The Art of Romance — and Food

The Art of Romance — and Food

For 23 years, the Folk Tree has heralded Valentine’s Day with a Hearts & Flowers art exhibition, which runs from late January to late February. Love is always the theme; this year’s show will feature works by some 50 artists (including Esau Andrade, Kina Clay, Sumi Foley, Sandra Gallegos and Kathi Oshima): jewelry, ceramics, mixed [...]

Toying with Science at Caltech

Toying with Science at Caltech

If you ever wanted to be on Bill Nye the Science Guy‘s show but never got the chance, Garry Krinsky‘s upcoming performance at Caltech might be a fair approximation. Except with juggling, singing, dancing and, uh… mime (which I actually quite enjoy). The performance, called “Toying with Science,” looks to be a vaudeville-meets-science-lecture kind of [...]

Night with a Cheese Nerd

Night with a Cheese Nerd

Tired of the same old gouda? Ready to move beyond brie? Then head to Vroman’s Bookstore on Friday evening for a guided cheese tasting by Alex Brown of South Pasadena’s Nicole’s. A multiple grilled-cheese contest champion, Alex calls himself a “certifiable cheese nerd,” and he doesn’t do the usual food-pairing thing. Instead you’ll learn, as [...]

Guided Hikes in Rubio Canyon

Guided Hikes in Rubio Canyon

The Arroyo & Foothills Conservancy (formerly the Altadena Foothills Conservancy) recently acquired a bit of land in Rubio Canyon, which they are putting to immediate use with a series of Saturday hikes led by knowledgeable guides, including Michele Zack. The hikes end at the Canyon’s waterfalls, which are lovely, especially after the recent rains. If [...]

Critically lauded (like just about everything ANW does), the production is running for just eight days, starting this Saturday, so scoop up your tickets now. [...]

Off-Ramp: The Radio Show

Off-Ramp: The Radio Show

Forgive the self-promotion, but we must report that Colleen Dunn Bates, editor of EAT: Los Angeles and Hometown Pasadena, will be on John Rabe’s show Off-Ramp on KPCC this weekend, talking a little about the new 2010 edition of EAT: Los Angeles, but more about the hows and whys of what we eat. Off-Ramp, a [...]

Offramp: The Gallery

Offramp: The Gallery

Slowly growing in stature and following, Pasadena’s Offramp Gallery has a double-header opening this Sunday afternoon. The event celebrates the opening of  shows by two artists: Stare, a video installation by Joey Santarromana, and two shows by Erika Suderburg: Some Small Groups 1974-2009, assemblages of one-inch-square photographic prints, and Landscape for il Sassetta, a video [...]

Caltech Clean Tech Seminar

Caltech Clean Tech Seminar

Any aspiring clean-tech entrepreneurs out there? If so, next Saturday’s Caltech-sponsored forum on the subject is a must-attend. California, it turns out, attracts a majority (as in over 50%) of U.S. clean tech investment, and is way ahead of its Union siblings in enacting forward-thinking energy-efficiency standards (these two things are maybe related?). So if [...]
