The opening party of Ember Room was seriously amazing! The food was on point and the Bombay Sapphire drinks were seriously stellar. I’m not a big gin drinker at all, in fact I never drink it, but I decided since it was supposed to be paired with the Asian style bbq that I would give it a go — holy moly I’m glad I did. Ha. I brought my roommate Liz along with me for the ride (a true gin drinker) and she too was thoroughly impressed.

Liz.

The place was packed to the brim and people were stuffing themsekves with food every which way you turned. Haha. I love events like this because you get to see the sometimes prim and proper at their most vunerable — with a hot and chocolately pork belly in their mouths! Haha. Liz and I ate sooo much, it’s kinda insane and the drinks were sick. Haha. I loved the roasted pig that was in the oven-hole? Lol. I got one of the chefs to snap a picture.
