Coming soon to Old Pasadena is the Crack Shack. In what was an old firehouse and then most recently a recording studio. Is now being transformed into an eatery. Expected opening Fall 2018.
CEO Michael Rosen and celebrity-chef Richard Blais have translated their bold and brazen vision through a culmination of a meticulously prepared menu and our “crack spice” – a proprietary blend of spices that gives our fare a certain je ne sais ‘squawk’ for sumptuous delight.
The Crack Shack, 30 West Green Street, Pasadena, CA

The 2018 Parade takes place on Sunday, November 18th, stepping off at 11:00 am in East Pasadena along Colorado Boulevard, the original Route 66.
Sign Up to Enter and be in the 41st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade! Sunday, November 18th. You can sign up online now via the website, see 'TICKETS.' Check it out, or watch your mailbox and forms enclosed here 🙂 https://t.co/d0vu9tNPUYpic.twitter.com/0ehrJ9R68Y
On Doo Dah day, dozens of inventive, if zany, art cars and floats will accompany a legion of revelers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena’s shady tree-lined streets with a memorable cast of local eccentrics, disruptors, pundits, mutant art cars, lone wolves, steam punks, makers and merrymakers.
Entries are open to everyone. Stay tuned for a list of this year’s lineups.
Yes, another Doo Dah is here to help you forget your humdrum existence!
Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicants across the country was even highlighted in last year’s Wall Street Journal. It was also named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was recently featured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die. To recount the fascinating and confusing history of Pasadena Doo Dah Parade since 1978, please visit our website’s ARCHIVES page. Anyone wishing to participate, visit our website or call!
Update: According to a twitter posting, the Pasadena location of Millie’s Cafe is opening by the end of the month.
As many of you are aware community kitchen closed after the owners sold the business there is now a sign on the window indicating that there is a new owner and that there will be opening soon this is good news for our community to see the location being kept open as a restaurant we look forward to seeing what the new owners will deal with this location.
1399 E Washington Blvd Pasadena, CA 91104
As you can see the sign on the window shows that the location is opening soon Millies of Silverlake home of good food since 1926 www.MilliesCafeLA.com is the website.
The menu looks amazing, This will surely be a full table service place. The lines will be long for sure. As the breakfast scene in the area really comes together with some very respectable options.
From their webste:
Millie’s Cafe is Silverlake’s home for good cooking.
Since 1926 Millie’s remains committed to offering the best ingredients prepared by people who actually care.
We use real butter to cook our fresh eggs. We use Altadena dairy products because they don’t give their cows that hormone crap. We don’t even like yellow dye in our cheese, so we get white cheddar. We fresh grind each pot of French roast coffee. Our bread is baked fresh daily. Our juices are fresh from Odwalla.
We do everything the pain in the ass, Old-fashioned way, by hand, from scratch, because there is a difference.
This is happening by the end of this month. Millie's Cafe Silverlake will have a sister in Pasadena!
The banner is hanging on the soon to be open Donut Bar Pasadena location. Besides donuts Donut Bar is known for wine and beer offerings.

The Pasadena Police Foundation is hosting its annual breakfast with Pasadena’s Interim Chief of Police, John E. Perez at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018 at the First Church of the Nazarene of Pasadena, 3700 East Sierra Madre Blvd.
The event is intended to give residents, members of the business and non-profit community, and friends an opportunity to meet with Interim Chief Perez and hear about the current goals and accomplishments of the Pasadena Police Department (PPD). The Police Foundation’s Annual Breakfast is also an opportunity to see first-hand how the Foundation fulfills its mission to support the planning, development, and implementation of programs and activities of the Department and vital programs such as, the Kids Safety Academy, the Junior Public Safety Academy, the Explorer Program, the Police K-9 Unit and resources to enhance community safety.
Last year the breakfast raised money to fund multiple youth-based community programs and purchase a narcotics search K-9 named Chase. Since Chase’s arrival in 2017, he has recovered narcotics and cash in excess of one million dollars. We also honored Officer Darrin Craddolph with the 2017 Myron Yanish Officer of the Year Award for his impressive community outreach, and Jennifer Mendez with the Bernard K. Melekian Outstanding Youth Award for her efforts toward a career in law enforcement.
This year we are raising funds for the purchase of a van to support the PPD Police Explorer program. This van will provide transportation for the Explorers to various activities and events, including assisting law enforcement at multiple large-scale City events. The Explorer program is for youth ages 14-21 and provides an environment for youth and young adults to work with officers, build life skills and self-reliance, and the possibility of a career in law enforcement. The Pasadena Police Explorer program currently has over 40 young people who are active in civic engagement, public service, and leadership roles within the community.
Live Auction Items:
Ride-along in Pasadena Police Patrol car
Lunch with a K-9 and their Officer
Ride-along in Pasadena Police Helicopter
Tour of the Rose Bowl and Tickets to a UCLA game
Tickets to the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade
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.
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.
