Desserts + Beer Night on a hot afternoon.

Which comes first, dessert or beer? Good question! Why ask if it's a hot afternoon and you're hungry and thirsty?

A new dessert boutique has opened up on Colorado in Pasadena. The Owner and Pastry Chef launched this cute little store at the end of last year and I recently had the opportunity to stop in. I can't rave enough about it - but the red velvet cake is to LIVE FOR! (I know people say to die for, but that's rather morbid).

Join us for an afternoon of treats and beer! We will start at Bittersweet Treats at 6pm, enjoy some of the freshly made artisanal ice creams or pastries. Because Bittersweet closes at 7pm, we'll walk over to Lucky Baldwins Trappiste bar located directly across the street.

Sound good? See you there!

Pastry chef Danielle Keene is a former contestant on "Top Chef: Just Desserts" and was pastry chef at L.A. restaurants such as Little Door, BLT Steak and Wilshire. She has turned her online bakery into a Colorado Boulevard storefront, decorated with vintage baking pans, cake stands and Polaroids.

Keene is selling her upgraded versions of classic desserts: whoopie pies, cookies, brownies, blondies, peanut caramel pretzel bars, cookies, cupcakes including pudding- and mousse-filled, cinnamon rolls, chocolate tarts, upside-down cake, Boston cream pie, ice cream in flavors such as milk chocolate chai and honey lavender, and chocolate truffles and nutty brittles. LA Mill coffee is sold.

You simply won't find a better beer selection, in the united states.  Other places will have more taps, say yard house at over 100 but at 60 taps this place outperforms them all.  If you ask for a budwiser, miller, tecate, corona, or even a heiniken it is going to come as it should, in a bottle.  They reserve their taps for the best of the best, and since they are constantly rotating their taps you can literally go every day and not drink the same beer twice.  They are constantly keeping the beer unique with belgian, high alcohol, IPA and many more festivals that come with commemorative glasses.  The full English breakfast and the Bangers and eggs are a must have.  If you don't get beer, you are not going to understand what makes this place a destination restaurant. - Yelp

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
