Our beautiful local Melting Pot here in Gator Town that was situated in a renovated church and which my husband and I frequented several times a year to have dessert fondue in the wine bar which was in the choir loft overlooking the main dining area has been closed for a while now. The nearest Melting Pot is nearly 50 miles away in Ocala. We haven't been able to justify the cost of gas to drive 100 miles round trip, not in our 1995 Astro van that gets maybe 12 mpg/hwy, on top of the cost of the meal.
However, I won a $25 Melting Pot gift card on Facebook a few weeks ago, which will more than make up the cost of gas, and today is our 22nd wedding anniversary, so tonight, The Melting Pot in Ocala it is.
I've been looking forward to this.
