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 […]

LitFest on the Prowl

From Central Park to the Playhouse District, LitFest 2014 is on the prowl. In Vroman’s courtyard, restaurant critic and Ruth Reichl will chat with L.A.

Dear Santa & Tree Lighting

Dear Santa & Tree Lighting

Just as the Pasadena Jaycees are looking for volunteers to read and sort the letters to Santa, remember that kids have to write to Santa! The stipulations are as follows: the letter must be legible (good luck) and in the child’s own words (no coaching). Letters should be mailed to Santa Claus who currently resides […]

LitFest Pasadena Fundraiser #2

LitFest Pasadena Fundraiser #2

We covered LitFest Pasadena’s first fundraiser way back in October. Round two is set for this Sunday, and should be a decidedly less racy affair: school kids singing and acting (including a bit from Hamlet, rumor has it) instead of poetry and naked people. It’s happening at the Mountain View Mausoleum, a stunning locale. We could […]

LitFest Pasadena 2012 – Launching From Castle Green

Last Thursday saw a fundraising soiree to kick off LitFest Pasadena, a literary festival coming to Pasadena next St. Patrick’s Day. Attendance (and funds received) exceeded the organizers’ hopes, and enthusiasm for the day-long, family-friendly, book-loving festival ran very high indeed. Here are a few photos from the Castle Green happening. Gallery Girl founder Jennifer […]

The End of the End of the World

The End of the End of the World

We’re so sad to hear of the closing of Ben McGinty’s beloved Gallery at the End of the World, way up high on Lake in Altadena. But we understand. We’ve been waiting for two decades for that neighborhood to take off. Where’s the Trader Joe’s it should have? Where’s the wine bar? Where are the […]

Frank Lloyd Wright: Big in Japan

Frank Lloyd Wright: Big in Japan

As our regular readers are no doubt already aware, Frank Lloyd Wright’s La Miniatura (aka the Millard house), up in Prospect Park, is for sale. As you can see in that post, it’s a beautiful, beautiful house, the first of Wright’s experiments with so-called “Mayan-block construction.” Even after the asking price fell over $2.7 million […]

Oh, What a House!

Oh, What a House!

It’s home-and-garden tour season in the San Gabriel Valley, and we’re all peeking into vast mansions, classic family homes and precious bungalows to see how people with good taste remodel, paint, decorate and landscape. But to see the beauty of a truly great Pasadena home stripped bare of ornamentation, check out the website for the Hindry […]
