Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Snotty Scotty at the Rancho

Known as the “unoffocial band of Pasadena’s Occasional Doo Dah Parade,” Snotty Scotty and the Hankies take pride in their slogan: Closing Pasadena’s finest bars since 1971. This Saturday night they’ll be playing their joyous, goofy blend of surf music, rock and garage-band party music at Altadena’s Rancho Bar, one of the funkier dives around […]

Words & Art: Written in California

Words & Art: Written in California

From science and art we move smoothly to literature and art — the same night as the Caltech talk about science and art, a new reading series launches at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Called Written in California, the series kicks off with readings by three poets published by Red Hen Press, which recently […]

Attention Animal Lovers

Attention Animal Lovers

The Pasadena Humane Society is offering two summer workshops for kids, one for 10- to 12-year-olds and one for 13- to 14-year-olds.

Science Meets Art at Caltech

Saturday

Yesterday I did what you’re supposed to do on a Saturday: something fun, with friends. First we enjoyed a lecture about Pasadena’s historic Busch Gardens (1904-1938), given by Michael Logan as a fundraiser for Pasadena Heritage. Later, as part of the event, we toured Busch Gardens sites in west Pasadena, some of which were on […]

Church of Wine?

Church of Wine?

We had to share this photo taken by Petrea Burchard of Pasadena Daily Photo, who joined us the other night at a party for our advertisers, writers and some of our favorite bloggers at Vertical Wine Bistro. It was fun to watch her quietly slip away from the chatter and poke around with her camera, […]

In the Pink

In the Pink

Abraham Lincoln + Vampires = Learning

Abraham Lincoln + Vampires = Learning

Two more literary mash-ups appeared in our office today: this time, it is Android Karenina and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Undead. Cue despairing sigh. For those of you who don’t know, a mash-up is a great work of literary fiction or a common literary theme with something new thrown in. “Something New” […]
