Cozy Up to the Library

Pasadena Central Library’s Centennial Room Yesterday, several of my neighbors packed their kids in their cars and headed to Altadena to play in the snow. My friends in Burbank said they made a snowman, but I haven’t seen pictures. I grew up in a cold climate and I moved to the west coast for a [...]

Precipitation

Because it’s Saturday I considered showing you pictures of outdoor activities like hiking and biking. But because we expect thundershowers all weekend, that would be cruel. And because I don’t have a picture of someone reading by a fireplace in a cozy nook, here’s a picture of petals from a Pink Cloud Flowering Cherry tree [...]

Bar Celona

Bar Celona

If Bar Celona is any indication, Pasadena’s bars are a tad more upscale than the “Coldest Beer in Town!” joints I used to frequent in my days of…frequenting.
