Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez Retiring April 18, 2018 @PPDChiefSanchez @PasadenaPD
NEWS RELEASE: A Message from Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez

NEWS RELEASE A MESSAGE FROM PASADENA POLICE CHIEF PHILLIP L. SANCHEZ This afternoon, I informed Pasadena City Manager Steve Mermell that I will be retiring from my position as the Chief of Police, effective April 18th, 2018. The decision to step away from serving my community is a difficult one which took much deliberation and careful thought. For the past eight years I have had the honor of leading one of the nation’s finest law enforcement agencies, comprised of heroic men and women who serve with distinction in keeping our city safe. Putting on the Pasadena Police Uniform everyday has truly been a humbling experience. I am proud of the progress we have made as an agency during my tenure. We implemented various new technologies into our policing abilities including the Body Worn Camera program and enhanced community outreach with the Community Police Academy in both English and Spanish. We have increased the diversity of the Police Department to reflect the community it serves, all the while enhancing our responses to terror threats at large events, while working hard to deliver exceptional police service. My wife, Deborah, and I are blessed to have a large family and after a 38 year career in law enforcement, I look forward to spending time with all of them in the years ahead. I want to offer my sincere thanks to Mayors Bill Bogaard and Terry Tornek; to the members of the Pasadena City Council, to City Managers Michael Beck and Steve Mermell; and most of all, to the outstanding men and women of the Pasadena Police Department who will continue to serve this city with honor and humility. Thank you for allowing me to serve the City of Pasadena.

“An Afternoon of Great Wines – A Family Tradition!”

Pasadena Convention Center

Pasadena, CA 91101

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Consumer Tickets from 2-5pm: $75.00

All Access Tickets from 12-5pm: $95 (includes iSip Lounge)

Your Consumer Ticket includes: Unlimited access to approximately 125 wineries from 50+ California appellations pouring over 35 varietals and over 500 different wines; commemorative wine glass; a great variety of cheeses, breads and crackers. Wine orders may be placed at this tasting, to be shipped from the winery. Many wineries will be offering special pricing on shipping and/or select wines. No wine may leave the building since state law and ABC rules prohibit free gifts of alcohol.

One thread weaves through this tasting — a desire to bring you the best wines. This tasting is about the breadth of wineries from across the state, an enormous range of varietals, and wine growing appellations from all over the state. All Family Winemakers tastings focus on wineries that are small (generally under 5000 cases), have limited marketing outreach, and will be represented by family members. There will be wineries at this event pouring with Family Winemakers for the first time. It’s an opportunity to expand your palate. You can sample new releases from your classic favorites and from wineries just selling their first vintages. CHECK out varietals you’ve never heard of or your best-loved Cabs and Chardonnays. This well-respected tasting is a once-a-year opportunity to tour and taste California’s wine country under one place.

For those that have not participated in a wine tasting of this size, we have developed some Helpful Hints (Click on the link to DOWNLOAD our Consumer guide to wine tastings).

Contact us:, (415) 705-0646

Participant expressly grants the promoter and its licensees to use holder’s image or likeness in connection with any live or recorded transmission or reproduction of such event, and the right to send you emails about subsequent tastings.

Derive Restaurant Opens in Place of Racion Restaurant Pasadena @626food
As you may have heard, we have decided to close Racion Restaurant. Since first opening Racion six years ago, we have done our best to serve high quality foods in the Spanish Basque tradition and enjoyed both great success and the satisfaction that comes with doing what we love! However, we are ready for a new challenge exploring new cuisines, flavors, and techniques. As a result, we have been remodeling the space to accommodate a new project we are excited to share – Dérive Restaurant! Dérive is an ingredient-driven, New American neighborhood restaurant supporting small organic farmers and wineries.
Our team, including fellow Chef Shane Alvord and Restaurateur Loretta Peng, will remain the same, as will our commitment to quality and a high level of service. We are now open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week 11:30am-10pm, and eventually for breakfast as well.
As a gesture of our gratitude, we are pleased to offer our loyal customers a 10% discount off of their bill when they visit Dérive Restaurant. This offer is good for two months, until April 1, 2018. Just mention the words “Friends and Family” to your server upon arrival and the discount will be applied to your bill.

Watch Live at 3:45pm ET: Falcon Heavy Test Launch @SpaceX #FalconHeavy

Watch Live at 3:45pm ET: Falcon Heavy Test Launch


SpaceX is targeting launch of the Falcon Heavy Test Flight today, February 6th, 2018, at 3:45pm ET from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

When Falcon Heavy lifts off, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two, with the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)—a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel.

Falcon Heavy’s first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit.

You can watch the test flight and a simulation of what we hope happens during flight at

Original Twohey’s Restaurant Moves to New South Pasadena Location in Spring 2018! @Twoheys #626food

Original Twohey’s Restaurant Moves to New South Pasadena Location in Spring 2018!

 Home of The Little Stinko Continues to Serve up Memories:

Original Twohey’s Restaurant Moves to New South Pasadena Location in Spring 2018!

Twohey's Restaurant - New Location - Spring 2018.jpeg

 (Alhambra, CA), Thursday, January 25, 2018:  After 75 years of serving up family-friendly American Fare, including their famous burgers, onion rings, award-winning soda fountain and hot fudge sundaes, the iconic original Twohey’s Restaurant will be moving to South Pasadena in Spring 2018!

Twohey’s Restaurant originally opened in Pasadena in 1943, and then moved a decade later to its present location at the intersection of Huntington Drive and Atlantic Boulevard in Alhambra. After negotiations to renew their lease over the past several years was unsuccessful, the original Twohey’s Restaurant has found a new home and is relocating to neighboring city South Pasadena. “We have been unable to reach a new lease agreement at our Alhambra location. However, we are able to stay on month-to-month to keep our staff employed and serve our customers during our transition to the new location in South Pasadena. We are deeply saddened to move from Alhambra and are grateful for the support from the community throughout the years. The tremendous outpouring of love and loyalty during this time has been overwhelming, with legions of friends, family, and guests sharing their unique stories of what Twohey’s Restaurant has meant to them. Though, it is bittersweet, we are excited for this new chapter and to continue the Twohey’s Restaurant legacy in South Pasadena,” states Jim Christos.

Twohey’s Restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, and every Friday and Saturday from 7:00 am to 12:00 midnight. For more information, please visit or call Twohey’s Restaurant at 626.284.7387 directly.

Twohey’s Restaurant South Pasadena will be located at 424 Fair Oaks Avenue, South Pasadena CA, 91030. For future updates on the opening, please visit

Ed: The new location of Twohey’s was previously occupied by various restaurants, most notably Tommy Lasorda’s restaurant venture Carmine’s.  Other occupants included Craft Hill and Sow House. Carmine’s closed in 2015.  Sow House closed in 2016. Craft Hill closed in 2017. Craft Hill has another location in West Covina.
