Go to the Free Fondue Reservations Page to find your nearest location – the Albuquerque Melting Pot is in Old Town so that’s what should come up if you plug in any Albuquerque zip code. Click on View Reservation Information and then call the Melting Pot using the given code word to reserve your free fondue!  (The code word I’m seeing for ABQ is: Cheesemonger.)

    Went to free fondue last night. Just to let everyone know, it’s an appetizer that’s free, not a whole meal. So you get a free pot of cheese, some bread, vegetables and apples to dip into it. It’s great, it’s free, but it is just an appetizer, so either come somewhat full, or ready to spend some cash on dinner.
