Magnolia’s Sidewalk Patio for Brunch & Summer Cocktails

Magnolia’s Sidewalk Patio for Brunch & Summer Cocktails

It’s summer and it’s time, even more than usual, for enjoying the great outdoors. Not as in hiking the Sam Merrill Trail or Sunset Cliffs, but the great outdoors of the town of Pasadena. Magnolia House on South Lake has opened a sidewalk patio just in time for summer and lingering brunches—which, of course, could occur (if necessary) […]

Imagine five hours of soaking up the knowledge and experience of three respected authors, which also includes a writing workshop, a question and answer session, and the ever-loving prospect to buy more books. A perfect day, yes? Flintridge Bookstore welcomes international bestselling author Anne Perry, anthology editor and author of The Bone Weaver Victoria Zackheim, […]

You Are Here

You Are Here

We glance to the right while walking east on Colorado Boulevard, just before the corner at Hudson Avenue. “790 Colorado” the silver signage says, listing below some tax consultants and a number to call for executive suites. Yet it’s the irregular bobbing and weaving of two red balloons attached to a makeshift easel that catches our attention. […]

Book Alley

And as much as we love Vroman’s, Century Books, and Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse, we’re just as happy to have Book Alley within reach. Even though it’s only 24 years old, Book Alley […]

History Lit Returns

History Lit Returns

We wrote in May 2012: It’s an interesting idea: “original stage adaptations of literature that reflect history.” Unbound Productions in collaboration with the Pasadena Museum of History present History Lit, three short plays that the audiences experience as they are led through Fenyes Mansion, Curtin House, and the Estate’s gardens. You walk and you watch a […]

Artes Vocales

Artes Vocales

Artes Vocales comes to the beautiful and acoustically superior sanctuary at First United Methodist Church, performing Bach’s St. Matthew Passion on June 4. This story of Jesus’ suffering and death as told in the Gospel of St. Matthew had its premier in Leipzig on Good Friday in 1727. The Kapellmeister’s Magnum Opus in terms of length, […]
