Oprah Winfrey surprises guests at Pasadena restaurant

They thought it was just going to be a winter harvest community dinner hosted by True Food Kitchen in Pasadena, featuring produce from investor Oprah Winfrey’s farm. Before they could sit down for the four-course meal, the 45 guests who had signed up for the event quickly learned the real treat of the night as Winfrey herself walked in from an adjoining room. “Special investor,” Winfrey said in her iconic tone, “having dinner with you.” Oprah Winfrey speaks during the Winter Harvest Communit...

Feds rush Whittier Narrows Dam fix to prevent breach that would flood 1M residents from Pico Rivera to Long Beach

Because of the potential of massive flooding, the Army Corps of Engineers is rushing to begin a $500-million repair project for Whittier Narrows Dam, classified as the highest priority of any of the 13 “high risk” dams in the country. Nearly three years ago, the Army Corps of Engineers elevated the risk of failure from “high urgency” to “very high urgency” after a re-inspection revealed a greater threat of erosion and breach that would cause massive downstream flooding to one million Southern Ca...

Blaze Pizza is testing a larger-sized pizza at a single Pasadena location

Individual pan pizzas are great, but they’re not always large enough to successfully share with more than a friend.

Best Chinese food in Los Angeles

For many, Los Angeles ends at the river. But if you stop there, you fall short of exploring one of the best Chinatowns in America. The San Gabriel Valley in East LA is known for strip malls, but not the soulless type of strip mall devoid of culture you’d find most everywhere else in the country. Drive down Valley Boulevard and you’ll see that it’s an artery that connects the hundreds of Chinese restaurants in the cities of Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead. These strip malls...

Casbah Robert Piguet: The Ancient City

  In its original meaning, the Arabic word Kasbah (قصبة) meant a citadel, a fortress inside the city. Sometimes they stood inside the city, like the Saladin Casbah in Cairo or the Spanish Alcazaba in the Alhambra complex, and sometimes they were fortresses in the desert, strongholds of protection against raids. In Serbian, Turkish, and Urdu, kasaba means a small provincial town, and in Yem... Read full article: Casbah Robert Piguet: The Ancient City from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magaz...

Sierra Club members, friends remember activist David Czamanske, dead at 80

Often when a prominent person dies, friends say as a reflex that person will be missed or their  shoes will be hard to fill. The sudden passing of Sierra Club activist David Czamanske of South Pasadena left gaping holes in major aspects of the Angeles Chapter spanning Los Angeles and Orange counties in programming, conservation, political action, group hikes and fundraising — making the truism more than a platitude.

Canelo vs. Golovkin III tops 2019 boxing wish list

If there is any justice in boxing – and there often is not – Canelo Alvarez will agree to a third fight with Gennady Golovkin sooner rather than later. That tops our wish list of bouts we’d like to see in 2019. The other three would be Deontay Wilder taking on fellow heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, a lightweight title-unification bout between Mikey Garcia and Vasiliy Lomachenko and a welterweight title-unification scrap between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. Golovkin has a split draw...

Postal Service center substitutes as modern-day Santa’s workshop

It may not be Santa’s workshop, but it’s a pretty close approximation. On afternoons like Wednesday — at least afternoons in the midst of the holiday season — the U.S. Postal Service’s Processing and Distribution Center in the City of Industry is filled with people working in synchronization to ensure gifts get into the right hands on time. Only instead of elves cobbling them together, it’s postal workers sorting packages and prepping them to head across country and oceans. While the Postal Serv...

The 710 Freeway north extension project is dead. These 2 bills will bury it

Two lawmakers introduced bills on Monday that will remove the 710 Freeway northerly extension project from the state’s Streets and Highways Code, a place it has occupied for six decades. By removing the reference to a 4.5-mile extension of the Long Beach Freeway from Valley Boulevard in Alhambra through South Pasadena and Pasadena to the 210 Freeway, the lawmakers will have put a stake through the heart of one of the most controversial freeway projects ever proposed in the history of Los Angeles...
