If you’re a young whippersnapper like me, maybe the first you heard of Connie Rice was on KCRW earlier this week, talking about suing the LAPD into reform and meeting child assassins in housing projects. If you’re not a whippersnapper, and you’ve paid attention to the recent history of law enforcement and civil rights in […]

Pasadena PinotFest Grand Kickoff Dinner

Pasadena PinotFest Grand Kickoff Dinner

We spent a lot of time trying to come up with a wine joke to make this event go down easier, but really, it doesn’t need one. Furthermore, wine isn’t funny. Especially pinot. It’s serious. PinotFest, which kicks off this Saturday and runs through February 11th, is deadly serious. The Kickoff Dinner is a six-course […]

KPCC: Relationships in the Age of Social Media

KPCC: Relationships in the Age of Social Media

Relationships are hard. Does social media make them harder? A panel this week at KPCC’s community event space, the Crawford Famiyl Forum, explores just that: “the rules of romantic (dis)engagement in the blog/vlog/Facebook/Twitter era.” A confusing subject indeed, and one that the three panelists will shed some light on for you baffled lovers gazing longingly […]

Border Radio Returns to the Coffee Gallery

Border Radio Returns to the Coffee Gallery

Border Radio is an acoustic bluegrass/folk outfit that’s been stomping around Los Angeles off and on since the year 2000. They reunited just last year after a hiatus of many moons to play the one and only Coffee Gallery, and then sadly had their holiday spectacular there cancelled due to Altadena’s notorious wind-related power outage. But […]

Tea Obreht (The Tiger’s Wife) at Vroman’s

The Tiger’s Wife was one of the best reviewed books of 2011, a commercial and critical success that garnered effusive praise from pretty much everybody, including Vroman’s head book buyer. Its author, a young whippersnapper (born in ’85) from Belgrade by the name of Tea Obreht, will be at Vroman’s not this Wednesday but the […]

The Second Annual Cartoon Hall of Fame Big Screen Event!

That’s not even the whole title. The whole title, strictly speaking, is: “Alex Film Society Presents: The Second Annual Cartoon Hall of Fame Big Screen Event!” If someone had a sense of humor, it would be: “Alex Film Society Presents: The Second Annual Cartoon Hall of Fame Big Screen Event, Presented by the Alex Film […]

The Arboretum is Reopening!

The Arboretum is Reopening!

Like most things in the SGV, the Arboretum was hit hard by the recent wind disaster–325 trees were knocked down, and 700 more were damaged. They had to close down for a while. But they’ll be reopening the day after Christmas, just in time for a post-holiday stroll through one of LA’s scenic treasures.   […]

The Artist Studio at One Colorado

Perhaps the most interesting storefront in OneColoradoPlazacan be found at 24 Smith Alley. More often than not, you can’t buy anything there. It’s The Artist Studio, a collaboration with the Armory that turns the showroom at 24 Smith Alley into an interactive space. Through the rest of the year (!) the artist-in-residence is David P. […]
