Our home is on a quiet residential street in Pasadena, and we have such a rich cultural environment here, that it is hard to convince us to go to Los Angeles! My husband and I return to these places again and again, so this is easy reference for us, and a useful "insiders" tool for those who want to enjoy the riches of this unusual and richly cultured city.
