A Jeanne Kelley Fall Salad—Perfect for…Now!

A Jeanne Kelley Fall Salad—Perfect for…Now!

Figs are in. Now. Right this minute. Author and food writer Jeanne Kelley has wonderfully, incredibly, marvelously (are those enough superlatives?) offered to share a Fall salad recipe with Hometown Pasadena readers. She reports though that this is a time-sensitive recipe. Figs are currently in season and it appears this window doesn’t last long. Our [...]

Old Town Haunt

Old Town Haunt

It’s October, so down to the tunnels you go. October 5th is the opening night for Pasadena’s Old Town Haunt. Come follow the trail of the catacombs, the same catacombs where in 1929, as a consequence of a street-widening project, twelve residents were found, deceased, their bodies “hideously torn apart.” The history of this site [...]

Looking For Acorns

Looking For Acorns

The Arroyo Seco Foundation Watershed program coordinator is sending out a call for acorns. He’s asking for residents to put in their refrigerator any acorns from a fruitful oak tree—especially those that are on a leaf-bearing twig—then send him an email at jonathan(at)arroyoseco.org or call 323.405.7326. They will arrange a pick up and then will nurse and [...]

Oktoberfest: Montrose Style

Oktoberfest: Montrose Style

When we think of Oktoberfest, it usually conjures up images of massive beer steins, elbow-to-elbow crowds in large halls or biergartens, and lots of staggering. Well, here’s an alternative: the 35th Annual Montrose Oktoberfest. This Saturday, October 6th, the grand festival runs along the 2300 and 2400 blocks of Honolulu Avenue from noon until 11 [...]

Latino Heritage Parade

Latino Heritage Parade

It all leads to jamaica. Not Jamaica the lovely islands in the Antilles, but jamaica with a little “j,” pronounce ha-my-ca, which is a traditional community fair. This year’s 14th Annual Latino Heritage Parade on Saturday, October 6th, will begin at Howard Street and Los Robles Avenue in Pasadena and have its jamaica at La [...]

Vertical’s Oktoberfest

Vertical’s Oktoberfest

Vertical Wine Bistro is “bringing Munich to Pasadena.” Oktoberfest dates back to 1810 when Crown Prince Ludwig invited the locals to celebrate his marriage to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, clueless about the historical significance of this invitation—the consequent conceptualization, the ever-popular and ever-growing spirited realization, let alone the fervent adherents this “autumnal festival of merrymaking [...]

Sons of Anarchy with One Heart

Sons of Anarchy with One Heart

“When Sons of Anarchy finished filming Season 4, my wife and I went to Tanzania to visit our daughter who was working as Education Director of the school (One Heart Source). There we found our daughter happily living in a mud hut, teaching elementary school students, and fluently speaking Swahili. No electricity, no running water—but [...]

A Hollywood Star for Gale Anne Hurd

A Hollywood Star for Gale Anne Hurd

They’re classics: The Terminator, The Abyss, and Aliens. They’re documentaries: True Whispers and The Pirate Code. They’re suspenseful, adventurous, and patriotic: Armageddon. They’re silly: Tremors. They’re zombies (always a crowd pleaser): “The Walking Dead.” They’re sometimes green: The Hulk. “They” have all been produced by Pasadena local Gale Anne Hurd and this Wednesday, October 3rd, she will be receiving [...]
