Community Kitchen Pasadena Closed Sold @626food #eatckp
 

Last week when Community Kitchen appeared to be closed during what was posted open hours, we learned that the business was sold. No word on what the future holds, but hopefully the new owner will keep it going and grow the business.

Reports by some not having the best experience.  With wait times for food being the most common complaint.     The food was good.

No word on the new owner or if there are plans for a name change.

Here’s the instgram post from the original owners.

Verizon 5G Coming Oct 1 to Los Angeles
 

Starting Sept 13, 2018 you can see if Verizon’s new 5G service is available at your home.

5G Home is based on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband Network.  Which according to reports is not true 5G.

I appears that Verizon is trying to beat AT&T wiith the launch. Service will be available for $50 per month.  Speeds claims are 300Mpbs to 1Gig and there are no data caps.

Verizon is clearly going after cable companies like Spectrum and Cox, but also AT&T in the ongoing quest by consumer to get faster services.  AT&T is slow to roll out its fiber network to the home.  Apparently stalling in neighborhoods.  Watching crews come and go and sidewalks being torn up and services still not available months later.

It will be interesting to see where in Los Angeles the service will be available, most likely the actually City of Los Angeles will be primarily served.  Not surrounding cities and suburbs.

Verizon is betting a lot on this first generation of 5G services.

Starting Sept 13, you can go online to FirstOn5G.com

Learn more about Verizon 5G here

With Apple announcements coming on Sept 12, there could be something announced to coincide.  Perhaps making Verizon and Apple closer.

Where to get the best CD and Money Market Savings Interest Rates?
 

Are you looking to get the maximum return on your money with FDIC insurance?

There are several online resources that track the rates offered by both online and retail location banks.

Some of the best rates are now being offered as interest rates have been ticking up and the Federal Reserve has increased the rate at which banks can borrow money, so the upside is that you as a consumer can put your money with a bank and earn a return that has not been seen in years.

Shoppers should pay special attention to penalties and terms.  In many cases some banks will automatically renew your term at the current rate, you have to pay attention.  Some banks impose penalties of six months interest and it doesn’t matter when you end the term.  There are some banks that allow for a term upgrade, so if there is a better rate, you can get the better rate, but that may only be a one time.

Popular Direct is currently offering 2% interest on savings and 2.95% on a 24mo CD. These rates for these terms are hard to beat, but we expect with the anticipated increases in the Fed rate that they could tick up higher and then as the market corrects and cools, the rates could come down. So a strategy employed by some is to ladder your cd investments.  Taking advantage of the longer term 3% APY being offered locking.

Synchrony and CIT are some of the others offering competitive rates.

Locally Union Bank with branches throughout Los Angeles is offering a 2.75%APY for a 13-23MO cd, but be aware that the rates for other terms are comparable if not lower than national banks.

Abricott Pasadena Closes – Mendocino Farms Takes Over Space @MendocinoFarms @626food #MENDOEATHAPPY
 

After 6 years on South Lake in Pasdaena, Abricott has closed its doors as of July 1.  A local favorite known for Vietnamesse cuisine.

It is sad to see the closing of Abricott. Fig Sprout and Daisy Mint owned by the same couple who owned Abricott remains open.

We do know that there have been several closings on South Lake, most appear to be related to the rents going up at astonishing rates.

One can only wonder how the places that remain are able to stay in business, and we hope that Mendocino Farms can make a run at making the location work.  Mendocino Farms Pasadena is expected to open in the next several months.  With locations throughout southern California, Studio City and Pasadena will bring to 13 the number of locations in the local area.  Other locations planned include Carlsbad, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Ramon, and Houston.

Pasadena Updates Fireworks Ordinance And Reinforces All Fireworks Are Illegal In Pasadena – 1 Year in Jail and $50,000 Fine @pasadenagov #fireworks #fireworksfines #illegalfirework
 

Before you decide to light fireworks in Pasadena, CA:
Pasadena has one of the highest fines. Most other cities are $1000. How does Pasadena get the word out that illegal fireworks are not tolerated? Perhaps undercover enforcement is the best approach? At $50k per infraction, it should be a deterrent, but so far it seems that the amount if illegal fireworks are the same as previous years coming from the same neighborhoods.

Has the City of Pasadena changed the code to prosecute those who are guilty?

It does not appear that the Municipal Code has been updated to include the updated possible fines.

Pasadena Updates Fireworks Ordinance And Reinforces All Fireworks Are Illegal In Pasadena

PASADENA, Calif.— The City of Pasadena recently amended the municipal code holding property owners and tenants responsible for permitting the possession, sale, usage or discharge of fireworks on their property. The ordinance change allows for the prosecution of fireworks-related offenses and for the demand of of payment for all costs associated with the safe disposal of confiscated fireworks. The City maintains a zero tolerance enforcement policy for fireworks and Pasadena’s police and firefighters are teaming up for special fireworks enforcement patrols before and during the Fourth of July holiday. Violators are subject to arrest; having their vehicles impounded; and serving up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000.

Statistics show that fireworks are among the most dangerous of all consumer products. Even hand-held sparklers, which many consider safe, are dangerous and can reach 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, causing serious burns or fires. National Fire Protection Association statistics reveal that 90 percent of all fireworks-related injuries are caused by so-called “safe and sane” fireworks which are illegal in Pasadena.

Help keep all of us, our children, our homes and our property safe from illegal fireworks. If You See Something, Say Something! Call Pasadena Police at (626) 744-4241 to report illegal fireworks and other suspicious activities. Residents may also use the City’s smart phone app, available at www.cityofpasadena.net/csc to report illegal fireworks.

The City of Pasadena invites you to celebrate the Fourth of July responsibly and join us for the 92nd annual “Americafest,” one of the best family-friendly celebrations and professional fireworks shows in Southern California at the Rose Bowl Stadium. For ticket and event information, please visit www.rosebowlstadium.com.

Due to the potential for fire hazards and injuries, Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the stadium to search for and seize any fireworks. Parking enforcement officers will ensure that vehicles illegally parked in Pasadena’s hillside areas on July 4th are impounded.

The Pasadena Fire Department will be applying Phos-Chek on Monday, July 2nd to brush areas around the Arroyo area. The main ingredients of this fire retardant are phosphates and fertilizers to help prevent plants from burning and to re-vegetate burned wildland areas.

Pasadena’s Fire Chief Bertral Washington, Interim Police Chief John Perez and Public Health Officer Dr. Ying-Ying Goh urge everyone to make safety their top priority and offer the following reminders:

Celebrate responsibly and always designate a driver.
Stay hydrated, drink water or other nutritious fluids before becoming thirsty; limit alcohol & sugary drinks.
If outdoors, remember to use sunscreen, wear a brimmed hat and seek shade, if needed.
Fight the Bite, use bug spray/repellant to protect against mosquitoes.
Many areas of the City, including outdoor areas, are designated as “No Smoking” zones. Smoking anything in “No Smoking” areas is strictly prohibited. Always make sure that whatever you smoke in an official smoking area is fully extinguished before disposing in an appropriate trash container.
Always have someone tending the barbecue and watching the swimming pool when in use.
Call 9-1-1 for all life-threatening emergencies.
Call (626) 744-4241 for all other public safety needs.
When calling for help, speak calmly, give accurate location information.
