bucket-list item #72.
eat at hy’s steakhouse.
xmas eve = my christmas. it has been a tradition since i’ve been little to go to mass on xmas eve, have a huge xmas eve dinner afterwards (noche buena), and then stay up until midnight to open presents and wish your family around you a merry christmas. i’m so lucky that i got to enjoy christmas this year in whistler with my family, both blood-related and chosen. my best friend kelly and her parents (who are like my parents here in vancouver) were able to join us at hy’s for this feast of (a perfected medium-rare) steak, seafood, sauteed mushrooms, creamed spinach, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, cauliflower gratin, and caesar salad that was made right at the table by a chef (it was honestly the best caesar salad i’ve probably had in my life). paired with lovely bottles of red wine and a lot of laughter, it was a great night overall… that left us all in massive food comas. merry christmas!
