The Battle to Save Mt. Wilson

The Battle to Save Mt. Wilson

Astronomers from around the world, not to mention all of us locals, watched as the Station Fire swept toward Mt. Wilson, threatening to destroy the historic and important observatory, not to mention a lot of L.A.’s communications infrastructure. Observatory superintendent (and astrophotographer) Dave Jurasevich was there to observe the battle, and he’s coming to the [...]

A Highbrow Weekend for Altadena Bohos

A Highbrow Weekend for Altadena Bohos

A lively bunch of Altadenans and Pasadenans, led by Altadena historian Michele Zack and her colleagues at Altadena Heritage, are bringing back the spirit of legendary Altadenans Jiyayr Zorthian and Gus Albrecht this weekend, and arts lovers won’t want to miss it. Fifty years after artist Zorthian and chemistry professor and musician Albrecht put on [...]

Pasadena History Goes Literary

Pasadena History Goes Literary

Something’s going on at the formerly sleepy Pasadena Museum of History — its roster of fall events is remarkably rich. If you’re a reader and/or a writer — and who isn’t at least one of those? — take note of two upcoming events with a literary bent. The first is a Chinese meal and discussion [...]

Gary V the Wine Guy at Vroman’s

Gary V the Wine Guy at Vroman’s

Expect a crowd at Vroman’s on Thursday night, when Gary Veynerchuk will appear to speak and sign his new book, Crush It. But if you’re an oenophile hoping to chat about Calatayud wines, this won’t be the event for you — although Veynerchuk is famous for the online videos of his hyperactive, regular-guy wine discussions, [...]

We’re looking forward to joining Ann Erdman, the city of Pasadena’s public information officer, at her table for the Women for Racial Justice breakfast on Monday, sponsored by the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley.

Richard III at a Noise Within

Richard III at a Noise Within

A Noise Within, the classical repertory theater company that’s long been based in Glendale (but is moving to Pasadena next year), has kicked off the new season with a production of Shakespeare’s Richard III. Directed by the company’s co-artistic director, Geoff Elliott, the production hews to the classic standards; it’s set in 1483 and chronicles [...]

Free Book Swap at Vroman’s

Free Book Swap at Vroman’s

Goodreads, the book-lover’s social networking site started by a UCLA student, is partnering with Vroman’s this Saturday to host a book swap. Everyone’s encouraged to bring their summer-reading books and swap them with fellow readers. Kudos to Vroman’s for helping with this event, because it’s free and involves no money changing hands for books — [...]

Huntington Food & Wine Fest Returns

Huntington Food & Wine Fest Returns

It’s not easy to find out about the annual food and wine festival that supports Huntington Hospital (this year, the Center for Trauma Care) — there’s almost no promotion for it, and a web site doesn’t go up until tickets are almost sold out. And yet everyone seems to know about it, because it’s one of [...]
