“Experience the Passion and be Full of Desire”
This was the subject line of an email that was sent to a customer of The Melting Pot who had signed up to receive promotional emails from the restaurant.

It also happens to be the title of a webinar hosted by the AMA, which recipients would realize if they opened the email.
