Fondue, a little disappointing

A bunch of us met for fondue at Fondue Fred's on Thursday. It was great to see Val again, who has changed so much. She is intriguing and was tracking my face a lodfdsft, which is mesmerizing to me, too. G and his friend Sarah ran around like wild things and Isaiah kept up with them pretty well.

I did make a mistake: I didn't wear my low-cut Cleavage Dress and the guy who is usually there and gives us lots of free stuff wasn't there. Dang it! and they took the tortellini off the menu, but did begrudgingly (and for an extra fee) make it for Liz. The gal who helped us was really not great. She never offered us any wine (which comes free) and insisted we get unlimited amounts of 6 fondues that we choose initially... which is not my understanding. (Mine is that for one price we get unlimited fondues off the top part of the menu, and for the higher price we get unlimited of whatever ones we want.) Plus, the Classic was awful--lumpy and tasted like unsalted glue. Not anything like last time.

I think our LA visitors were surprised at how expensive it was (and they charged us for the kids, who hardly ate anything at all!). Yuck.

Not sure we'll be going back there now, after 2 great visits in the past. Disappointing.

Yeah, I think we need to find a new place - it's getting too pricey.

i think she did offer us wine but i don't think anyone wanted it so no one said "YES!" maybe?

i thought the bread was a little stale and well, i think i'm over fred.

saw a lot of cool looking ethiopian places, though that might be a little more adventurous for some people.
