Ghosts of Malls Past: The Plaza Pasadena

Ghosts of Malls Past: The Plaza Pasadena

Ah, the Plaza Pasadena. How to remember a mall that once had the dubious distinction of receiving an engineering excellence award from the Concrete Industry? Mention the Plaza Pasadena to a longtime Pasadena resident and you will most likely get either a chuckle or a scowl. More recent transplants to the city will not recall […]

Linkfest Friday!

Linkfest Friday!

It has been an insane week around here, and tomorrow is Halloween.  This year, I’ll be going as Glenn Beck dressed like a communist (Turns out he’s supposed to be a communist…who knew?).  Just kidding, I’m not going as anything.  I’m actually kind of a Halloween downer, and that, coupled with the insane past few […]

Halloween Haunts Around Town

Halloween Haunts Around Town

We trolled around Pasadena’s best-known trick-or-treating streets to see how things are shaping up for Saturday night, and things are looking plenty spooky. Here’s a look at the haunted houses around town:

Kansai

Kansai

The nice people in this cheerful, open café serve a variety of Japanese dishes (tempura, sushi, gyoza), but the noodles are the thing to get– homemade udon and soba served in a variety of styles and temperatures.

La Grande Orange’s Egg Salad Sandwich

La Grande Orange’s Egg Salad Sandwich

A sandwich, salad or burger at La Grande Orange will set you back $8 to $14 — not exactly unusual for a Santa Monica lunch spot. But then there’s that $9 bag of giant house-made sourdough English muffins that you won’t be able to bike home without. The bargain hunter’s solution? The […] Read the […]

Taking the Plunge: Cassini Soars by Enceladus

Bonnie J. Buratti After so many close flybys of Enceladus, we’re starting to feel as if this little moon of Saturn is an old friend. But during the encounter planned for Nov. 2, 2009, we are going to get up-close and personal. Cassini is going to take its deepest dive yet into the plumes spewing […]

Halloween To Do List

Halloween To Do List

In years past, my goal was to win Halloween. I live in a Destination Trick-or-Treat Zone ( DTZ) , welcoming hundreds of children, and some actual grown-ups with pillow cases, to my door every year. I want to be the house everyone remembers because I am that kind of girl. Competitive. But the competition is […]
