Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Known as the “unoffocial band of Pasadena’s Occasional Doo Dah Parade,” Snotty Scotty and the Hankies take pride in their slogan: Closing Pasadena’s finest bars since 1971. This Saturday night they’ll be playing their joyous, goofy blend of surf music, rock and garage-band party music at Altadena’s Rancho Bar, one of the funkier dives around [...]

Words & Art: Written in California

Words & Art: Written in California

From science and art we move smoothly to literature and art — the same night as the Caltech talk about science and art, a new reading series launches at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Called Written in California, the series kicks off with readings by three poets published by Red Hen Press, which recently [...]

Science Meets Art at Caltech

Science Meets Art at Caltech

It’s easy to take for granted the remarkable programming put on by Caltech, and not so easy to actually get over there and take advantage of it. But the school year is ending, and the place gets quiet in the summer, so now’s about your last chance for a few months to enjoy yet another [...]

Church of Wine?

Church of Wine?

We had to share this photo taken by Petrea Burchard of Pasadena Daily Photo, who joined us the other night at a party for our advertisers, writers and some of our favorite bloggers at Vertical Wine Bistro. It was fun to watch her quietly slip away from the chatter and poke around with her camera, [...]

Tasty Noodle House

Tasty Noodle House

What was just another good strip-mall noodle joint has become a food-lover’s destination in recent months, ever since Jonathan Gold discovered that it had a new chef who is quite serious about his cooking. It’s still a little strip-mall joint, but it’s now more attractive and comfortable than most, with booth seating and friendly service. [...]

Pre-party for A Noise Within

Pre-party for A Noise Within

The classical reperatory theatre company A Noise Within may not be moving from Glendale to Pasadena until the fall of 2011, but the buzz is already building. And it was really buzzing in South Pasadena last weekend at a garden party thrown by Kathy Baker and Steve Robman. No strangers to the performing arts themselves [...]

A British Shout-out for Pasadena

A British Shout-out for Pasadena

We locals know that Pasadena is a destination town even when there isn’t a parade or football game going on, but sometimes it seems that no one else is in on the secret, except for the unimaginative throngs waiting outside Buca di Beppo and the Cheesecake Factory. But the secret’s out in London, thanks to [...]

Four Café

Four Café

Is Eagle Rock hotter, foodwise, than Pasadena? That’s a good topic for debate, and a point in Eagle Rock’s favor is the new Four Café on Colorado, on the same block as the excellent Colorado Wine Company and the as-close-to-New-York-as-we-get-around-here Brownstone Pizza. Four is an ideal addition to the neighborhood mix, an informal, order-at-the-counter café [...]

Holy Floribunda, It’s Rose Time!

Holy Floribunda, It’s Rose Time!

In case you haven’t noticed, roses are erupting all over town more dramatically than the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. While they’re not disrupting air traffic, they’re certainly slowing some cars, like ours, which have been prone to screech to a stop in front of some of the more dazzling displays in the west San Gabriel Valley. And [...]

Style & Whimsy in the Sustainable Garden

Style & Whimsy in the Sustainable Garden

It may seem early to plan your September garden touring, but tickets to fall’s Pacific Horticulture symposium, Style & Whimsy in the Sustainable Garden, are already selling briskly and are likely to be gone within a couple of weeks. Organized by San Diego-based Pacific Horticulture, and co-sponsored by the L.A. County Arboretum, the APLD and [...]
