Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Joe Normal and Gigi Hutchinson never thought they’d be working together. In the same place; within the same space. Primarily because Joe is a musician and Gigi is a hairdresser. Ah, po-tay-to, po-tah-to. Music and hair styling are vastly different arts, but they’re not polar opposites. Perhaps, they are perfect foils. When the opportunity arose, […]

It’s Fall & Art on Palm

It’s Fall & Art on Palm

It’s time once again to step into the secluded woods. Not scary woods, but Wildwood Park, a small, intimate canyon nestled in the Foothills of Altadena—for Art on Palm, Fall 2015.

One way to figuratively beat the heat is to enjoy the Lake Mariposa End of Summer Sale on September 12. The Altadena Chamber […]

Pasadena Antique Mall

Pasadena Antique Mall

The most important tenet to remember before heading into the Pasadena Antique Mall at Paseo Colorado is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. One, because it’s imperative to be well fed (without overindulging and wanting to crawl back under the covers) and to be caffeine-infused before stepping through the front door. […]
