I got a text from Aaron asking if I wanted to go to The Melting Pot in Buffalo. I excitedly agreed until I realized there must be a catch. He needed me to help bring a loaner car back to Rochester. It was totally worth it for Melting Pot though. Right now they have a French inspired Big Night Out menu which includes Fondue à la France - a cheese fondue with baby Brie, Fontina, Gruyère and Raclette cheeses along with bacon, onions, white truffle cream and chives. BACON!
At first I was disapointed that they didn't have their strawberry basil lemonade anymore but now they have a raspberry sage lemonade - even better!
More on the real reason we were in Buffalo. Aaron's Smart car still isn't fixed - not thrilled with our insurance company & their body shop of choice right now (ever hear of totaling a car for less than $2K worth of damage?). Smart Car jumped in and said to get it to their garage to get fixed right and even gave us the use of a loaner car since we have had the rental for so long. I don't think I can say enough good things about how amazing the customer service is at Smart Car.
The loaner Smart Car is white and thanks to today's snow storm, looks like a snowball sitting in our driveway.
