Food for Thought

If you live in the San Gabriel Valley, you may want to check out these upcoming events.

March 6:
Learn about Access to Impact: Using Open Government to Create Change at the Neighborhood Church (301 N. Orange Grove Blvd., Pasadena) from 8:30 am to noon. Sponsored by the League of Women Voters. Refreshments and free parking. To RSVP for this free event, contact lwvpasocialpolicy@gmail.com or 626.798.0965.



March 13 and 14: It's Sukiyaki Saturday and Sunday at the Pasadena Buddhist Church (1993 Glen Ave., Pasadena). Dine in (4:00 to 7:30 pm) or take out (4:00 to 6:00 pm) a flavorful beef sukiyaki dinner for just $10. The sukiyaki sauce simmers for days, creating a deep, rich sauce that's nearly impossible to duplicate at home. To reserve meal tickets for this fund raiser, call 626.398.9987.

March 17: The YWCA's Woman of Excellence program features Judge Kim Wardlaw, the first Latina woman ever to be appointed to the Federal Court of Appeals. She'll be at the Donald R. Wright Auditorium of the Pasadena Central Library, 285 E. Walnut Ave., Pasadena, from 9:30 to 11:00. Tickets are $25 in advance or $35 at the door. Refreshments included. All proceeds go to support programs at the YWCA. Purchase tickets online at www.ywca.org/kimwardlaw or call Ashley at 626.296.8433.

March 20: Do you write or read a blog in the San Gabriel Valley? Join us for the second annual Bloggers' Picnic in Farnsworth Park (corner of Lake Ave. and Mount Curve in Altadena) from noon to 3:00 pm. Bring a potluck dish to share at this free, fun event.

Whenever: Help save the Adams Park Station General Store at Chantry Flats. Read Cafe Pasadena's post about how to give to the non-profit associated with the historic general store.

Hope to see you!

If you do nothing else, make sure you get the suikyaki dinner. (Well, and the picnic, of course.)

Oh my -- just read that YOU are one of the hosts of the SGV Bloggers' Picnic. OK, THE TWO GUYS want to join you. We will be late but we do want to come. Where to go? What should we bring? Decisions, decisions . . . .

Susan, I just looked at the Two Guy blog. Pour on the sweet talk, they must come.

Yes, Two Guys, you must come to the bloggers' picnic. Everyone will love you, and you will love everyone.
