Some of the best birthday parties I’ve been to have been hosted at The Raymond and 1886 Bar in Pasadena. There’s something so peaceful, yet incredibly lively about the gorgeous patio, which has a lovely fireplace. So when foodie friend Tanaya from Tanaya’s Table announced her birthday party/blog anniversary party, I enthusiastically RSVP’d yes! I love any excuse to return to this place.
While with celebrating the indefatigable Tanaya, the party got to try some of delicious food and desserts, some custom-made cocktails, and some treats from the birthday girl herself. The bartenders here are some of the best around, making some of the most creative drinks and this night was no exception. We got served a literal firework cocktail and it was the greatest.
Many thanks to The Raymond, 1886 Bar, and Tanaya for a super fun night! Check out the food porn below.
