Fleming's wine-tasting series

Fleming'sFleming's is having a series of wine tastings on Thursday nights through September.

The idea was to allow guests, over the course of five evenings, to get a taste of the 100 wines that will be available by the glass at the restaurant for the next year.

But I'm afraid I'm getting to this "Fleming's 100" news a little late; two of the tastings have already taken place. Sorry. Your liver will thank me, though. And there are three more tastings -- that's 60 wines -- to go.

Each tasting is $25 per person. Guests receive a $25 dining credit good for the main dining room that evening.

Here's a list of wines to be sampled this Thursday:

• HEIDSIECK, Brut Champagne Blue Top France NV
