It’s Octoberfest, Asian-style. Celebrate the year with beer! Or, a variety of beers… and dumplings… at San Gabriel’s Dumpling & Beer Fest on October 1, at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. Not only dumplings are on the menu, but egg rolls, spring rolls, pork belly katsu, and Korean chicken wings (to name a few). For […]

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

We believe Pasadena “does” chocolate pretty dang well. Mignon, Amara, Contessa, and Marco Paolo  (MP’s hand-painted chocolates pictured right). Now, take these four quality chocolate makers and square them to the nth degree, and welcome to The 9th Annual Los Angeles Chocolate Salon. This is not just a show, a taste-testing, or an exhibit. A […]

Sniff, Sip & Swish at Everson Royce

Sniff, Sip & Swish at Everson Royce

Imagine that with every second sip, you’re making a donation. This is because over 50% of the event ticket price to the 2nd Annual Wine Tasting at Everson Royce will benefit Five Acres, which for 127 years has been working so children may have safe, loving, and permanent homes.

D2 for Happy Hour

D2 for Happy Hour

Rather than meet for our monthly late morning coffee, our small band of (mostly) women decide to do an early evening, gathering for Happy Hour at DusitD2 Constance Hotel Pasadena. Though the name is laborious and clunky, this historic site, formerly known as the Constance Hotel and built in 1926 by Perry Constance, has been […]

Colonial Kitchen

Colonial Kitchen

It’s a building we’ve driven by more times than we can count and it registers fleetingly because of the name Colonial Kitchen rising up above the roofline and the Union Jack that flies out front, alongside the Stars and Stripes (well, to be accurate, they each take a corner). It’s an establishment that’s never pulled […]

Nekter Comes to Pasadena

Nekter Comes to Pasadena

It’s all about the juice. The cold press. The cleanse. And, of course, acai (or açaí). “Juicers” love their fruit and veggies in liquid form and now they’ll have another option in Pasadena: Nekter Juice Bar. Steve and Alexis Schulze founded Nekter five years ago in their local community of Costa Mesa and now have […]

Four-Course Beer Dinner

If microbreweries, signature brews, small batches, and craft beers get you out of the barcalounger or off the mountain bike, then take a look… Del Frisco’s Grille on South Lake in Pasadena is teaming up with Golden Road Brewing and offering a 4-course “beer” dinner on July 30th.

Antigua Bread

Antigua Bread

A friend of mine who’s a chef and of Mexican descent introduced us to what has become one of our favorite breakfast spots: Antigua Bread on Huntington Drive just a bit west of Fremont Avenue. We meet one early morning and after receiving a strong, rich latte, we demur to our friend’s breakfast suggestions as […]
