Tue 02/19 -  I read about Flemings Prime Steakhouse "5 For $6 'Til 7" Happy Hour on the internet (Cheap Eats) and have been wanting to give them a try.  The only problem was, Happy Hour did not begin until 5:00 PM -- we usually go to Happy Hour around 3:30 or 4:00 PM.

This Tuesday afternoon we both had appointments with our Cardiologist at Desert Cardiology in Rancho Mirage.  We just happened to finish our appointments at about 4:45 PM -- perfect timing to go to Happy Hour at Flemings!

We sat at the bar at Flemings.

Our bar tender did not want to pose for a picture but he offered to take ours.

Explaining the "5 For $6 'Til 7" Happy Hour:  Flemings offers a choice of 5 premium cocktails, 5 distinctive wines by the glass and 5 generous appetizers. Each selection priced at just $6 each, and served nightly at the bar until 7 pm.

Ken choose Merlot wine and Sweet Chile Calamari.  Totally different from the Calamari at the Elephant Bar but most delicious!!  UUMMM

I had a Jim Beam Manhattan and the Tenderloin Carpaccio.  This was a surprise!!  The tenderloin was so thinly sliced that when I went to put it on the crispy bread, I discovered it was more like a spread than a slice of tenderloin.  It was fascinating and delicious!!

We were both very Happy with our choices, but I should point out that the "5 For $6 'Til 7" includes a sixth choice of their $14 Burger for $6.  It, too, looked delicious and was huge!  What a deal!!

I am glad we tried Flemings Happy Hour by ourselves because the bar is not designed for groups.  There was only one bar table for four.  Everyone else sat at the main bar or at additional bar-like seating on the other side of the area (see behind us in our picture above).

"5 For $6 'Til 7" Happy Hour at Flemings was delightful!!  Highly Recommend!
