pop champagne in the rain

This has been the scene in LA since Thursday night. No, this is not from September. Yes, it’s December. Yes, Christmas is less than one week away. I don’t mind the rain, but it’s interfering with running at this point. But who am I kidding? This is way better than the freezing cold temperatures I’ll face when I go to Chicago Monday.

I did brave the rain and drove to Pasadena for a book exchange and dessert at Pop Champagne. Pop Champagne is a restaurant, dessert and champagne bar. The decor was super cute and the food was good too!

Love a chandeliers! The menu had a great mix of appetizers, desserts (hello, jello shooters!) and drinks.

All I wanted after my drinks the afternoon before (and uh, the bottomless mimosas from earlier that afternoon) was a simple prosecco.

Simple and crisp, as always.

Emily’s drink was pretty noteworthy, she wanted to avoid sweetness so she got a Guinness and sparking wine. I am not a big fan of Guinness but this drink was pretty good. I would order this next time I go out!

Before Catie arrived Em and I ordered fries with truffle salt and Parmesan. Yum, yum, yum! I love that I’ve hooked all my friends on truffles. Such a bad influence.

After going back and forth for a while about what I wanted to order I settled on nutella crepes. I mean, how can you NOT order the nutella crepes?

Vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, nutella and crepes with sugary syrup. It was pretty delicious.

The book exchange was good too! I got Water for Elephants. Many of my friends have read it and loved it. It will be good plane reading. Tomorrow I take off for Chicago for a little over a week to celebrate Christmas! I am very exciting to head home for the holiday season but I’m worried about the cold. Now that I’m a California Girl I’m not sure how I’ll take to the cold but hey it should be super “holidayish” unlike the rain in LA.

  1. Yummy looking eats!

    You will do great! I thought the cold would kill me, but so far it has been very refreshing. I even fell in the snow today (eeks!) and somehow managed to collect myself and carry on. 🙂

    Happy holidays!
