Glendale’s Casa Verdugo & the Historical Society’s Home Tour

Imagine 2,500 hungry shriners walking through the door of your establishment and wanting to be satisfied? The national shriner convention was held in Los Angeles in May, 1906, and thousands of shriners boarded the Red Car and headed for Glendale to dine at Casa Verdugo. The adobe that established this restaurant was constructed about 1865 [...]

Green Brooms Music Comes to South Pas

Green Brooms Music Comes to South Pas

Pick up an instrument and play from the heart. That sentiment is behind the philosophy posited by Green Brooms Music Academy founders Gyllian and Manuel Lozano. “Not everyone has the same motivation for learning or takes the same musical path,” says Gyllian, who has spent much of her life proving that music is for every [...]

Viva Tequila!

Viva Tequila!

The perpetually gracious and smiling host and owner of El Portal Restaurant, Abel Ramirez, once again presents their yearly “Tequila Tasting” on Thursday, September 12th. We indulged in last year’s festivities and they were quite an eye opener (literally) and, of course, informative (though an addled brain isn’t conducive to effective note-taking). We did our [...]

Emerging Artists at Jones

Emerging Artists at Jones

If Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), Edvard Munch, and Alphonse Mucha spent the evenign chatting at Hokusai’s garden party, they would probably conjure images like Kierstan Cherry’s acrylic and ink characters.
