“Two Decades of Amazing”

“Two Decades of Amazing”

It began as a family project, a way for Sierra Madre educator Gayle Blumel to offer her children to have a “meaningful and nurturing summer program.” “It” became the GATE Summer Musical Program. The name has morphed into the Pasadena Musical Theatre Program and is now celebrating it’s 20 year anniversary. Over two decades, thousands […]

The Stager

The Stager

With The Stager, Susan Coll has created a funny, crisp, self-aware farce that skewers Big Ambition, Big Pharma, and Big Housing Stock alike with the help of a literal-minded ten-year-old (Elsa), a rabbit who may or may not speak (Dominique), and a wry sense of English major humor and outsider wit. Elsa’s father Lars, a […]

Clip of Wing

Clip of Wing

I hadn’t seen Wing in perhaps four years, but he remembered me when I came last week and silently motioned me to his chair. I explained I had not come for a haircut this time but would like to hear his stories so I could write about him. He consented, but only to answer direct […]

Joan Quinn Captured

Joan Quinn Captured

Another reason we support the local creative endeavor of Inside the Story by sisters Susan Cherney and Wendy Moss: covering their fascinating Art & Alchemy of Perfume event back in March 2013, we met Laura Kane who has remembered Hometown Pasadena and informed us of an art exhibit that sounds particularly interesting and unique. The exhibition ‘Joan […]

The Non-Conformist Arts Convention

The Non-Conformist Arts Convention

On the eastern edge of San Gabriel Valley, promises are being made—or warnings are being issued (depending on how you choose to interpret the situation)—3 days of convention activities in 4 hours. So rest up. It’s the inaugural Non-Conformist Arts Convention on July 26th in Pomona. Featured artists: Edward Beardsley, American artist. He was a professor and dean […]

“We wish to do the tourist who reads this book a good turn, having his comfort and enjoyment at heart; therefore we advise him to stop at Lamanda Park and make his headquarters for a day, or a week, or a fortnight, in this delightful spot.” – Over the Range to the Golden Gate: A Complete Tourist’s […]

Living Green Expo

Living Green Expo

Conservation and sustainability will be on the tips of tongues at the Green Living Expo in South Pasadena on Sunday, July 20th. A variety of hybrid cars and bicycles may be seen and ogled at a “clean air” show and workshops on yard design and turf rebates (for South Pas residents) and water wise plants and irrigating them […]

Lemon Curd Berry Tart

Lemon Curd Berry Tart

This tart has come to be my ultimate summer night dessert. I’ve probably made it every week for the past 2 months for whoever is around and willing to taste it. I just think the contrast between the bright yellow lemon curd and the little circles that form around the berries when the tart is […]

Baking Bread 101

Baking Bread 101

She was an official expat for nearly a decade. Unsurprisingly, once Debra Cohen returned home, American bread just didn’t really do it for her. Debra began baking using techniques gleaned from French and German bakers (and the New York Times). Now, Debra runs a “home-based” bakery in Altadena and delivers fresh loaves to lucky recipients. […]

It’s a Bridge Party

It’s a Bridge Party

After a rack of Big Mama’s pork ribs or Gourmet Grill Masters‘ chicken seekh kabob, cool yourself down with a Bulgarini gelato or enhance your waist line with one of Pam’s Sweet Shack’s funnel cakes. Don’t sweat the infusion of calories—you’ll be working it off dancing—as there will be three stages with live music at Pasadena Heritage’s […]
