Let’s Go Vintage: High & Low

Something’s up on Green Street. High Low Vintage has just opened with “an eye towards Mid-Century Modern, Industrial Age, and Post Modern clothes, antiques, and collectibles.” They carry movie posters from the 1930′s through the 1950′s, and also have art and furniture from the 18th & 19th centuries. Proprietor Carolyn Gray says, “Yes, we’re eclectic!” [...]

A Greene & Greene Walkabout

A Greene & Greene Walkabout

In case you didn’t get a chance to go on the Arroyo’s Edge: Greene and Greene Interiors Tour last Saturday, we went for you. Six private homes and gardens were open to viewing (though no interior photography was allowed) in historic Park Place. On a beautiful Saturday, people strolled along Arroyo Terrace, Grand Avenue, and [...]

Where Bungalows Are Heaven

Where Bungalows Are Heaven

Pasadena’s first Landmark District (and now listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places) is little, adorable, magical Bungalow Heaven. Eight Arts & Crafts-style homes built between 1905-1925 will be open to the public this Saturday, April 29th. It’s a self-guided tour where docents will be on hand to offer commentary of these simple [...]

It’s Doo Dah Time!

It’s Doo Dah Time!

Everyone, rummage through those closets, dig through those old trunks in the attic, and get working on your outfit because it’s Doo Dah Time! The parade will begin at 11 a.m. and be on Colorado Blvd. between Altadena and San Gabriel Boulevards. And, as always, this Pasadena tradition is free of charge. The Mother Truckin’ [...]

Barleywines & Imperial Stouts: Amp It Up

Barleywines & Imperial Stouts: Amp It Up

A “normal” beer? Ah, go on. It’s only got a measly li’l 4-5% alcohol content. If you want to drink with the big boys and girls, mosey on over to Lucky Baldwins Pub sometime this week and partake in their “High Alcohol Festival.” Manager Penny Wilhelm is talking hoppy, sweet, and strong Barleywines, Belgians, and [...]

Hail the Pet Beauties

Hail the Pet Beauties

Saturday saw a march of pets that were adorable, handsome—and dressed in tutus. One Colorado held a pet day in its courtyard and welcomed the Fun & Furry-licious, the Dressed to the Hilt, and Tricksters. The “celebrant of kitsch pop culture” Charles Phoenix—in is his eye-popping patterned pants and light blue (not suede) shoes—MC’ed the [...]

Housing & Homelessness

Not unlike the rest of the country, Pasadena comes up against the issues of affordable housing and homelessness. This Wednesday, April 18, an expert panel will discuss and examine “the issues and controversies surrounding affordable housing and how it relates to homelessness.” Yudie Fishman, co-chair of the Social Action Committee of Pasadena Jewish Temple & [...]

Showcase House in La Cañada

Showcase House in La Cañada

And what a show it is. Holy moly (yes, this will be the tone of this post, can’t help it, fresh from the tour, brain still buzzing). If you’re intrigued, amused, or even disdainful of how the 1% live, get your ticket and go. This tour is fascinating, inspirational, amusing and just dreamy. We’d go [...]

Come Play Me, I’m Yours

Come Play Me, I’m Yours

A few weeks ago, we published a post about the event 30 Pianos, 30 Locations, an interactive art installment initially born by British artist Luke Jerram. This past Thursday at noon, 30 pianists at 30 locations throughout L.A. County and beyond sat down and played Bach’s prelude to the Well-Tempered Clavier. We stopped by One [...]

Fido? He’s a Beauty.

Fido? He’s a Beauty.

Fido. Trixie. Bear. Obediah. Standard, funny, nonsensical, and sometimes just plain odd are the names we bestow upon our pets. One of our favorites is for a black Labarador; she answers to the name of Oyster. Whatever their moniker, breed, or pedigree, bring them—one and all—to this Saturday’s Pet Beauty Contest. At One Colorado, owners [...]
