out at metropole for the kendra scott happy hour

Charcuterie is my favorite thing and my favorite word.

Some of my other favorite things include downtown dining, statement jewelry, and hanging out with the babes of Thread Cincinnati. Put that all together and you have a say-no-more scenario.

The group gathered at Metropole last week to talk all things Kendra Scott, as a new store is opening in the Liberty Center of Liberty Township. The brand is rapidly expanding and Cincinnati is lucky to be a soon-to-be home for the chic and pop-worthy jewelry. Do stay tuned because there are quite a few things in the works (grand opening, holiday shopping/give back event, personalized color bar fun…) and I look forward to sharing it all!

But now we need to chat snacks…

Metropol charcuterie spreadNow I’ve never really met a charcuterie spread that I did not like, and Metropole’s was no exception. We had the works. We’re talking the seven hour egg (boiled with coffee, tea & onion, served with pickled shallot & cracked pepper), hot olives (marinated olives seared in the fireplace), seared radishes (my personal favorite – just served with dill butter), artisan cheeses (cabot cheddar, Mimi’s smoked blue cheese), country pate (Marksbury pork shoulder, chicken liver, pistachio & warming spices), and finocchiona (pork salami cured with fennel & spices). Again, quite the treatment.

Metropol dipThen there was the warm whipped ricotta (lioni ricotta, truffle oil & horseradish). This was clearly the crowd pleaser and what I call the silencer. I was doing a lot of head-nodding while people were talking to me, but I was only concentrated on the dip. Delish.

Kendra Scott loves CincinnatiAll in all, the whole happy hour was an indulgent treat, between the snacking and the baubles and the talk of things to come. I’ll be showing off my Kendra Scott piece in an outfit post here soon, but if you love the brand, or have your eye on a piece, do let me know, I’ve got some discount codes to pass around! Comment or shoot me an email – katie@outandoutfit.com – if interested!

    I am from Texas originally and completely OBSESSED with Kendra Scott! I’m so excited to hear that she is opening up a store in the Cincy area! I’ve been going to Nordstrom in Kenwood mall for her jewelry, but I’ll definitely be checking out the new store. If you have any discount codes, please feel free to share them with me! Thanks :)
