Rose Court Dream Denied

Rose Court Dream Denied

We just had to share Lian Dolan’s column today on Chaos Chronicles, her national blog about life as a modern working mom. Once again, her dream of making the Rose Court has been denied, but she’s made her peace with it, and even shares some grooming tips picked up from examining the photo of this [...]

Death by Cat

Death by Cat

While you’re cruising Pasadena’s museums on Friday evening as part of ArtNight, make sure to stop by Gold Bug in Old Town for the opening of its most unusual new show, Death by Cat. The wonderfully quirky and exotic gift shop will be displaying the photographs of New York State photographer Bruce Wolf, which chronicle [...]

ArtNight Again

ArtNight Again

Now that ArtNight has had a few seasons here in Pasadena — it arrives once each spring and once each fall — it’s become one of the most popular happenings of the year. Everyone gets into the game: all the museums and arts organizations, a bunch of restaurants, the local bike-riders’ group called CICLE, and [...]

Arroyo Food Co-op Meeting

Arroyo Chop House

Arroyo Chop House

Captains-of-industry comfort food is served in a modern setting that would have put Henry Huntington at ease: white linens, etched glass, rich mahogany, Craftsman-influenced chairs and light fixtures, a discreet pianist. Prime steak is the specialty, and most of the time it is cooked as ordered; the New York strip is particularly good. Sides are [...]

BYOW Wednesdays

BYOW Wednesdays

This summer a coalition of Pasadena restaurants joined with the Visitors Bureau to do a promotion called Bring Your Own Wine Wednesdays, and it was such a hit that it’s still going on. The participating restaurants waive corkage fees on Wednesdays, and they promise not to look askance if you bring that $3.99 bargain you [...]

Connal’s

Connal’s

We love Connal’s burgers, even if they’re a bit salty. The buns are warmed on the griddle so they’re a little bit shined and fragrant with grease. And we love the old-fashioned tiny crushed ice for the fountain drinks, which are carbonated just right. All in all, this is a fine example of a hometown [...]
