Has anyone ate at the Melting Pot...not specifically FL, anywhere? I have a friend visiting soon and we are planning on going there. While I have wanted to visit, the price keeps me away. But it looks like so much fun! I was just wondering what people thought.

Hmmm, memory flashes are coming...didn't Johnie visit the Melting Pot recently?:unsure:

We love the Melting Pot. :yes: We get the court bouillon instead of hot oil as we aren't big into fried foods and it's delicious. :yes:

The cheese fondue they start you out with can easily fill you up, so be careful!

It's pricey but wicked yummy! :D

How's the environment and what's the dress code like? Obviously you can see I don't get out much.:unsure:

If you register on the website for the mailing list, they will email you a coupon for a free dessert fondue, and then they'll send another one on your birthday. :yes: The food is very good...but it is rather pricey.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Melting Pot!! Definately sign up for their email. They send out specials once a month too. They do a Ladies Night Out for about $25-30 a person and includes the whole shebang.

The dress is business casual. It can be very romantic or lots of fun for a group. Depends on how many people you have in your party.

I don't even care for chocolate and LOVE the chocolate fondue.

We haven't done Melting Pot in absolute ages. But when we did we thoroughly enjoyed it. This is one restaurant where I believe a group is better than just a couple.

I will definitely sign up for the email then. :) It will be just two of us, someone I haven't seen in 6 years.

You will have a great time there, Billie. We like the intimacy of a twosome there. It allows you to actually be able to converse in a normal tone of voice without having to shout. Also, given the slow paced nature of the meal, there is no rushed feeling.

I dress pretty LLBean, (minus the flannel :wink: ) you know, Oxford shirts and pleated trousers... never felt out of place there. Whatever you would have once worn to work will be fine.

I think the key is going to be "everything in moderation." Don't want to get full of cheese. :)

I do hope that we have a good time! Not having to yell will be good and who wants to be rushed.

Hmm, now to find or buy an outfit.

Your jeans, a tailored shirt and those killer heels will do it. :D

That would be true, however, I can not wear my new heels as it is too cold here in IL. But I do have my big, hot boots, that have over 4 inch heels. And yes, I would love to wear a pair of my new size 4 jeans (as they are sitting there and staring at me, ready to be worn, maybe by the end of Feb I will be able to). But my shirts are running big and sloppy right now, so will likely need something new. I want to look good you know.

Ooooh! Size FOUR!!! You are one incredible woman, Billie! :9: You surely do deserve a new outfit! :yes:

The boots sound nice. :yes: Do you ever do the "wear the boots, carry the shoes, change at the location" thing? Or has that gone by the wayside in snow country? (Mama used to do that all the time).

I definitely don't do that and those who I have seen do it are probably getting senior citizen discounts. ;) My boots are black leather and have zippers and buckles. Very rock and roll.

Oh yes, I can wear 6s right now, just waiting for the size 4 day. :D

Honey, you are my idol! :D Rock and Roll boots! Love the sounds of them!

Yeah, I rather thought the "carry and change" days were over (thank heaven)! :eek: Mama used to have a little shoe tote to carry her dress shoes in...

6s, eh? :yes: Perhaps I'll continue to strive! :D :D You've renewed my spirit for the game of weight loss in this period of hungry weeks. :sigh:
