Wayne Thiebaud takes the cake everyday but especially today, the artist’s 90th birthday. Take a moment to savor the platter of crudités and dip he’s created for the cover of the November 22 issue of The New Yorker, visit the Crocker Art Museum’s Thiebaud exhibition (on view through November 28), or indulge in a dessert based on the artist’s signature confections. Here at UnBeige HQ, we’re just applying a thick coat of pastel frosting to everything we eat, but the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is feting Thiebaud with a day-long birthday celebration at its Rooftop Coffee Bar. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, Blue Bottle Coffee Co. is serving delectable Thiebaud cakes (choose between lemon cake and lemon curd topped with raspberry buttercream or chocolate cake with New Orleans ganache and vanilla buttercream) along with special artist-inspired hot dogs, ice cream cones, and candy. Cross your fingers for comically large swirly lollipops! We hear that there will be also be special party favors, a raffle for a signed Thiebaud poster, and the chance to sign a birthday card for the artist, who next month will be inducted into the California Hall of Fame.
