Jessica opening her Gift Certificate to Dry Bar. We've been dying to check it out! We're making a girl date to go, so I'll post about it soon. Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere just posted about it on Friday.
Whitney, Jessica, and I (also seen here) celebrated Jess' birthday over the weekend with a fabulous dinner at Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica. This place opened last fall (by the same owner as Blue Plate on Montana) and is one of my new favorites. The food is outstanding, the nautical decor is adorable, and the service is incredible (not only was our server attentive, the owner came by about 4 times to see how we were doing and they gave us free dessert for Jess' birthday). It's a popular place and they don't take reservations, so there's usually about a 20 minute wait. We had a glass of wine around the corner at Bar Pintxo while we waited (also mentioned here). The night was filled with a lot of laughs, great conversation, and amazing food (make sure to get the mussels if you go). Happy Birthday, Jess!
