The weekend was full of things to do around Pasadena that were connected to the many
cultures of Pasadena, especially of the Latino persuasion.
Some were filled with opportunities to chum around and taste away with friends like Abel Ramirez and Sandy Burton Greenstein. El Portal's Tequila Tasting was a lot of fun.
Or to wander down the street - in the alley by Zona Rosa where a last summer concert took place, where elegance of the papel picado in the breeze was only rivaled by the elegance of Cava and the music they shared through the night.
Or a chance to spend time looking at cars as old as I am but who have fewer dents and whose paint is all elegance, grace with just the right touch of glitter.
Thanks to Luis Villa, of Nokturnal Car Club, who invited me to the Car Show at the Rose Bowl on Sunday. This stunner belonged to Izzy.
Culture, cultura, however you say it, we live in a place that is almost dripping with opportunities to eat, drink, laugh, or stare in awe, all throughout the town.
