And when I say “everything,” I mean:
A chocolate-chocolate cupcake
A strawberry balsamic ice cream cookie sandwich
Roasted pepper goat cheese on crostini
Pecan, apple, and strawberry/blueberry pie in a jar (3 separate pies)
Bacon trail mix (yes, it was exactly what you’re thinking)
Honey butter sauce
and 2 açai-spirit based cocktails (“It’s like vodka, but it has antioxidants and fewer calories.”)
I also bought a delicious-smelling coconut milk bar of soap.
And by the way, since the event was held there and I hadn’t been since the renovation, Santa Monica Place mall is really nice now. On par with The Grove and Americana. They’re doing a free classic movie series that started last month and goes at least through May, if not the entire summer.
