710 Tunnel Decision

Today the Pasadena City Council will “take a position” on the 710 Freeway tunnel. Should a tunnel complete the Long Beach Freeway, creating a link from the 10 to the 210 Freeways?

“Parsifal” & “On Canaan’s Side”

Parsifal by Jim Krusoe If you have a taste for the surreal, a wry, dark sense of humor that might not be getting enough exercise, and a high tolerance for ambiguity, check out South Pasadena’s own Jim Krusoe. His latest novel, Parsifal, is as cagey and laugh-out-loud funny as his previous books. Cagey: What exactly [...]

Il Fornaio, A Speakeasy

For one night, Pasadena’s Il Fornaio is turning into a speakeasy, with help from neighborhood friends Elisa B., Goorin Brothers, Wasabi, and Origins.

Cactus Miniatures

Cactus Miniatures

The title of this post is a bit misleading. It should read, but doesn’t because it’s too long, is “Cactus Gallery‘s 7th Annual Tiny Miniatures Show Opens This Saturday, December 8th.” Forty-five artists will be participating, exhibiting holiday ornaments; mixed media, acrylic, and oil paintings; sculptures and toys; and ceramics and jewelry. All the artwork [...]
