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 […]

“A Handbag?!!” Notes on “Being Earnest”

“A Handbag?!!” Notes on “Being Earnest”

Editor’s note: We are seduced every time by Oscar Wilde’s wit and cutting dialogue, as our well-thumbed copy of The Collected Works of Oscar Wilde will attest. Parson’s Nose Theater presents a reading of  The Importance of Being Earnest on June 10 and 11. Thanks to Parson’s Nose co-founder Lance Davis, we shall let the professionals do […]

Artes Vocales “Breaking Free”

Artes Vocales “Breaking Free”

Artes Vocales of Los Angeles presents its spring concert “Breaking Free” with a pre-concert soiree and silent auction at First United Methodist Church on June 3. We’ve read that the acoustics of the sanctuary are “superior,” so if this program is of interest… Breaking Free explores the universal yearning for freedom from a variety of perspectives, […]
