A Day at the Getty

A Day at the Getty
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

It was spring, it was a lovely temperature with a blue sky above, and it was our day at the Getty. It felt as though it had been eons since we’d stepped onto the tram and silently zoomed up the hill face to visit the J. Paul Getty Museum. Though is was early, our quartet […]

5,000 SF of Delight: PMRRC’s Open House

5,000 SF of Delight: PMRRC’s Open House

We remember coming down the steep stairs of our grandparents’ 1820 home and seeing a length of model railroad cars, a caboose, and an engine on a horizontal shelf, then walking into the enclosed sun room with an extended oval track set lovingly on the mantle above the fireplace than ran the whole width of […]

Vegan Beer Fest: Does 2 + 2 = 5?

Vegan Beer Fest: Does 2 + 2 = 5?

When we first read “vegan” and “beer” together in a description about a beer and food festival, we were thrown sideways. This just didn’t compute. Doesn’t beer trigger visions of overpriced ballpark dogs at a Dodgers’ game? Or a cooler of cold brews at a clambake on the beach, six-packs and pizzas, or a Negra […]

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

We admit, we’ve got it bad for Ulla. Let us clarify, Ulla’s Art. Ulla Anobile herself is quite wonderful with a dry wit, which is perhaps thanks to her Finnish origins and for which we then thank her Finnish ancestors. And speaking of ancestors, besides sharing her images of the arrival of spring, Ulla is […]

Pritchard Trio at The Fretted Frog

Pritchard Trio at The Fretted Frog

We had the opportunity to attend a fundraiser for Light Bringer Project where the featured musician was David Pritchard. The guitars were acoustic and Pritchard, along with Kevin Tiernan and Ioannis Markoulakis to make up the Pritchard Trio, seemed to venture from gentle jazz and Latin, classical and folk, to blues and slightly country. The […]

Time Twists

Time Twists

“Fetish-like, re-weaved stuff collected from our lives.” This is the description of the pieces by Mike Mollett who is guest artist at Val Echavarria’s Casa Marengo in Highland Park. Mike calls his pieces twists, time-twists, gates, and balls. One twist—a NOLA twist—he made from using New Orleans home security wires given to him by an […]

TS15: “The Tiffany of All Garage Sales”

TS15: “The Tiffany of All Garage Sales”

It’s touted as “the Tiffany of all garage sales,” and as it’s celebrating a 60th anniversary… Nearly 60 years ago, the women of the Pasadena Art Alliance burrowed their way into any attic they could to “skim the cream of the crop” for the first “Treasure Sale.” From 1955 until about 1974, proceeds benefited the […]

Lunching with the Satellite Sisters

Lunching with the Satellite Sisters

Many may know local author, columnist, and humorist Lian Dolan. If not, be assured she’s a woman who emigrated from Connecticut to California with her particularly East Coast humor intact, and we thank the universe for that. Last year, we attended Pasadena Magazine‘s Women in Business Luncheon and Lian was the moderator for an incredible […]

The Sam-Jam

A DJ will create the atmosphere while kids and adults play games, enjoy complimentary eats, engage in competitions, and participate in a “fun” basketball tournament. There will also […]
