Whisky & Poetry Salon: Three Years!

Whisky & Poetry Salon: Three Years!

How time flies. We’re struggling to acknowledge that it’s been three years (we blinked!) since we walked up six flights of stairs—though with a 3rd landing whisky pick-me-up—to a building-wide penthouse that was surprisingly open and intimate and where in a small corner of the space, mix-matched chairs and a sofa circled around a table […]

You’re the Best: The Satellite Sisters Celebrate Friendship

You’re the Best: The Satellite Sisters Celebrate Friendship

Pasadena’s Lian Dolan has won us with her humor and observations, first with Helen of Pasadena, followed by Elizabeth the First Wife, and with all of her public service appearances, such as the moderator at Pasadena Magazine’s Women in Business luncheon and most recently as emcee for the Cancer Support Community gala fundraiser.

Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Joe Normal and Gigi Hutchinson never thought they’d be working together. In the same place; within the same space. Primarily because Joe is a musician and Gigi is a hairdresser.

The Diaries of Adam & Eve

We seem to be on an apple bent in Talk of Our Towns this week, as Saturday is the time for the Hard Core Cider Tour at Brookside Park, and apples always bring to mind the story about the first of our kind, Adam and Eve.… SATURDAY.–I am almost a whole day old, now. I […]

San Gabriel Mission

San Gabriel Mission

We were corralled to do an early morning drop-off in Rosemead, and as we were in no hurry, we decided to leisurely wind our way home. Suddenly, we turned right and there was the San Gabriel Mission in an early morning glow. We didn’t have time to take a proper tour, but here are some […]

Make Your Own Bitters

Make Your Own Bitters

Woodsy and spicy or anise-scented? Angostura or Peychaud’s? Along with orange, Thomas Parsons calls this “the holy trinity” of bitters.¹ Many people know bitters as a classic ingredient for cocktails. We did not know that originally bitters were medicinal tonics. Supposedly in 1838, Antoine Amedie Peychaud, a pharmacist and Creole immigrant from Haiti, “began dispensing […]
