Doo Dah Fun: Thx, PS!

Doo Dah Fun: Thx, PS!

Last week, HP post a piece about the Doo Dah Parade retrospective coming to the Pasadena Museum of History. Peggy Sue Davis of Altadena was there to enjoy the opening reception’s festivities and was good enough to share her spoils (photographs) of the evening. “What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been: 35 Years of the [...]

Raccoons Like ‘Em Some Honey

Raccoons Like ‘Em Some Honey

Say you’re about a century and a quarter old; how are you feeling right about now? Maybe a bit weary, worn around the edges, sagging, drooping, splitting apart. Wait, what? The particular 126-year-old in question is the Arboretum’s Queen Anne Cottage, and she’s been getting an extensive facelift. The decision was made, reports curator Mitchell [...]

Finding Balance Abstractly

Finding Balance Abstractly

Cells phone rings can differ from electronic “music” or your favorite song to beeps and trills. The “swoosh” of cars is never far away, or the blare of sirens or helicopters. Even pumping gas no longer allows for a solitary moment as screens mounted atop the gas pump flash images while assorted voices assail you [...]

Everson Royce

Everson Royce

A wine shop named after 2-year-old twin boys. Everson Royce is the baby of April Langford and Randy Clement (co-owners with George Cossette of Silverlake Wine), along with Joe Capella, a long-time wine collector, patron of SLW, and their “financial know-how guy” in this new venture in an old neighborhood (Old Pasadena). ER specializes in [...]

Tony: Top Gun

Tony: Top Gun

There was no hesitation, one witness said. A man climbed the 8- to 10-foot fence on the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday evening, and jumped. As most people know by now, that man was 68-year-old Tony Scott, famed and respected director of classic films and commercials. His “kinetic” and [...]

Lippman: When She Was Good

Lippman: When She Was Good

Serial versus stand-alones. Yes, stand-alone is a noun, though we did flip through the American Heritage Dictionary to double-check. We should have known better than to doubt our primary source: author Laura Lippman. In an interview with the Sacramento Bee, she says that her “stand-alones,” or rather her novels that are not a part of [...]

Music & Pop-Ups Alfresco

Music & Pop-Ups Alfresco

Hot August Night. No, not the Neil Diamond classic double-album recorded in 1972 at the Greek Theater. Rather, we use it, very loosely, in reference to these hot August days. One way to survive them is to enjoy an evening listening to live music—for free—at One Colorado and dining alfresco (for which you pay). This Saturday [...]

Beethoven at the Race Track

What a Long, Strange…

What a Long, Strange…

“What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been: 35 Years of the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade.” Yes, that’s quite a mouthful. But it also makes sense; our local Doo Dah Parade is a spectacle that assaults all of our senses. Our eyes widen as we see a table set for eight, complete with china, hot food, [...]
