Pasties & Pies

Pasties & Pies

It’s a bit out of the way and one must appreciate that running into patience-depriving traffic is a given for 23 hours out of every 24, but if you ever find yourself in Long Beach and are pining for a pàsty or pie, we’d suggest Pásty Bakery on Pine Avenue just north of Broadway. We [...]

A Stroll Through the Langham

A Stroll Through the Langham

We attended Pasadena Magazine‘s Women in Business Awards at the Langham Huntington Hotel last month and was moved, motivated, and inspired by the three panelists: Chanel Boutakidis of Five Acres, Andrea Herz Payne of Aid Still Required, and Pasadena resident Amie Satchu of Foundation for Living Beauty. Unsurprisingly, the event was even more enjoyable, and funny, [...]

Pics of a Bridge Party

Pics of a Bridge Party

We arrived early and the grassy patch at Orange Grove and Colorado Boulevards was already flowing with people. Wreck ‘n Sow serenaded arrivals with their bluegrass sounds. We walked along the pathway with a dozen children’s activity stations to our left and classic Mustangs on our right. Our enthusiasm erupted (rather embarrassingly with lots of gushing [...]

Grand Central Market

Wardrobe at the Bus Stop, Ride for Water & a House with Holes

Last Saturday while running errands and playing chauffeur to an as-yet unlicensed 16-year-old, what we saw had us making u-turns from Altadena right down into South Pas. Right and below: A new build on Los Robles Avenue, north of Glenarm Street.             At first, the magenta sign below was so [...]

Jury Walkabout No. 2

Jury Walkabout No. 2

On our first Tuesday as a full-fledged juror, designated as one of twelve “judges” by the sitting judge herself, we strolled and sweated through the heat, down through the bottom half of Grand Park and then around the side of City Hall only to be told, “It’s not here today.” The “it” is what’s promised [...]

Jury Duty Walkabout

Jury Duty Walkabout

We’ve drawn jury duty. Two and a half days later and we’re sitting on a jury, a civil trial that may go nine working days. At the rate we’re going, all the jurors are mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially preparing themselves for longer. One perk: an hour and a half lunch, during which we’ve walked [...]

Zamperini to Lead the Rose Parade

Zamperini to Lead the Rose Parade

Louis Zamperini, who’s life and trials are the subject of Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken, has been chosen to be the Grand Marshall for the 126th Rose Parade. We can’t think of a better choice—and, not a moment too soon. On January 26, 2015, Zamperini will turn 98 years old. Louie started smoking at five years old, [...]
