We went to dinner at the Melting Pot and used a coupon that I got on restaurant.com. I paid like $2 for a $25 gift certificate to go towards our dinner! We had to use it on the "Big Night Out" meal that was a cheese fondue, salad, entree and chocolate fondue. They have a set menu for it but all except for the entrees are changable.
We had a neat, intimate L-shaped two-seater booth to enjoy our date night :)
We stuck with the set menu, except for the chocolate. We started with Boston Lager Cheddar Cheese Fondue:
Our next course was a Wisconsin Wedge Salad. Neither of us had eaten a wedge salad before so we thought we'd give it a try. It was pretty yummy:
For dinner we had the fondue feast, which was Angus Sirloin, Old Bay seasoned shrimp, buffalo chicken, Memphis Style Barbeque pork tenderloin, wild mushroom sacchetti along with broccoli, mushrooms and potatoes.

Along with our entrees we ordered a couple of beers, I got a Lonerider Sweet Josie & Trey got a Duck Rabbit Stout. Yum!
Luckily the whole process takes a while so even though we were getting full, our food settled enough to give us room for the best part: chocolate! We ordered "off the menu" and got a snickers dip it was chocolate, caramel and chunky peanut butter with a touch of Bailey's.
It was a great date night. It's so nice to go out and enjoy each other's company doing something out of the usual. And even nicer to not have to do dishes afterwards :)
