(Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, CA) On July 4, 2015, the nation celebrates Independence Day. Colorful displays of fireworks will light up the night skies.  The Cities of Burbank, Glendale, and Pasadena are surrounded by hillsides that are dry due to the lack of rain. The dryness combined with hot temperatures and just a small spark can set the hillsides ablaze which could have devastating outcomes for first responders, homeowners and wild life.

The cities of Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena have a Zero Tolerance enforcement effort for all fireworks.  All personal fireworks, including “safe and sane” variety are illegal in all three cities. We encourage you to leave the fireworks to the professionals and celebrate the Fourth of July by visiting one of these local professional and permitted fireworks shows:

  1. Burbank: Starlight Bowl. 1249 Lockhead View Drive, Burbank, Festivities from 5:30 – 10:00 p.m.

Lagunitas Building 3rd Brewery in Azusa, CA @lagunitasbeer @lagunitasT
 

Lagunitas to build 3rd brewery in Azusa, CA

 

With breweries in Petaluma, CA and Chicago, IL, Lagunitas is building a brewery facility in Azusa, CA. The

This is great news for the local area, and the thriving craft beer market and great news for the local economy, where this facility will surely put people to work.   It is expected to open sometime in 2017.
Measuring close to 200,000 sq ft the space will feature a taproom and event space. This will be the largest brewing facility in LA County!

Is the Southern California market ready for more breweries? The answer is YES. With Golden Road, Angel City Brewing, STONE, and others proving that the market is growing faster than most would expect. Craft Beer is probably growing faster than most other beverage sectors.

Lagunitas is one of my favorite beers, consistent and priced right, and readily available from Trader Joe’s to Costco.

Lagunitas makes several specialty brews but the mainstays are their IPA’s and Ale’s.

You can read more about the Lagunitas Brewery building built in Azusa here.

Tony Magee did an extensive post on the state of beer in the US and worldwide on the beer advocate forum.

Tony, owner and founder of Lagunitas Brewing even wrote a book last year for those interested in what it takes to open a brewery.

I just picked up a bomber of the Wilco, Tango, Foxtrot(WTF) and am looking forward to enjoying it.

1280 N. McDowell Boulevard Petaluma, Calif 94954

TapRoom Menu & Music Schedule

Gotta be 21+ for our tasting tours (or under 2ish). Please bring your ID or passport (or you won’t get a beer).

Remove America’s Name From Processed “American Cheese” @TillamookCheese
 

“AMERICAN CHEESE” IS UN-AMERICAN

 

Sign the White House petition to remove America’s name from processed cheese. If we reach our goal of 100,000 signatures, the White House will respond to this important national issue.

Remove America’s Name From Processed “American Cheese”

We the people of the United States of America are being falsely represented by our namesake “American Cheese”.

With as many as 18 ingredients like sorbic acid and sodium phosphate, the FDA says processed “American Cheese” can’t even be called cheese. Rather it must be referred to as a “cheese product.”

Is that the America our forefathers like Honest Abe Lincoln had in mind?

Out of respect for the hard work and integrity that our nation was built upon, we respectfully ask that these processed, plastic-wrapped slices of deception be stripped of America’s name.

Duke Bakery Opening in Pasadena on South Lake #dukebakery
 

As the trend in bakeries increases, we have another entry into Pasadena, on the every popular South Lake District.

The location is at 167 S. Lake Ave, Pasadena CA  91101, this location was previously occupied by National University.

According to a recent LA Weekly story Duke Bakery was started by a Taiwanese pastry chef and sells artisanal breads that combine European and Japanese influences.

The Arcadia location opened on April 12, and according to one of the co-owners David Chao, plans are in the works for locations in Pasadena, Irvine and downtown L.A.

While work is yet to begin on the location, we imagine that once work begins it will be pretty quick.

David Chan and Rocky G Hung are leasing the location.

Other Duke Bakery locations include:

In China and Singapore and US Locations in

Arcadia and Rowland Heights.

Duke Bakery, 713 W Duarte Rd, Ste E, Arcadia, CA 91007

Alibaba Leases Top Floor 22,000 Sq Ft in Pasadena Playhouse Plaza @alibaba @inpasadena @pasplayhouse
 

 

Alibaba Leases 22,000 Sq Ft in Pasadena Playhouse Plaza

After looking at space on the West Coast, Alibaba decided on Pasadena. This is a major victory for Pasadena’s tech sector.

Alibaba is the largest ecommerce company on the planet.

Alibaba, raised $25 billion in their U.S. IPO.

  • Taobao Marketplace (www.taobao.com), China’s largest online shopping destination
  • Tmall.com (www.tmall.com), China’s largest third-party platform for brands and retailers
  • Juhuasuan (www.juhuasuan.com), China’s most popular online group buying marketplace
  • Alitrip (www.alitrip.com), a leading online travel booking platform
  • AliExpress (www.aliexpress.com), a global online marketplace for consumers to buy directly from China
  • Alibaba.com (www.alibaba.com), China’s largest global online wholesale platform for small businesses
  • 1688.com (www.1688.com), a leading online wholesale marketplace in China
  • Aliyun (www.aliyun.com), a provider of cloud computing services to businesses and entrepreneurs

What Alibaba will use the space for is still not known. Some speculate it could be a combination of different divisions, and perhaps some Yahoo related business.

Shares of Alibaba(BABA) closed at 85.24 today up .07. The stock has been struggling on the NYSE after reaching a high of $120 in November 2014.

BisNow reported on May 1, 2015 that Alibaba was looking at space.

We hope that Alibaba opening offices in Pasadena will lead to exciting new developments with the ever increasing tech community in Pasadena.

Amazon Echo – Computer, controlled entirely by your voice
 

 Today, we are excited to announce that Amazon Echo is available to everyone.

We launched Echo as an invitation-only program in November to learn how customers would use and enjoy it most. The response has been overwhelming.

Amazon Echo
Echo was born from a simple idea: create a computer, controlled entirely by your voice. This idea required some incredible invention. It had to understand natural language requests, from many voices, from across a room, even when music is playing. It also needed to be informative, entertaining, and useful—while always getting smarter.

With seven microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise cancellation, Echo achieved this goal by enabling far-field voice recognition. And Alexa, our cloud-based voice service that powers Echo, provides information, music, news, weather, and more—and she is constantly learning new skills.

Since launch, we have added streaming music from Pandora, audiobooks from Audible, calendar access, live sports scores and schedules, traffic reports, Amazon.com re-ordering, control of connected devices such as lights and switches from WeMo and Philips Hue, and more. Many of these features are a result of feedback and suggestions from our customers—thank you.

I am excited by what the team has done in a short period of time with your help—and we’re just getting started. We hope you enjoy Amazon Echo.

Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

P.S. — See what some of our early customers are saying about Echo.

  •  Information, music, audiobooks, news, weather, traffic, sports, and more–instantly
  • Controlled by your voice for hands-free convenience
  • Far-field voice recognition hears you from across the room
  • Connected to the cloud so it’s always getting smarter
  • 360º omni-directional audio to fill the room with immersive sound
  • Compatible with Belkin WeMo and Philips Hue connected devices to control lights and switches with your voice
  • Plays music from Amazon Music, Prime Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more
