Fondue is a ubiquitous staple of Swiss culture, matched only by neutrality, multiuse pocketknives, and the world's most easy-to-draw cheese. Go for a dip with this Groupon.

The Melting Pot
Crowds gather each night at The Melting Pot’s more than 140 North American locations to dip breads and vegetables into melted cheese and share meats and seafood prepared in oil—and maybe even cast romantic spells over one another while they do so. Wielding double-pronged fondue forks, they suspend the tasty morsels of their choice in the ambrosial selections before them, which are cleverly heated by stovetops built into each table. The chefs prepare most platters in sizes best shared by two, making the venue ideal for date nights or reunions with twins who left 10 years ago to study the art of fondue.
Staffers at The Melting Pot use the restaurant to invest in their community as well. They host charity events and school fundraisers and even run a program to reward straight-A students with a free fondue dinner.
