For the Love of Woodworking

For the Love of Woodworking

Professionals from Rockler Woodworking & Hardware want to teach you how to turn a branch into a handle for your barbecue spatula. The Arboretum hosts a 4-class series demonstrating the techniques and methods for working with wood. Rockler is the presenting sponsor of the Arboretum’s “Forces of Nature II” exhibit with works of art created […]

The Ash Girl

The Ash Girl

This is not your ordinary Cinderella story. The lead character in The Ash Girl, a play by Timberlake Wertenbaker, is called Ashgirl, appropriately enough. Besides her stepsisters and stepmother (simply called “Mother”), the Seven Deadly Sins are part of the cast with names such as Slothworm, Gluttontoad, Pridefly, Sadness, and Greedmonkey. Other participants are Otter, Mouse, […]

Politicon 2017

Politicon 2017

Whether your right or left, conservative or liberal on July 29 and 30 at Politicon, the “unconventional political convention,” there are folks you won’t want to miss. For President Trump fans, go listen to his new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci while people with a definitive leftist bent will make a beeline to hear Rob […]

Pickwick Vintage

Pickwick Vintage

If you’re an enthusiast of vintage clothing, jewelry, and other accessories, we suggest you drive beyond Pasadena and out past San Gabriel Valley limits to attend the Pickwick Vintage Show at Pickwick Gardens in Burbank on July 30. Over 65 booths offer a smorgasbord of goodies including textiles, design, and “inspiration.” Shop an assortment of […]

New: Garden Meditation

New: Garden Meditation

The Arboretum brings positive vibes to the work week with a new class: Garden Meditation. “Welcome to Hump Day at the Arboretum!” The idea is to ease the stress of the first part of the week and get ready to face the second part of the week with a “lunch hour revival session.” In an […]

Blushing Bubbles

Blushing Bubbles

If you’re into “production and tasting notes”—if you know what that actually means or would like to know what that means—POP Champagne Bar in Old Pasadena invites you to Blushing Bubbles. POP’s 2nd Blushing Bubbles class is back by popular demand (the first having sold out). Certified Sommelier Michael Scribner leads the way, covering the production and tasting notes […]

Something Wild in My Garden

Something Wild in My Garden

As the summer heat descends—a bit early, mind you; Mother Nature, where’s our “June Gloom”?—and our gardens need attending, Cactus Gallery brings some levity, truth, poignancy, and whimsy into our days with its new exhibit “Something Wild in My Garden.” The show’s featured artist is Olga Ponomarenko: In this series of paintings, I chose wild […]

Wine & Song This Summer

Wine & Song This Summer

Another evening of wine and song; part of the Wednesday Wine & Song Concert Series—”a mid-week, spirit-lifting hootenanny”—thanks to musician and host Brad Colerick. As per usual, the location is the Arroyo Seco Grill at the golf course in South Pasadena. It’s a funky, intimate spot right off the putting green. Food is available; the […]

Altadena Sheriff’s Station Car Show

Altadena Sheriff’s Station Car Show

We thought the word was “hot rod.” Are we merely misremembering the cars in Rebel Without a Cause and American Graffitti? Appearing at the 5th Annual LA County Sheriff’s Department Altadena Station Car Show (could that name be any longer) is what’s being called “street rods.” Also showing off their goods will be vintage trucks and […]

Mystery Lit: Holmes, Sherlock & the Consulting Detective

Mystery Lit: Holmes, Sherlock & the Consulting Detective

Ellen Dostal writing for Broadway Word calls it a “roguishly handsome production” and an “epic whodunit” with a cast that has “whip-smart abilities. Where Wicked Lit uses the mausoleum to achieve a spooky effect, the train depot plays into the dark and foggy night intrigue of Victorian England. It’s a surprisingly versatile canvas on which […]
