Poets in Pasadena

Poets in Pasadena

Poetry fans take note: the 3rd annual Festival of California Poets is happening in our own town this year, at the Pasadena Central Library. Three of California’s most esteemed poets will read works by what the Poetry Society of America calls “canonical” poets. The roster includes Laurel Ann Bogen on Eloise Klein Healy, B.H.

Smitty’s Grill

Smitty’s Grill

We go to this handsome bar and grill now and then a year and each time are pleasantly surprised at how good it is. It’s not as fancy as siblings Parkway Grill or Arroyo Chophouse, but it’s a better value, and here’s why: with each dinner entree you get a side order, instead of having [...]

Gary V the Wine Guy at Vroman’s

Gary V the Wine Guy at Vroman’s

Expect a crowd at Vroman’s on Thursday night, when Gary Veynerchuk will appear to speak and sign his new book, Crush It. But if you’re an oenophile hoping to chat about Calatayud wines, this won’t be the event for you — although Veynerchuk is famous for the online videos of his hyperactive, regular-guy wine discussions, [...]

We posted about this swell promotion months ago, but it’s time for a reminder, because it’s still going on, and it’s a great deal for food and wine lovers. Sponsored by Visit Pasadena (basically the Pasadena Visitors Bureau), BYOWW is exactly what it says: You can bring your own wine to dinner, and corkage fees [...]

Wolfe Burgers

Wolfe Burgers

Good char-grilled burgers, perfect beer-battered onion rings, tasty breakfast burritos, a savory turkey-sausage sandwich with grilled onions, homemade guacamole and thick shakes keep this place packed every lunch hour with office workers and every evening with families. It has a nicer atmosphere than the other burger joints in town, and you can get a beer [...]

Racial Justice Breakfast

Racial Justice Breakfast

We’re looking forward to joining Ann Erdman, the city of Pasadena’s public information officer, at her table for the Women for Racial Justice breakfast on Monday, sponsored by the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley. It’s part of the Y’s Bridge Builder series, designed to strengthen community. We’ll also be gathering to honor Marge Wyatt, a former Pasadena [...]
