Tightwad Tuesday: The Melting Pot
Everyone has one of those restaurants that they save just for those really special occasions. Whether it’s a little too pricey or just too big of a production to enjoy on a regular basis, there’s always that one on reserve.
For me, that place has always been The Melting Pot. The food, service and ambiance have never failed to impress, making it one of my favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, I only make it there once or twice a year, quite possibly because I leave absolutely stuffed with my fill of fondue to last me a year!
However, I recently learned that I can officially take my favorite restaurant off reserve because, yes, even The Melting Pot has a great happy hour!
Stop by Monday through Friday from 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for their great “2 for $22” special. You and a friend can enjoy a pot of cheese fondue for two, plus two glasses of the featured wine or cocktail all for only $22. And believe me, one pot of fondue will be plenty to satisfy both of your post-work appetites!
In case you can’t make it to their happy hour, I’d suggest stopping by The Melting Pot just for dessert. With fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispie Treats, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies to dip into one of the many chocolate fondue options, you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth in a fun and unique way without putting too big of a dent in your wallet ($16 for the small dessert platter and $32 for the large).
Whether you’re planning a special night out, or just want a fun place to stop by with a friend after work, consider adding The Melting Post to your list. (Pictures courtesy of Flickr user _rockinfree)
