It's National Chocolate Fondue Day!!!

The Melting Pot

It's National Chocolate Fondue Day, and I think we should celebrate by sharing chocolate fondue. They also have cheese fondue, salads, drinks, etc. This meetup will be required to RSVP ahead of time, so I can make reservations for our group. I will start with a minimum and expand if we get more on the waitlist. There is happy hour from 4-6:30pm, so let's meet at 6 (I will call to see if this is available). Please note the price per person might vary, but for chocolate fondue, it is $13. You will want to estimate $15-20 per person (or more, if you want more than one item). Gratuity of 18% will be applied to parties of 10 or more. Take a look at the menu here: https://www.meltingpot.com/portland-or/restaurant-menu.aspx Please bring $5 for three months membership (and for guests). Per the email notice that went out, we are starting over in 2019. Your contribution towards the Meetup is much appreciated.
