We’re Bringing the Festive to You

Here are the top holiday events happening at 21c Cincinnati this year

We understand the holidays will look a little different this year – your celebrations may be a little more intimate than usual, but the warm and cheerful things will still be the same. Whatever the occasion, this time of year should feel cozy and familiar. And you don’t  have to go far, to holiday well. There are plenty of festive traditions still happening here in Cincinnati. Here are some of the things the Yellow Penguins are doing to bring the holiday cheer to you this year:

Holiday Feasting

If you’ve visited Metropole recently, you know, there’s a new chef in town. Head Chef Vanessa Miller is hitting the ground running with seasonally inspired menus that make you feel warm and together, even when you’re not. But that’s not all, her and her team have been hard at work to find ways to bring the holiday cheer into our kitchen and your home. Here is what you should look forward to in December:

We think your December Needs More Salt. Put your cooking skills to the test and join Chef Vanessa in the kitchen (virtually) this December. Prepare a restaurant style meal at home from start-to-finish with 3 virtual cooking classes – 12/3, 12/10 and 12/17. Too tired to make a shopping list? We got you. Skip the trip to the grocery store and enjoy the best of the season at home with a box of ingredients sourced from all of Chef’s favorite local farmers and producers. BONUS… Take home all THREE and save 10% (applied when we call to confirm)! Host a virtual gathering with your friends and receive 10% off the next time you dine with us for the referral! As an ongoing effort to support our local foodbank, a portion of proceeds from each meal will go to Freestore Foodbank.

Metropole at Home: Christmas Dinner to-go. To Cincinnati locals, going to see A Christmas Carol at Aronoff or Ensemble Theater has been a long-standing family tradition. With some theaters closed this year, our team has come up with a way to keep this tradition alive and bring it to your home. Feast on a seasonally inspired menu by chef Vanessa while you gather around the crackling fire (well… sort of) and enjoy a special reading of A Christmas Carol. Learn more & order! 

Ring in the New Year (and say good-bye to 2020!) with Metropole at Home for NYE. You’ve got one more night to consume all the carbs before your New Year’s resolution starts and let’s be honest, after a year like 2020, you’ve earned it! So put on those sweat pants and get bougie with some Metropole take-out. Indulge in Burrata Toast and tasting Truffle delights. Feeling extra? Add some Caviar + bubbly; bubbly pairings available upon request. Celebrating from your couch this year? Let us help you mix up some fun in your living room with Metropole craft cocktails kits. You bring the booze and we’ll send you home with everything else you need to make a Metropole Cocktail at home, including a video tutorial with our bartender guru Moira for a quick lesson on how to shake up your cozy New Year’s Eve celebration. Learn more & order!
