A Night at the Mausoleum

A Night at the Mausoleum

And now for something completely different. That mantra seems to be the driving force behind Jonathan Josephson, Paul Millet, and Jeff Rack of Unbound Productions. This past May, they presented History Lit, which was short stories by three women authors that were condensed and adapted into short plays. Fascinatingly, the audience walked with, followed, stood or [...]

Black Bears in the Backyard

A Black Bear chillin’ in your swimming pool or helping themselves to a snack from your fruit trees? You may be surprised to know that their lineage goes back almost 100 years.

Come to a Bridge Party

Come to a Bridge Party

No, not bridge as in the ever-popular, but rather mysterious card game (for those of us growing up in the second half of the 20th century), but as in the Colorado Street Bridge. This birthday party, to celebrate 35 years of Pasadena Heritage, will be held Saturday, July 14th with the Pasadena Scottish Pipes and Drums acting [...]
