Dr. Seuss & the Royal Court

Dr. Seuss & the Royal Court

The Tournament of Roses‘ seven members of the Royal Court of 2013 have been announced. In the next few months, these young women won’t have a moment to breathe, but will hopefully have the time of their lives as they attend over 150 community functions culminating with the 124th Rose Parade, which will be held [...]

Hi, I’m Kat

Hi, I’m Kat

I’m sitting at my computer as the clock strikes 1 a.m. My street is quiet—TVs are turned off, interior lights have been extinguished, and my daughter (her headphones having fallen finally out of her ears) is “passed out,” as she would put it. Our one remaining cat is meowing relentlessly, trying to annoy me enough [...]

Pasadena Art Weekend: It’s That Time

Pasadena Art Weekend: It’s That Time

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are going to be very, very busy. It’s the 7th Annual Pasadena ArtWeekend. 1. ArtNight will have a “kinetic evening of mini-modern dance works” by the Pennington Dance Group, the debut of PAGES! that celebrates the art of the book at the Art Center, and creating art through physics in honor of the [...]

Old Town Haunt

Old Town Haunt

It’s October, so down to the tunnels you go. October 5th is the opening night for Pasadena’s Old Town Haunt. Come follow the trail of the catacombs, the same catacombs where in 1929, as a consequence of a street-widening project, twelve residents were found, deceased, their bodies “hideously torn apart.” The history of this site [...]

A Hollywood Star for Gale Anne Hurd

A Hollywood Star for Gale Anne Hurd

They’re classics: The Terminator, The Abyss, and Aliens. They’re documentaries: True Whispers and The Pirate Code. They’re suspenseful, adventurous, and patriotic: Armageddon. They’re silly: Tremors. They’re zombies (always a crowd pleaser): “The Walking Dead.” They’re sometimes green: The Hulk. “They” have all been produced by Pasadena local Gale Anne Hurd and this Wednesday, October 3rd, she will be receiving [...]

New Owner for Hometown Pasadena

New Owner for Hometown Pasadena

For months now, you’ve been reading posts by Kat Ward and admiring her photographs. Now, I’m happy (and a little sad) to report that as of October 1, I’m handing the reins to Kat for good. Six years ago, I set up a simple site at hometown-pasadena.com to help promote the book my fledgling company [...]

PSHA Gifts & Grants

PSHA Gifts & Grants

Do you know of or are you involved with a non-profit that focuses on “symphonic or classical music, youth music education, (or) music therapy”? If so, could you use some financial support? The Showcase House is accepting applications for its Gifts and Grants program until Friday, October 12th. This past May, Pasadena Showcase House for [...]

Space Shuttle Flyover!

Space Shuttle Flyover!

All of Pasadena was outdoors and looking. At our office, on South Raymond, everyone who could get on a roof was on one. We’re on the second floor, so we had a pretty darn good view of the shuttle coming up to Pasadena from downtown L.A., banking west at the mountains, flying over JPL, and [...]

A Cocktail Finale

A Cocktail Finale

It’s been a long, grueling 6 weeks. Competition has been fierce. Cocktails have been concocted and paired against one another. Seemingly harmless margaritas and sangrias have gone head-to-head. Now, it all comes down to… the live taste-off. Of course, we’re talking about Pasadena’s inaugural SIP-tember: a Celebration of the Cocktail. Sixty-four cocktails entered the arena [...]

Viva Mèxico via the English Beat

Viva Mèxico via the English Beat

Celebrate Mexican Independence Day with…the English Beat? This may seem an odd juxtaposition, but Villa Sorriso, Bar Celona, and ix Tapa Cantina presents this year’s Villa Fest featuring the band who brought us “Mirror in the Bathroom,” “Tears of a Clown,” “Save It For Later,” and “I Confess.” Visiting the English Beat’s website and checking [...]
