Dustin and I decided to take a "get-a-way" downtown. It was the perfect escape as we checked into our all suites hotel while the snow started to fall and enjoyed a glass of wine in the lobby. The weekend was filled with laughter, sleep, the discovery channel (we don't have cable) and Ginos East Pizza ordered to our room.
We did manage to enjoy The Melting Pot a delicious fondue restaurant downtown Chicago. The indulgence of a four course meal inspired by France included: fondue a' la France (a melted cheese), the fondue feast (an assortment of filet mignon, peppercorn-crusted NY strip, chicken provencal, roasted-garlic shrimp, mapel leaf duck a l'orange, ratatouille & goat cheese ravioli and fresh vegetables) and an oreo chocolate fondue with a million things to dip!
