A Taste of Fall

A Taste of Fall

  It’s not an East Coast fall—with hundred year old maples blinding you with thousands of bright yellow leaves, or the next tree with mixes of oranges, or the one after that with shades of reds from raspberry to burgundy. Here in Southern California, we have to look for our fall. We found a patch [...]

Adopt-A-Family Needs Support

Adopt-A-Family Needs Support

Foothill Family Service recently kicked off its annual Adopt-A-Family Program for local families in need who are receiving treatment from their facilities. For a family receiving mental health treatment, often to overcome trauma, violence, or abuse, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time. FFS matches low-income client families with a donor who will help [...]

Mystery History Comes to Town

Mystery History Comes to Town

Where are we? What’s happening? In the photo to the right, the tents are all set up in the Arroyo Seco for the Clyde Beatty and Russell Brothers’ Combined Circus, which was in town for two days in May 1944.       Here’s an excerpt from a Pasadena Star-News article published May 4, 1944: [...]

Kim Fay’s “The Map of Lost Memories”

Kim Fay’s “The Map of Lost Memories”

Fiction often gives us characters who lie, cheat, and commit murder to achieve their goals. Usually these nefarious types are presented as the villain. But in Kim Fay’s The Map of Lost Memories, our young, determined heroine, Irene Blum, will stop at nothing to claim the mysterious lost scrolls of the Khmer. It’s the mid-1920s [...]

Holiday Dinner à la Julienne

Holiday Dinner à la Julienne

Is cooking not your thing? Would you rather be gift shopping than thumbing through cookbooks and braving the grocery store? Rather be relaxed, laughing, and chatting with a cocktail in hand than cringing and frantic as the green beans get cold, the mash potatoes gluey, and the filet is a 20 minutes away from barely [...]

SGV’s Holiday Lights & Fun

SGV’s Holiday Lights & Fun

We are simply suckers for holiday decorating, whether it’s inside or out, one tree on a small lawn, or a mansion decked to the hilt. In case you do as well, here are some holiday “holiday lighting” sights to see, as well as local holiday events. Do you have any experiences to share? Events, streets, [...]

Holiday Boutiques, Crafts & Fairs

Holiday Boutiques, Crafts & Fairs

There’s so much going on and not enough space! So, we’re slurping several together in the same post (hope you don’t mind): The Handmade Holiday Boutique: Carlie Ochoa will have edible crafts and Maria Garvin baked goods. Lori Koop will be selling ceramics and Darcy Arena Dichroic glass jewelry. Helga Mycroft has made ornaments, Lori [...]

The Holidays on Holly Street

The Holidays on Holly Street

This Thursday, November 29th, from 6-9 p.m. shops on Holly Street in Old Pasadena will hold a holiday party with discounts, give-aways, promotions, hors d’oeuvres, wine, and cocktails. (During the block’s Fall NoCo Week, Jenette Bras was whipping up a smashing Lavender Strap cocktail.) You’ll even be serenaded while you shop at Therapy Pasadena—a jazz [...]

Art from the Forces of Nature

Art from the Forces of Nature

Creating art from destruction and heartache. This is the idea behind the “Forces of Nature Artists Exhibition” at the Arboretum. The unexpectedly brutal windstorm that struck just a year ago took out 235 trees and damaged 1,000 on the Arboretum grounds. “In the subsequent massive cleanup by Los Angeles County crews, private contractors, and countless [...]

From Disney to Pluto

From Disney to Pluto

“In the immediate wake of a local school shooting, single mother Elizabeth Miller and her college-age son Bailey struggle to communicate while also contending with aggressive household appliances, the odd new family pet, a forceful crowd threatening to invade their kitchen, and a tree that’s crashed through the ceiling.” Like, an angry fridge? Or a [...]
