Go Go’ers, February was so packed with fun and frivolity that Ms. Go Go is just now pausing for breath. Good thing we had that extra Leap Year day to stave off boredom. March is already proving to be no slouch in the Get Up and Go Go department. Ms. Go Go knows you will [...]

Hope for Cottage Food Producers

This weekend on KPCC’s Off-Ramp, I talked to breadmaker Mark Stambler and California Assembly Member Mike Gatto about the in-the-works legislation to legalize “cottage food” businesses—breadmakers, nut roasters, and other creators of non-dangerous food items for sale.

Wine and cheese tastings are held [...]

Three cheers for SGV entertainers and video makers the Fung Brothers for this terrific music-video shout-out to the joys of the 626.

Sexo y Violencia, Decadent Fairies, and Exquisite Edwardians

Go Go’ers, if you have plans for this week, cancel them immediately.  If you were heading out of town, unpack now.  And Ms. Go Go will wait while you set the DVR to record a week’s worth of every TV show you watch. You won’t be sorry. Simply put, there is more high-octane entertainment in [...]
