Runaway Daughters. Voluptuous Neighbors.

“Stories so raw, we could not publish them.” That’s the tag line on the flyer for the Pasadena Writing Project’s 2nd annual public reading titled “Bars, Breasts and Borders—Too Hot to Print?” Writers from the Memoir Writing Workshop will be reading excerpts, followed by a Q&A and discussion period, and a wine and cheese reception [...]

A Pub Just Around the Corner

A Pub Just Around the Corner

Joe can’t say exactly how many customers in his first six days of business have said, “This place is great; it’s just around the corner from me,” but it’s enough to make him smile. This place is Griffins of Kinsale: an Irish pub on Mission Street in South Pasadena. There are no flat screen TVs, no [...]

Start Your Weekend with a Friday Food Fair

Well, now that we’ve been informed that Food Truck Wednesdays, a fundraising event for the Pasadena PTA, is on a hiatus until the fall, we thought we’d re-direct you to the Chefs Center’s Food Truck Fridays—or more accurately, but much more of a mouthful, the “Spring Friday Food Fair & Artisanal Marketplace.” Chefs Center on [...]

This new derivative is sponsored [...]

It’s a day to reflect on the job they have done; the months and years they have given; the physical, mental and emotional injuries they have had to endure; and the ultimate sacrifice so many [...]

It’s Jacaranda Purple

It’s Jacaranda Purple

Driving around Pasadena, San Marino, and South Pas, you can see that the jacarandas are in bloom. It’s also evident that most of them are not as full and lush as last year, as though only a quarter of the tree is ready for spring, while three-quarters is still hibernating. But the season doesn’t feel [...]
