Inside the Story

Inside the Story

Developing the creative mind. Appreciating the creative mind. Exploring various and sundry artistic genres. Feeding and satiating one’s curiosity. Get “Inside the Story.” In 2010, sisters Susan Cherney, a former CPA, and Wendy Moss, a retired attorney, came up with the idea of Inside the Story, “a unique venture where culture-loving people meet for programs [...]

Aloha, Bahooka

Aloha, Bahooka

You have three days left to order another serving crab puffs and sip on a Blue Hawaii or share a Scorpion before you have to say your final goodbyes to Rufus, the Pacu. Bahooka Restaurant in Rosemead—”welcoming friends like you since 1967—is closing it’s doors. If Bahooka is an old love of yours, say your [...]

Brown Bagging It

Brown Bagging It

For a while, lunching out was all the rage. We had money in our pockets and without a second thought would leave work and drop a quick twenty at the nearest burger joint, cafe, or taco bar. But the recession jolted many of us out of our overfed food coma. Being financially thoughtful, even frugal, [...]

Pasadena Art Night

Rachel Maddow: Thanks, Vroman’s!

Rachel Maddow: Thanks, Vroman’s!

We first heard her in the days of Air America on AM radio. A part of a liberal line-up throughout the day that informed and reflected the feelings of those of us on the left who were floundering in our anger and despair during eight years of the Bush administration. (For our right wing friends, [...]

Crispy & Tender

Crispy & Tender

Chef Sunny Vohra could finally say that after two years of trying, he’d done it. He and sous-chef Greg Schutt had just heaved a whole pig out of the China box stationed out on the patio of King’s Row Gastropub in Old Pasadena. The 74-pound porker lay splayed out on its platter with score marks all [...]

Govine: Words that Anchor

Govine: Words that Anchor

The human body. Roughly 96 percent of the mass of the human body is made up of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen[1], but attributes like the capacity to imagine[2], allows people the freedom from a single, lone path… Not only is Gerda Govine Ituarte a Doctor of Education, she has a B.S. and M.A. in [...]

It’s About Bloomin’ Time

It’s About Bloomin’ Time

The glories of Southern California—blooming trees and flowers in mid-February while the Upper Mid-West prepares for another snow storm. Not that snow is not a joy in its own way, and we are going to get a taste of winter temps with a low of 41º on Wednesday morning (cuddle up!), but the magnolias are [...]

Roasting the Pig

Roasting the Pig

We’re foregoing cocktail hour on Thursday evening for a little pig. Okay, we’re only delaying cocktails, but it’s all in order to honor and partake of one from the family Suidae, the omnivorous domesticated hoofed mammal descended from the wild boar and domesticated over 8,000 years ago—also commonly known as hog, swine, porker, and pig. We’ll be arriving [...]

Playing on the Aeolian-Skinner

Playing on the Aeolian-Skinner

They have been called “beasts.” They can be bought sometimes for as little as $20,000, only to have to be moved, restored, and installed, jacking the price up several hundreds of thousands of dollars. These “complicated machines” are Aeolian-Skinner organs. For one such organ being moved from Houston to Atlanta, it took a 54-foot flatbed [...]
