For sure this is going to be one the highlights of 2019. The VIP foodie event for the grand opening of Atomic Creamery at Fashion Island in New Port Beach. One of the most impressive and fun events I’ve attended. Hosted by Norma aka @Eatwithnorma it was truly a wonderful event attended by some of my favorite SoCal foodies. Atomic Creamery is a veteran owned business and Orange County’s newest purveyor of fresh made-to-order, all-natural liquid nitrogen ice cream. They don’t just serve Ice Cream. They also serve shakes, Sundays and do an amazing chicken and waffle!! If you would like to try Atomic Creamery here is a promo code: ERNSLAB.

Check out this short behind the scenes video of the foodie event that features some of the amazing desserts!
This really was a red carpet event! With a big A List of foodies I was very honored to have been invited. There were so many little details that really made this a special event. What’s great about this location is that valet parking for Fashion Island is right in front of the shop! Walking in we were greeted by the host Norma and given a very nice “Welcome Erns” by the staff. I thought that was a nice touch.
Another special touch were the personalized table cards. Very nice to have at foodie meetups so you don’t lose your seat. There’s a lot of getting out of your seat when it’s time to take pics and it’s also great because you can see who your seated with and get their handles right away. I appropriate the little things like this so much that I always keep them no matter how big or small.
Here is some of the Ice Cream being made. I don’t know how the whole process works but It really was fun to watch from behind the counter! And I know the end result is something that was super yummy. They offered regular Ice Cream and also offered non-dairy options. I think coming to a place like this is really nice because you get to watch your ice cream being made and it’s such a cool process.
I’m just going to run real quick through all the dessert pics and then you’ll find the behind the scenes pics of the foodies at work. There’s nothing like being around good food and people who work so hard to review and share what they love. Each dessert was so picturesque and very delicious. They have an impressive line up of desserts.
I didn’t get too many food only pics. I was really trying to capture the event and those who attended. I think this is something people don’t get to see very often. It’s always great to give some attention to those who help these businesses get the work out. Below is Hop (@x3hoppie) and Kevin. You can check out her really great blog where she gives really honest reviews good and bad! Her blog is one that have been following for some time now. Do yourself a favor while your there and read the blog post written by Keven!! To check out her blog CLICK HERE
Attending events you also get to meet other influences and foodies. Sometimes you get a little starstruck when you meet an influence you’ve been following for a while. I get really shy around some because their like celebrities to me. I follow them, study their posts and content and it inspires me to see them at work. Below is @cookingwithk8 holding food so people could take pics.
Another great perk of the night is that my daughter was invited to come along with me. A big lover of ice cream she was very excited to come along and did great modeling the food. She’s featured in a few of my videos which she doesn’t mind to much. She doesn’t have much patience for having her picture taken but she really was into it this day.
