Lucky Baldwin’s

On warm evenings people sit on the alley patio, sip British and Belgian beers and locally brewed Craftsman ales, and talk for hours. The jukebox is stuffed with ‘70s [...]

A Big Ol’ Slab of Treat

A Big Ol’ Slab of Treat

The world’s largest Rice Krispie Treat — a 10,460-pound creation that seemed spawned from Willy Wonka’s factory — came to be on Sunday on the field outside the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge. A new TLC show called Mega Bites, hosted by San Diego restaurateur and Top Chef season-three finalist Brian Malarkey, created the [...]

Parkway Grill

Parkway Grill

The Spago of Pasadena, Parkway Grill made a big splash when it first opened in 1985, bringing California pizzas and organic vegetables to then-stodgy Crown City. Today the concept is less fresh, and the kitchen execution isn’t as crisp as it once was, but we still love the casually elegant space—soaring wood rafters, exposed brick, [...]

Sing a Song in South Pas

Sing a Song in South Pas

Thank heaven for little girls… born to professional musicians! When their parents are inspired to create great children’s music, like Pat McIntyre is by his daughter Cecilia Jude, we all benefit! His inspiration led to the creation of the Saturday Morning Sing-a-long in South Pasadena. This joyful celebration of music and dance was started by Pat [...]

The Yard House

The Yard House

Okay, so it’s kinda corporate and chain-restauranty, but we love this huge pub/restaurant anyway. It has the most diverse crowd of any Pasadena bar—all ages, all ethnicities, all social strata—it has some 150 beers on tap (and a full bar), and it has much better food (Korean BBQ beef, ahi salad, excellent burgers, a yummy [...]
