Don’t I look red carpet ready?! 😉
I’ve had quite the busy evening– I actually hit not one, but two fun events. The first was the International T-Shirt Day Party and the second was a tweet-up at the Melting Pot downtown.
I love random national (and international) holidays, so I was totally IN for International T-Shirt Day. The tradition of T-Shirt Day began in 2008 on the first day of summer and ever since, people have gathered to celebrate the many facets and versatility of the t-shirt. Cool, right? I love a good t-shirt myself! 😉
The party was held at Alibi— the same location as the Healthworks Blogger Bash a few weeks ago. As part of the T-Shirt Day celebration, participants designed their own free t-shirt online a couple of weeks ago and were invited to pick it up in person at the International T-Shirt Day Party. I love free stuff, so, of course, I was game!
After picking up my t-shirt, I stuck around for a little while to model my t-shirt on the “Open Runway” and do some mingling.
Then, it was time to eat FONDUE!!!
I died and went to fondue heaven!! At the event, we enjoyed a variety of Melting Pot cheese and chocolate fondues, along with lots of goodies for dipping.
I grabbed a fork and got right down to business. I wasn’t shy! 😉
The cheese fondues included Traditional Swiss, Cheddar, Spinach-Artichoke, Wisconsin Trio, and Fiesta Cheese. I loved them all, but my favorites were the Cheddar and the Wisconsin Trio, which both had a nice, bold flavor.
The chocolate fondues were really something special. There were so many “holy yum” varieties– I had a tough time not trying them all a few different times! 😉
There was Cookies ‘N’ Cream, Bananas Foster, Pure Dark Chocolate, Flaming Turtle, and Original (peanut butter + chocolate). My absolute favorite combination of the evening was a mini Rice Crispy Treat dipped into the Original chocolate fondue. The fondue soaked into all of the tiny crevices… holy deliciousness!
The Flaming Turtle was pretty cool!
I also sampled some Apple Ice Wine, which is made locally in Harvard, MA. It was sweet and refreshing– perfect for a hot summer day like today!
I really enjoyed my first tweet-up at the Melting Pot. It’s really neat to meet your Twitter buddies in person.
On my walk home from the T, I was pleasantly surprised to bump into these two guys:
How adorable are they!? They put the biggest smile on my face when I saw them!
It’s a zillion degrees outside right now, so I’m staying hydrated with some lemon verbena geranium Herbal Water that the company sent me the sample. I’m on the fence about this flavor. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. It definitely tastes like it’s infused with herbs, but it also tastes like there is soap in my water. Maybe I’ll like some of the other flavors better?
I’m heading to bed soon because I have a RIDICULOUS day ahead of me tomorrow. I definitely need my rest.
Good night, blog friends!
