Altadena Farmers’ Market Opens Big

Altadena Farmers’ Market Opens Big

There’s a new reason to knock off work early on Wednesdays. On May 30th, the long-awaited Altadena Certified Farmers Market made its debut at the south end of Loma Alta County Park, just off Lincoln Ave. on Palm St. in Altadena. The small, weekly market (about 30 vendors) has a prime location next to the Altadena Community [...]

Gastropub vs. Ale House: Self-identification Is Tricky

Gastropub vs. Ale House: Self-identification Is Tricky

As has been discussed here before, the term “gastropub” immediately conjures up some sort of boardroom trying to guess the next trend. “Gastropubs,” the men in the suits say. “That’s what the hip kids like today.” In contrast, an “ale house” brings to mind long tables and beer—something simpler, something, well, less pretentious. This time [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Nothin’ Like a Home Brew

Nothin’ Like a Home Brew

Beer-cabulary. Bottling and conditioning. Mash and sparge. Beer-curious? Spell check just red-underlined half of those words (and “words.”) Welcome to the creative and independent spirit of the Institute of Domestic Technology. Now the name may be a bit of a mouthful and recall nightmares of college courses not in your liberal arts major, but IDT [...]

Espress Yourself

Espress Yourself

Among Pasadena’s many hidden jewels, you’ll surely want to check out (excuse the pun) Espress Yourself, the coffeehouse on the sun-splashed patio of the Pasadena Public Library, where library patrons, police, and legal eagles from the courthouse next door stop by for a most pleasant repast. Distinguishing itself from your run-of-the-mill coffee shop in several [...]
