Not interested in traipsing the neighborhood with the brood in tow? Instead of door-to-door, go store-to-store in Old Pasadena at One Colorado. Afterwards, a family photo may be taken, even with your favorite canine (if appropriately dressed). After trick or treating, rest your feet and indulge in a Mars bar while watching Mad Monster Party […]

Sorrow Tree

Sorrow Tree

Like a tree spills sap, I spill sorrow. My leaves, mussed by erratic, unknowable winds, grow studded with crystalline droplets of rain until the weight of it is too much for even the branch to bear. Until, one by one, each leaf drops, each tear falls – watering the roots that ripple like a river […]

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells

Early in Andrew Sean Greer’s The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells, Greta walks with her beloved twin brother, Felix, near their childhood home, a brownstone in Patchin Place, Manhattan. It’s their 31st birthday and they’ve just left the party, happy in each other’s company. When a neighbor is outwardly unkind to them Felix asks her, […]

Halloween 2014-Style

Halloween 2014-Style

We’re suckers for the holiday season. From mid-October through the New Year, we love the sounds, smells, tastes and sites. The fact that days seem to disappear quicker during this time of year, though, does not amuse us. The calendar may indicate that there are four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we’d swear after […]

Come to the Masquerade

It’s all about being mobile. Side Street Projects is an artist-run nonprofit that emphasizes teaching “artists how to roll up their sleeves and do things themselves with education programs that encourage self-reliance and creative problem solving.” A low $35 yearly membership allows artists access to a “low cost equipment rental coop, and to (the) $20/day use-anything-on-site program, […]

Saving Libraries

Saving Libraries

According to Altadena Alliance… Since 1993, Altadena voters have overwhelmingly approved the parcel tax to counter crippling State cuts. We need a 2/3 majority to save our Altadena Libraries. If Measure A fails, we face slashed services and perhaps even closures. Help get out the vote. Keep our tradition alive. Keep our libraries open. In […]

SoCal Children’s Museum Opens

SoCal Children’s Museum Opens

(Official press release) Until now, it has been a museum without walls. But an available space on Lake has given us the opportunity to open a fully-functioning – albeit miniaturized – children’s museum right in the heart of Pasadena. We’ve packed our temporary space with all sorts of activities to tickle the imaginations of children under the age of 8 – […]
