It’s on the boulevard, Eagle Rock Boulevard, which has corners of interest, spots of attraction, but is no Old Pasadena or South Lake Avenue, which can name drop and present a thriving front. But Eagle Rock seems to breathe easier, be casual and intriguing without trying. It’s a place to find hidden treasures and favorite […]

Dolls at the Cactus

Dolls at the Cactus

Fatty’s Lives!

Fatty’s Lives!

Eagle Rock’s venerable vestal of vegan cuisine, Fatty’s, has recently reopened after the owners took a long sabbatical. The intermission seemed endless—I would slowly drive by on my way down Colorado Boulevard, hoping that the strings of twinkly lights would be back on, glowing cheerfully through the big glass garage doors, illuminating happy diners noshing […]

Halong Bay

Halong Bay

Halong Bay is a clever bit of restaurant-as-theater. The room’s high ceilings are shrouded in dark-painted timbers; it looks like there is an intriguing story—in both senses of the word—above the heads of diners. Large, cheesy paintings are offset by tasteful flowers and sensuous china. The menu is an actual scroll, and you get custom-made […]

Larkin’s: Cooking Well and Doing Good

Larkin’s: Cooking Well and Doing Good

On Colorado Boulevard just west of Pasadena sits a fetching little Arts & Crafts bungalow that’s home to a friendly, modern soul-food restaurant, Larkin’s, where the chicken is fried and you drink your wine out of Ball jars. Here’s a lovely piece on the LA Weekly’s food blog Squid Ink by our pal Jenn Garbee […]

Ulla’s Art

Ulla’s Art

Our first exposure to Ulla Anobile’s art was at Cactus Gallery & Gifts in Eagle Rock. The piece was called Dirge Singer, and as that name sounds, it was rather formidable and a bit frightening for those of us weaned on simple Americana. The work springs from a piece resembling wood with claw-like roots, and is […]

Art’s a Driving Force at Cactus

Art’s a Driving Force at Cactus

Six and a half years ago, Sandra Mastroianni went down to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina—the land of waterfalls and butterflies—and fell in love. Literally. She met an artisan, fell in love, returned home, quit her job teaching, and opened Cactus Gallery & Gifts in Eagle Rock. Her initial focus was selling her then-husband Abraham’s jewelry, followed by […]

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

It’s a tired trope in food writing: the reluctance of the writer to describe publicly an unsullied treasure, when a great deal of what’s worth treasuring is the absence of other people. People ruin everything, you know. Somewhere, a dissertation is being written this very minute about the self-loathing incurred by discharging one’s duty, common […]

Occidental College

Occidental College

Okay, so it’s not actually in Pasadena, but since Oxy is just a few miles west in Eagle Rock, it might as well be. Many of its faculty live in Pasadena, its alums are all over town, and when students want fun on a Saturday night, they head for Old Town. One of Southern California’s […]
