Dine out, do good

The Melting Pot will donate $1 for every four-course "Classic Dinner for Two" sold in August to Classroom Central. The dinner is a new one, using Angus sirloin and sesame-crusted ahi tuna, plus cheese fondue, salad and chocolate fondue. It's $78 for two ($39 per person). If you donate three items ("items" include package of pencils, pens or erasers; pocket folders; etc.) for Classroom Central when you dine, you'll get a card for a complimentary small chocolate fondue to use on a future visit. Classroom Central provides free school supplies to children who need them, and serves some 150 area schools. Reservations: 704-334-4400 for the 901 S. Kings Drive restaurant; 704-548-2432 for the one at 230 E. W.T. Harris Blvd.
