Collin and I stayed in Whistler on New Year’s night. After ready for riding, we went to Creekside where Creekside Gondola takes you to the Whistler mountain. We decided to have breakfast before we started riding.

Dusty’s is at the bottom of Whistler mountain of Creekside. For breakfast, Dusty’s Backside is open.

We ordered from their breakfast sandwiches menu.

Two seasons ago, hash brown potatoes for the sandwiches menu was an option to add with a cost, but now they are included in the price. With that, the price is slightly up since then.

The sandwiches looked better than before. They tasted good.

On New Year’s night, Collin and I headed to Whistler to ski next day. We decided this stay at last minute, so when we went to some of the restaurants in Whistler Village, there were a lot of people waiting at the door, and the waiting time was more than one hour.

I suggested checking up 21 Steps Kitchen & Bar, because when I went there with my friend on a long weekend before, we were able to squeeze into the lounge upstairs, without waiting for long for the restaurant downstairs. As I thought, we were guided to the lounge called “The Attic” and waited for 15 min to be seated. 🙂

21 Steps is a tapas restaurant, located between Whistler Village Square and bridge to the Village North. From Whistler Village Square, the path turns left to the bridge. Just before the turn, you will see the stairs and menu board on your right.

We ordered from their dinner menu. There are small plate and big plate sections.

Hendrick’s Margarita Double

He seemed to like this very much so that he ended up ordering another one.

Long Island Ice Tea Double
(Vodka, Tequila, Gin, Rum, Triple Sec with fresh lemon and Coke)

When I saw this, I had to order. This recalled one of my good memory that I spent time with co-workers in Whistler. Sentimental? Haha.

His choice, Steamed Tiger Prawns from Small Plate menu

On the New Year’s Eve, there was no plan for me after work. Collin had to work until late night, so we made a plan to meet up. I picked him up, and we went to Gastown. We walked towards east and looked for a place to have some food and drink.

Luckily, The Flying Pig had some seat available at the bar counter. There were tons of people, wearing hat or dressing up, and it was quite noisy. TV was showing different places for New Year’s celebration.

We ordered some snack from their dinner menu, as he said he was starving.

A Glass of Prosecco

He ordered it for me, as it was New Year’s Eve to celebrate. 🙂

Double Beefeater

I couldn’t remember what Beefeater was, so I searched and knew it was Gin. He really likes Gin! Whenever I try, I don’t know the taste.

Bone Marrow Cheezy Bread

I already had dinner earlier, so I didn’t even try this. As he likes bone marrow and also cheese, this made him happy. 😀

Seared Chili-Rubbed Skirt Steak
(Matchstick Potatoes)

I tried this skirt steak. It was good. Yet, the steak portion was small, although there were lots of potatoes.

We ordered one more thing, but it didn’t come. When we asked the bill, it was included, so we told them about it and asked to remove. It was understandable, as the restaurant was filled by lots of people for the New Year’s count down, but it would be nice if we could have tried the dish.

Anyways, it was fun to count down with all strangers in the restaurant, while TV was counting down, and to watch people screaming, blowing horn, hugging, etc. when it turned to the New Year.

Here is a night view at Gastown on New Year’s Eve.
