Welcome to Pasadena, Where Everything Is Perfect

Welcome to Pasadena, Where Everything Is Perfect

I live in Dallas now, but until October 15, 2014, and for thirty-two years before that, I lived in Pasadena. To confess that I miss Pasadena is such an understatement that I may as well not even enter the confessional. It is like saying “I like dessert” when the reality is that I would live […]

Elegy for John Bogert

Elegy for John Bogert

This is a piece I never wanted to write. My dear friend John Bogert succumbed to cancer on July 29, 2012. He was 63, a longtime newspaper columnist, a Pasadena resident, and a devoted dad to his three darlings, Caitlin, Rachael, and Ian. I was a latecomer to his life, having met him in 2010. Back […]

Wowza! Take a Look at Trattoria Neapolis

Wowza! Take a Look at Trattoria Neapolis

Thanks to LA Eater for this report on Trattoria Neapolis, a dazzling new restaurant coming to South Lake. Will this be the game-changer South Lake so desperately needs? Discuss. Here’s the scoop from LA Eater: Perry Vidalakis spent 10 years conceptualizing Trattoria Neapolis, traveling around the country and to Italy for inspiration.

Gastropub vs. Ale House: Self-identification Is Tricky

Gastropub vs. Ale House: Self-identification Is Tricky

This time […]
