Del Frisco's Grille

Taking the classic bar and grill to new heights, Del Frisco’s Grille draws inspiration from bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients.

The 7,400 sq ft location at 55 S. Lake Ave, Pasadena is currently being renovated.

delfriscoPasadena

There had been rumors of a Flemings Steak House on South Lake, but perhaps Del Frisco took the opportunity to enter this market first. Del Frisco’s has California locations in Santa Monica and Irvine, and several others around the country at major metro locations, with four in Texas.

There have been a number of positions posted for the new Pasadena, CA location including Executive Chef and General Manager.

Here’s a story about the Del Frisco chain of restaurants that is estimated to be expanding, including mention of the Pasadena, CA location.  We are looking forward to the new location.

They have a rough brown exterior but a deep orangey red flesh that is decadently sweet and satisfying. Mamey fruit is completely fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium free and makes an excellent addition to smoothies, puddings, pies, fruit salads, and ice creams. It is often said that mamey tastes just like pumpkin pie in terms of its flavor and texture. When in season, mamey can be found in the tropical fruit section of most supermarkets, as well as in speciality caribbean and mexican food stores. They can also be found online and through mail order or at farmer’s markets in southern Florida, Texas, California , & Hawaii. Mamey is a fruit treasure with wonderful health properties that should not be missed.

Pasadena Shooting Incident Information From Pasadena Police Chief Sanchez #pasadena
 

Here is a statement from Police Chief Sanchez with some information about the incident.

Dear Community Members and Department Personnel:
On Saturday, July 12, 2014, at about 4:20 p.m. the Pasadena Police Department received several 9-1-1 calls from residents reporting shots fired in the 1700 block of Summit Avenue. On arrival, the initial officer observed a victim down on the sidewalk and attempted to render aid when he came under heavy and sustained gunfire from the suspect. Following the killing of the victims and the brazen attack on the officer, the suspect barricaded himself in a home on Summit Avenue. Pasadena Police officers quickly contained the area.
During the standoff, the suspect, JOHN IZEAL SMITH, Black Male, 40’s, called the police department’s communication center and spoke with an Emergency Services Operator. The suspect later surrendered to Pasadena SWAT officers without further incident after an tense dialogue with the operator. Through the nearly hour-long ordeal, Pasadena Police officers never returned gunfire at the suspect. In the end, five victims were shot. Three were murdered and two received moderate injuries. SMITH was transported to the Pasadena jail and booked for several felony charges including murder.
Pasadena Police detectives responded to the incident and started their investigation. The Los Angeles county District Attorney’s Office, Crimes Against Police Officers (CAPO) also responded to assist with our investigation.
The shooting on Summit Avenue was an isolated, tragic and horrific incident. The suspect willfully murdered and injured innocent people without warning as he fired more than 40 rounds from a semi-automatic rifle. However, the courage of our dispatchers, police officers, fire fighters and community members who valiantly tried to help the victims is impressive and speaks to resolve of our community. Please take a moment to say a prayer for everyone impacted by this senseless crime.
Sincerely,
Phillip L. Sanchez, Chief of Police
Pasadena Police Department
207 N. Garfield Ave., Pasadena, CA 91101

Tubefilter Presents Uncompromised Creativity: The New Way to Work with Brands

The New Way to Work with Brands

Uncompromised Creativity—
The New Way to Work with Brands
Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at Busby’s East

Early Bird Tickets WILL SELL OUT so get your tickets now!

The relationship between creators and fans is practically sacrosanct.

Authentic audience engagement now plays an absolutely critical role in the success of any show or channel, and creators shy away from anything that may threaten that special relationship.

This hesitation has made it challenging for brands to work with online personalities. But let’s face it, YouTube revshare is simply not enough to sustain an online video business.

Our past Tubefilter Meetups have explored new ways for creators to build their businesses, whether with new platforms, merchandising, paid subscriptions, or mobile video.

Now, with our latest Tubefilter Meetup, we’ve arrived at “branded content.”

This may still sound like a bad word now, but things are changing—big time. As consumers become savvier, they need more authentic and relatable content from brands.

We’ll be sitting down with brands and creators alike to discuss how successful projects are embracing creative freedom. Brands and causes are tapping into a new creative workforce, and this is changing the landscape of content creation for the better.

Join us, and learn how you don’t need a million YouTube subscribers to work with a major brand on campaigns that resonate with audiences.

Canada’s independent music landscape is doing amazingly well. Adventure Club, a Montreal-based Electronic dance music duo is doing fantastic things. They have put great efforts in order to grow and propel their independent career. One of the things quickly established is the group’s desire to control and preserve their creativity. However, they maintain they do not mind some friendly advice from other labels, what gets them off is complying with an executive’s dictation on their ideas. Independence also allows them to communicate effectively with their fans. In addition, this allows them to pitch ideas and get feedback from cherished fans.

Since the birth of Adventure Club, they always looked forward to playing at Coachella. This dream coming true was a real taste of success. One of the biggest achievements was closing out the Sahara tent for two weekends and having fans sing along to their songs. Their main aim is not simply release a lot of music, but to pride in putting exerted effort to create beautiful pieces that will impress fans. Since the indie scene is massive in Canada, this helps them sell their music and gives people a chance to sample their unique and vibrant sound.

Over time, Adventure Club’s sound had greatly changed, from dirty bass to liquid beautiful music. They continue to experiment with various sounds and genres to bring out that excellent taste in music. TuneCore is excellent because their fans have a reliable alternative to enable them access their music. This also led to astronomical growth of their fan base. In addition, the fans are willing to support them and this keeps the fire burning. Some challenges they go through is the saturation of the internet with new music. This requires a great deal of time and dedication in order to remain relevant and successful on the global scene. Currently, Adventure Club is producing new music due to be out in about 3 month’s time. They are also getting ready for a massive and thrilling tour, to be announced soon.
