New Year’s Wish

December 31, 2011

in bakeries/cafes/dessert places, holidays, party

Last night, we grabbed our bites and brews…


…headed to the (super foggy) Westside…


…sat at this traffic light for about 20 minutes waiting for Critical Mass


…and arrived just in time to nosh the New Year’s Eve (Eve) away!



I filled 3 little plates with nibbles – everything from mochi to chai gingerbread


…guac, hummus, salsa…


…veggies, salami, TJ’s appetizers, and popcorn


Special delivery!


My friend Kai is cousins with the owner/pastry chef at Proof – where I’ve been wanting to go since it opened last year



I was JUST drooling over her amazing creations on the Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets” that afternoon…


…and there I was eating them a few hours later – a New Year’s wish come true!


Kai’s (other) cousin – a blog reader – (<—HI!!!) hand-picked these with Abe and me in mind…


…you MUST TRY their vegan tea cake people!!!


And this Pomegranate Tart with Dark Chocolate Crust


Bites of heaven!


I’ll have to go back for this fig oat cake sometime…


…maybe if I wish hard enough, it’ll come true???

Hi Lynn! Blog reader cousin here. You, Emily and Kai should all come in for lunch before Kai leaves us for NYC. The pastries ARE good, but the sandwiches are heaven!

Ahh Delirium is my all-time favorite beer! Was the first alcohol I purchased when I turned 21;) Hope you have an amazing New Year!

I love Proof for their Coffee and Teas. I haven’t ever made it in early enough to try their pastries – they are almost always gone by noon! Now that I’m an early riser I’m making it a point to visit.
