On the Beach: So Long Summer

On the Beach: So Long Summer

Even though more and more children return to school in mid-August (a miserable decision), Labor Day is still the official indicator that summer is at an end. To acknowledge our gratefulness for living in Southern California—and despite the recent vicious heat wave, which sparks wistful visions of the sunny, 45º September temps in Nuuk, Greenland—we […]

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden by Tim Callahan   While the sun is yet low and golden in the western sky let us call to mind those we have lost to the ever onrushing pall of darkness. We hope they have gone into mystery, not oblivion. Some tell us they’ve risen to glory […]

Chicken Paprikash

End of Summer Sale

End of Summer Sale

Figuratively, summer is at an end as the kids have reluctantly returned to school. As we all are aware, summer is literally making its present felt as the current 3-digit temperatures prove. One way to figuratively beat the heat is to enjoy the Lake Mariposa End of Summer Sale on September 12. The Altadena Chamber […]

The Lost Adult Theaters of Pasadena

The Lost Adult Theaters of Pasadena

They were called “dirty movie houses,” “adult cinemas,” or “girlie theaters.” From 1959 until about 1990, Pasadena had roughly ten of them, ranging from soft-core “nudie cutie” houses to hardcore venues. Some were former picture palaces fallen on hard times; others little more than dingy-looking storefronts – but before the Internet, DVDs and Blu-Ray cornered […]
