The Melting Pot has locations all across the United States, definitely worth checking out. The price is a little on the steep side and maybe it's too much for a casual dinner, but for special occassions and times when you feel like doing something a little different, it's certainly worth going to and enjoying a different dining experience.
Oh yeah, last night was the first time I ever drank a martini. Lisa had one too. Hers tasted like apple and mine had a definite chocolate flavor to it, and then my taste buds felt like kerosene had been poured onto my tongue. We ended up switching drinks. And now I get to finally say that I've had a martini at least once in my life :-)
