Alex's Bachelorette Party

Ben and Alex's wedding is just around the corner! They decided to have their respective bachelor/bachelorette parties on the same weekend, but we each chose one of the twin cities (we were in Minneapolis, while the boys were in St. Paul). It was a blast! We started with dinner at the Melting Pot, which I had not been to before. It's a fondue restaurant, and it was delicious! We started with bread and two kinds of cheese, and then they brought out meat that we cooked in boiling broth with 5 different sauces to choose from. There was shrimp, chicken, and beef, and I can only remember the gorgonzola sauce; my favorite! We did a small gift exchange, which included giving Alex underwear and she had to guess who each pair was from, and other small gifts. I got Alex Porn for Women, and if you've never read it, you should! Even Tim enjoyed it when I showed it to him ;o)

Cheese fondue. There was cheddar with beer (yum!) and swiss.

The meat that we got to cook. We ate all of it!

Our meat cooking away. It was hard to wait, it smelled so good!

Katie and I were designated dessert sharers. It was an amazing end to the fondue experience!

After dinner, we went for drinks on the rooftop of a bar called Solera, and then we spent most of our night dancing at Bootleggers, and then a little more fun (or too much for some) at the W (part of a hotel I believe). It was a blast! I was an old lady and went home a bit early, but considering I had a 4.5 hour drive home the next day by myself, I wasn't too upset to not be hungover the next day. It was a fun mini-road trip!

We passed a pedal cart! It looked like fun!

Alex getting her groove on ;o)

Looking forward to the wedding in August!
