Most people know that when it comes to Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley—the woman sitting at the next table eating an arepa at Amara Chocolate, the man enjoying a Hangar 24 at the Alehouse in Altadena, the dude driving the restored 1965 Mustang convertible who’s tires are screeching as he navigates the Avenue 60 northbound offramp on the 110, […]
