Urbano Mexican Kitchen Opening Pasadena @626food



Urbano Mexican Kitchen in the previous location of Big Daddy’s has changed the configuration of the location. You can see some pictures of the new dining area and bar area.

In the Vons shopping center at California across the street from Huntington Hospital is getting close to opening.

We understand from those in the area that Urbano had a soft opening of sorts on Saturday 1/30/16 for a few hours to work things out.

There’s no official word on the opening, but there are some menus in the works and the offerings look good. There’s beer and wine available at this location.

Nissan Auto Recall Affects Close to 1 Million Autos #nissanfail Third Attempt

As if Nissan didn’t already have enough problems, they are now faced with a recall of 930,000 vehicles for a defective hood latch. The defect could result in the hood unexpectedly opening while driving!

Making it third time Nissan has had a recall to fix this issue and it still not fixed!

So what does this say about Nissan, well if you purchased a Nissan LEAF in 2011 or 2012, and are experiencing battery capacity loss and Nissan refuses to do anything until the loss of the 9th bar, but within the 60,000 miles and 5 year period.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which said on Friday that 846,000 vehicles in the United States would be recalled, has received complaints from owners of Altimas whose hoods unexpectedly opened. Altimas accounted for about 25 percent of Nissan’s U.S. brand sales last year.

Tesla Model 3 Announcement Pre-Ordering Coming in March 2016 #TeslaModel3 @TeslaMotors

Tesla Motors is making the headlines with the upcoming release of the the Tesla Model 3. Priced at $35,000 before federal incentives.

There have been images of the design online, in about a month we should see what it will look like.
This tweet post claims to have captured the Model 3.

What it really looks like will be revealed in March.  Stay tuned for the date and time.  It should be streamed live.


Tesla opened a sales and service center in Burbank this past October.

Tesla has sold approx 100,000 Model S vehicles. EV chargers are key to the success of EV adoption.  With longer range and quicker charge times the demand for long periods of charging will go down, but as adoption grows more EV’s will mean that more EV chargers will be needed. We are seeing another spike in cities where chargers are being installed. Burbank has roadside chargers.
