Levitt's Free Concert Season Underway

Levitt's Free Concert Season Underway

Dang, somehow the summer season of free concerts at Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena has started already, and we missed the first week! Fortunately, there’s so much more to come. This annual concert series is one of the best perks of San Gabriel Valley living. Residents gather on the lawns at Memorial Park with picnics, performers [...]

Skies across the San Gabriel Valley will be full of color on Saturday night; here’s a roster of the most notable shows.

Dogs of the Arroyo, Part 2

Dogs of the Arroyo, Part 2

Our last photo-heavy post on dogs of the lower Arroyo Seco walking paths was such a hit that we’re back with more of our favorite dogs. We couldn’t catch up with the two Airedales, the two Goldens and the gorgeous Boxer — we’ll find them for another post. Here’s some of last Wednesday morning’s crew.

Cal Phil Season Opens

Cal Phil Season Opens

Summertime means more than just flowers at the L.A. County Arboretum — it means it’s time for concerts under the stars, preferably with a good picnic dinner first. The California Philharmonic kicks off its summer season this Saturday with a concert at the Arboretum called “By George,” featuring works by George Gershwin, George Handel and [...]

Murder Charged in Flintridge Bookstore Crash

Murder Charged in Flintridge Bookstore Crash

The Mercury News (in Silicon Valley, no less, not a SoCal paper), via Associated Press, reports that long-haul trucker Marcos Barbosa Costa was rearrested on Friday and charged with murder. He had originally been charged with vehicular manslaughter and was out on bail; he’s now back in jail with a much larger bail. On April [...]

Rare Corpse Flower in Bloom

Rare Corpse Flower in Bloom

Editor’s note, 6/23: The Pasadena Star-News reports that the Corpse Flower, aka Son of Stinky, keeled over dead yesterday, so if you didn’t get to the Huntington already, you’ve missed your chance. There is, however, hope for Son of Son of Stinky in a few years….. Breaking news from San Marino: The very rare Amorphophallus [...]

Dogs of the Arroyo

Dogs of the Arroyo

If you live within a five-mile radius of the south Arroyo Seco and you don’t walk there regularly, shame on you. And if you have a dog, double dog shame on you. It is green and gold and shady, with streams and red-tailed hawks and jackrabbits. There’s room enough for joggers and equestrians and dog-walkers, [...]

Backyard Bear at Lake & Elizabeth

Backyard Bear at Lake & Elizabeth

A small (200-pound) black bear was found in a backyard pecan tree, apparently having a little lunch, on Elizabeth Street near Lake yesterday — quite a ways from the Altadena wilds. Fish & Game staffers, who named her “Dusty,” were able to sedate her, get her out safely, and take her back to the foothills. [...]

Fête de la Musique, Pasadena Style

Fête de la Musique, Pasadena Style

My family was fortunate enough to have spent a few summers traveling in rural France several years ago, and we ended up at several Fêtes de la Musique, which typically took place around the summer solstice in a small village in the middle of nowhere. Musicians from all over the region performed, as did local [...]
