Girls nights are important for everyone. Date nights with your significant other are wonderful, but there’s something to be said for a night out with good girlfriends who can objectively listen to all of your troubles, provide sound advice, and encourage you to let loose a bit. And let’s be honest, girls are always way more appreciative of cute outfits and accessories! But for me, sometimes these nights are the only thing keeping me sane. Between working remotely and my husband’s busy work and travel schedule, a girls night may be my only real interaction with humans in a given week. I’m always proactively looking for activities to do with my girls, from boutique fitness classes to happy hours to special events. A few weeks ago, Social House hosted the perfect opportunity for an evening out with friends: Test Kitchen: Solful Food. The event kicked off a series of pop up events with local chefs, featuring Aaron Black (chef at PB Catch) and Sarah Sipe (pastry chef at The Regional Kitchen & Public House). The Black and Sipe served up a casually elegant evening of soul/sol-inspired dishes, featuring wines paired by Sommelier Mariya Kovecheva with Pernod Ricard. From hamachi crudo to octopus poke, lamb and clam bolognese, roasted duck, and vanilla pavlova, each course was more delicious than the next. I can’t imagine a more pleasant way to spend a cozy summer evening with my favorite “creative coworkers,” and I’m looking forward to additional Test Kitchen events at the House.
For the event, I paired an embroidered white dress with a flirty tie detail with my go-to denim jacket and some funky multi-colored tassel earrings for a casual and fun look, perfect for a girls night out.
