Friday Night Music with Raúl Pacheco

Friday Night Music with Raúl Pacheco
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Raúl Pacheco looks like, sounds like, and appears to be one of the nicest guys on the planet with one of the best smiles in the world. He’s also the guitarist and sings vocals for the Grammy Award-winning group Ozomatli, which “fuses music from around the world in an urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, […]

Hen’s Teeth & the Sidewalk Cafe

Hen’s Teeth & the Sidewalk Cafe

They started with a coffee cart and small business events. Kip had experience in the food and beverage industry. Bernard was a bartender. The third in the group, Ayo, was a photographer. But there weren’t a lot of coffeehouses in the area, so they opened Sidewalk Cafe at Woodbury and Los Robles, “where Pasadena and […]

DIY Coffee Roasting in Altadena

DIY Coffee Roasting in Altadena

My left hand was cramping, locked in a death grip on the wooden handle of a hot Whirley-Pop popcorn popper as my right hand cranked the stirrer that spun around the pot’s interior.

Eaton Canyon – Nature Calls

Eaton Canyon – Nature Calls

When we get walloped with our inevitable end-of-the-season heat wave, it’s time to consider taking the kids to cool off at Eaton Canyon Falls. A moderately paced, 3.5-mile hike on the fourth Sunday of each month (9 a.m. to noon) lets overworked parents unwind while youngsters boulder-hop and splash through myriad imagination-inspiring streams. Another option […]

Wheel Food Wednesdays

Wheel Food Wednesdays

Every Wednesday since May, Jones Coffee Roasters has been pairing with food trucks of every stripe to bring locals an evening of fun food and music. First-timers curious about the crowd in the small parking lot mix with regulars who never miss a week. Every Wednesday, a new group of trucks and carts appears, but […]

Coffeehouses for Every Need

Coffeehouses for Every Need

In Pasadena (and neighboring Hometown towns) we are blessed with nearly as many independent coffee houses are there are beans in a pound of Mocha Java. Each establishment has loyal fans, each has at least one thing that makes them special, and all make a great cup of joe (espresso/macchiato/cappuccino). We have listed some of […]

KindKreme

KindKreme

KindKreme is not something you slather on your dinosaur-skin elbows or use to whiten your teeth. Neither is it a concoction from Harry Potter that turns bullies into sweethearts. Rather, it’s a vegan, organic, sustainable café that has a rocking ice cream counter, a smoothie/juice bar, coffee and some damn decent lunch choices. If you’re […]

Fiore Market Café

Fiore Market Café

I have a couple of new addictions that you should know about: the roast chicken sandwich and the piccolo cappuccino at South Pasadena’s sweet new spot, Fiore Market Café. That’s not to say the other offerings aren’t good—they are. It’s just hard to not keep getting that same sandwich. Made with bread baked daily by […]

Gotta Go: Saturday Morning in Old Pasadena

Gotta Go: Saturday Morning in Old Pasadena

It’s sunny in Pasadena, but an 8 a.m. car drop-off for new tires inspires doubt. I think I was oversold. I don’t really need Pirellis for the Prius. So I walk the Lake Avenue neighborhood, opting to raise my heart rate through exercise instead of anxiety. I need to live long enough to pay for […]

Intelligentsia Coffee

Intelligentsia Coffee

We stopped into Intelligentsia the other day, a few weeks after its opening, and saw that it is settling very successfully into Old Pasadena life. Things were quiet for the first week or two, but now the word is out, and it appears that every under-30 person in town with an deliberately ragged haircut, a […]
