Volunteer for the Ride

Volunteer for the Ride

If you joined us last year to watch as Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and their cycling colleagues roar around the Rose Bowl, you know what a thrill it is to have them in town. They’re coming back in late May for the next Amgen Tour of California, aka the Tour de Sunshine. Many of the [...]

Book of the Month

Book of the Month

This month’s children’s book comes recommended by Maureen Palacios, owner of Once Upon a Time Bookstore in Montrose: Young Zeus, by G. Brian Karas (Scholastic Press, Feb. 2010). Greek myths are all the rage these days, what with the success of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians adventure series (and new movie) for kids [...]

Sip to Support Sierra Madre Library

Sip to Support Sierra Madre Library

Think Moby Dick and a great white wine. A glass of Chianti and The Godfather. Cannery Row and a Viognier from Monterey.  See how wonderfully wine and great library books mix? Sierra Madre’s library supporters agree and bring the two together this Friday at the annual  fundraiser. For 40 years, the Friends of the Library have been gathering [...]

Dish

Dish

Dish combines a charming farmhouse décor with an inexpensive menu of American comfort food, and it’s a good spot for an all-American breakfast: cornmeal johnnycakes, applewood-smoked bacon, kids’ pancakes and the usual egg dishes. Lunch brings simple sandwiches, soups and salads. At dinner, we like the brisket and the slow-roasted ham with great mac & [...]

Robin’s Wood-Fire BBQ

Robin’s Wood-Fire BBQ

Blues on the stereo, wood smoke in the air, ribs on the table . . . this is living. Barbecue zealots (and they are many) argue ceaselessly on web sites like Chowhound.com about which places are best in Southern California; Robin’s usually rates highly, and it deserves to. The meats are smoked over mesquite and [...]

Il Fornaio

Il Fornaio

This California-based chain is one of Old Town’s better restaurants. In a bright, modern, noisy setting (complete with a good bar), white-aproned waiters ferry satisfying wines by the glass, savory pastas (the seafood linguine and meat lasagnas are particularly good), thin-crusted pizzas and tasty salads; we avoid the chicken dishes, which tend to be dry. [...]

Love Fest for Haiti

Love Fest for Haiti

The joint will be jumping all day and night on Saturday at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters, which is hosting a fundraiser for Little By Little, a medical nonprofit working in Haiti. A few of L.A.’s hottest food trucks will make an appearance, including the Kogi Truck, Barbie’s Q, Get Shaved and the Flying Pig, and [...]

Song

Song

This architecturally dramatic space—a small glass-walled dining room and larger open-air patio set off by fifteen-foot-tall laser-cut steel panels modeled on Thai fabrics—is perfectly suited to the wonderful Thai street food, which is, after all, intended to be eaten outdoors. You’ll find dishes you won’t find elsewhere in town, like the crispy, addictive corn cakes, [...]
