Feature Friday: Happy Hour at the Melting Pot!

FF Melting PotEvery Friday, I feature a fun and budget-friendly option in the Greater Boston area. The “Feature Friday” is typically mentioned on the Cheap Eats list, Free Things to Do in Boston, or Discount Attractions. However, there’s so much budget-friendly ideas on my pages, I thought it would be fun to feature something budget-friendly and different each week. Also, each Feature Friday is something I have personal experience with or took advantage of recently! Enjoy!

“This would make for a fun and inexpensive Valentine’s Day Date” my husband said a few months back while enjoying fondue at the Melting Pot’s Happy Hour.

The Melting Pot offers Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 5-7pm and features their bar menu at 50% off food items. The bar menu includes both fondue items and regular food items like sliders, flatbreads, and more.

Although our tab was more expensive than other happy hour specials since we did fondue and dinner like items, it was an unique dining experience that would be a great budget-friendly romantic option– perfect for Valentine’s Day!

But Kate (that’s me), I don’t want to eat at a bar on Valentine’s Day!

Yes, you would need to sit in the bar area to qualify for this deal, but there’s some comfy booths in the bar as well. Plus, there’s still time for a romantic walk in the Public Garden or Ice Skating at Frog Pond afterwards. Just sayin’
