Free Ice Cream Social With Metropolitan Market + Giveaway

free ice cream socials with Metropolitan Market

I recently joined a group of bloggers for the chance to preview Metropolitan Market’s free ice cream social.   We sipped boozy floats and sampled exotic flavors of local ice creams. And starting August 15 at all their stores, you can too!  Here’s a peek at what’s in store…

For a grown up twist on the traditional float, they swapped it with cider and ginger ice cream.  Oh yes, the straw made it perfect.

Have you ever had ice cream drizzled with olive oil and sea salt or balsamic vinegar?  Yeah,  me neither…definately a new twist!
