Viva Tequila!

The perpetually gracious and smiling host and owner of El Portal Restaurant, Abel Ramirez, once again presents their yearly “Tequila Tasting” on Thursday, September 12th.

The Green House Gift Shop exists to support and raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. At their […]

Latino Heritage Parade

It all leads to jamaica. Not Jamaica the lovely islands in the Antilles, but jamaica with a little “j,” pronounce ha-my-ca, which is a traditional community fair. This year’s 14th Annual Latino Heritage Parade on Saturday, October 6th, will begin at Howard Street and Los Robles Avenue in Pasadena and have its jamaica at La […]

Tequila Fun

Tequila Fun

It was quickly apparent that a pre-event shower was overkill; sweat could soon be felt running down our backs and along our hairlines. It was only 6:30 and the patio outside El Portal was packed. People held plates, piling them high with treats from the generous buffet of appetitzers—tasty empanadas, meatballs, tacos, smoked salmon, churros, […]
