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:

Metropole at Home in December. 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. Menu available December 18 and 19. Online ordering coming soon!

Ring in the New Year (and say good-bye to 2020!) with Metropole at Home, Cocktail Edition. Celebrating from your couch this year? Get your sweatpants on and let us help you mix up some fun in your living room with Metropole craft cocktails kits. We’ll send you home with everything you need to make a boozy Metropole Cocktail at home, including a paired small bites menu by chef Vanessa. Once you’ve settled in, tune in to our virtual Cocktail Class (pre-recorded) with our bartender guru Moira for a quick lesson on how to shake up your cozy New Year’s Eve celebration. Online ordering coming soon!
