Fleming's cooks ups special for 'Sex and the City'

Trendy party dresses, tiny purses and stilettos could be the uniform of the day when Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Winebar in Tampa tries to get Sex and the City fans in a proper Manhattan girl mood for the highly hyped film that opens tonight. Waiters will dish out hors d'oeuvres and bartenders pour $8.95 SKYY vodka martini recipes culled from the show at the no-reservations-required event that starts at 5:30 p.m. Saks Fifth Avenue makeup artists will work the room offering free lip and eye touch-ups while clerks show off the latest shoes from Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo and Giuseppe Zanotti, plus $1,000 to $3,000 Chanel, Gucci and Prada handbags. Prize drawings include tickets to see the movie and a "Day of Luxury" package that comes with a $250 Saks gift card and makeovers, lunch and goodie bags for three friends. "It's what Saks is all about," said Kimberly Bouldin, the WestShore Plaza store's event coordinator, "Fashion, designers and New York."
