1. Single-bite hors d’oeuvres
To start off your progressive dinner with a flavorful bang, try the mac n’ egg rolls from MELT. We promise this carb-icious starter will live in your head rent-free. You’ll love the mac + cheese stuffed egg rolls paired with their sweet and spicy chili glaze sauce.
If you’re more of a potato carb enthusiast, then grab Munchie’s best-loaded fries in town. We’re serious, they’re worthy of that title.
