.
B.R. Cohn Winery produces this classic Bordeaux style meritage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot. The wine bursts with aromas and flavors of blackberry and plum, with notes of vanilla from French oak, all well integrated with exceptional depth and a long, smooth finish.
