Saturday

Yesterday I did what you’re supposed to do on a Saturday: something fun, with friends. First we enjoyed a lecture about Pasadena’s historic Busch Gardens (1904-1938), given by Michael Logan as a fundraiser for Pasadena Heritage. Later, as part of the event, we toured Busch Gardens sites in west Pasadena, some of which were on [...]

Jonesing for a Good Read

Jonesing for a Good Read

I never seem to have my laptop with me when I stop by Jones Coffee Roasters on South Raymond Avenue, so I’ve never done a Quest-type review of the place. There’s a small seating area in the cavernous space, the rest of which seems to be devoted to what the folks at Jones are devoted [...]

Going Vertical

Going Vertical

The skylight and dangling bulbs above the stairway leading to Vertical Wine Bistro make for an intriguing entryway. Ever since the place opened I’ve wondered what it was like inside. I found out Tuesday night when I attended a get-together to celebrate the success of Hometown Pasadena, the go-to blog for what’s happening here in [...]

Foothill Fountain Yard and Garden Decor

Foothill Fountain Yard and Garden Decor

When I drive by this funky “outdoor store” where the 210 freeway flies over Foothill Blvd. I wonder what they’ve got and if I want it. So John and I finally checked out Foothill Fountain Yard and Garden Decor to find out. It was raining Monday–the perfect time to shop outdoors!–and owner Paul Moreno’s shop [...]

Kay Mouradian

Kay Mouradian

I love writers of all kinds. I love journalists, novelists, humorists, essayists and anyone who works hard to make the words meaningful when they put pen to paper or fingers to keys. And Kay Mouradian is particularly easy to like, because she’s Kay. This photo of her with a fan at the Los Angeles Times [...]

Zen Monday: #96

Zen Monday: #96

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Crown City Jewel

Crown City Jewel

Someone once told me the Pawn Shop at the corner of Colorado Blvd. and Raymond Avenue was one of the oldest buildings in town. But I hadn’t known until I took the Pasadena Heritage Old Town Walking Tour that it was designed by our famous local brothers, Charles and Henry Greene. Today’s first photo was [...]

I Say Dodworth, You Say Dodsworth?

I Say Dodworth, You Say Dodsworth?

Yesterday’s photo of the Dodworth Building was different from today’s in many ways. Yesterday’s photo was taken by me in 2010, looking at the north face of the building on Colorado Blvd. Today’s photo was taken by Terry Griest in 1984, looking at the building from the northeast. Terry’s our graphic designer friend from the [...]

Superfluous Details: Dodworthy

Superfluous Details: Dodworthy

Designed by J.J. Blick, the Dodworth Building has stood at the corner of Fair Oaks and Colorado, directly south of the building I featured yesterday, since 1902. Right now it houses the Cheesecake Factory (warning: talking website). Get a load of all those superfluous details! The Pasadena Heritage Old Town Walking Tour is informative, and [...]
