date in santa monica

I'd been craving a return to BP Oysterette for a while and Severo had Sunday off, so we did a little jaunt to Santa Monica to be gluttons and walk the Promenade.
Our first stop was Yummy cupcakes - I needed to pick up a vanilla/vanilla to sketch for my cupcake series. We ended up with four, which we took back to the car.

We then walked down to BP Oysterette.
4pm is a great time to go --
nicely situated between lunch and dinner and no wait.
We sat at the bar so we could watch the action in the kitchen.
Here's what we ordered:
caesar salad
steamed clams, fries seasoned with Old Bay
steamed clams, lobster macaroni + cheese
brown butter apple tart with cinnamon ice cream
After all of that, we were in dire need of a postprandial walk. So we did a little exploring of Santa Monica Place and then up the Promenade.
Altogether, a very fun afternoon.

What about the cupcakes? you ask -- see Cupcake Safari for details!
