Karin Bugge view from the trail
I'd love to have attended the event you posted. (And I'd kill for some good gumbo!)
Well, not actually kill...maybe just threaten a little, with a wooden spoon and some roux....
Come on down. It's here, every Wednesday. With fresh oysters and fish, and all that green leafy and red round stuff. And we've got music twice a week. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am.
We had a beautiful night last night, too. Alas, no music, except some mysterious creature in a tree, sounded something like a duck/cricket hybrid.
I wanna be there. If you, however, want an outdoor sauna with a just hint of ozone, come to Phoenix. 110today!Still waiting for your face.
Looks like a fun evening!!!
Looks wonderful. The type of thing we need to appreciate and support!
I'll have what you're having.
Looks like a lovely community.
I like the bent tree in the second picture. And I'm betting your Louisiana food came with less humidity than one would normally find around Louisiana food.
Very appealing indeed. Music, food, fresh air.
What a wonder, cello music in the park and Cajun food (DH is from SW Louisiana). Good gumbo IS hard to find. Even if you get the roux right, there's the argument over how much gumbo filé is good (less is more at our house) but get a good dish of the stuff and it's a like falling in love.And don't get me started on red beans and rice. No one makes a better pot than me.
Gumbo AND red beans and rice AND music twice a week = the trifecta in a place that knows how to do summer right ~
I worry about articles like this. Maybe too many people will discover that overlooked gem of a town called Altadena.Back in February I drove through town on the way to the Millard Falls trail (which turned out to be closed). I'd been there before, and once again I thought, What a beautiful place . . . streets shaded with huge, old camphor trees . . . cool old homes . . . all tucked at the base of the San Gabes. May it remain FAR below the radar.
Wednesday. Wednesday! I even know some of these people.John E is right. Shut up already.
Sounds a very enjoyable evening!What a magnificent tree!
Jean, oddly, I can imagine exactly what that sounds like.Pierre, Ah well, our temps are rising now, too. But 110, that's strong stuff. (I'll get on that picture next week.)Chief, Tony, & Red Pat, I know. I was just talking to another Altadena friend today and we can't believe how much the place has changed in the past couple of years. For the better.Marjie, you'd win that bet.Paula, it's my favorite food, bar none. I can make a decent gumbo, but the roux is an issue.Banjo, yup.Well said, Sharon.John E is always right.Sonia, it's a beautiful park.
Suddenly, the title struck me like something from a Broadway musical!
This is my town too but I've been too wrapped up in my busy life to enjoy it. Thanks for reminding me how lucky I am, or could be if I'd just take the time to explore what's in my very own backyard.
Oh man, I had to miss this.EVERY Wednesday night? Count me in next time!
You Altadena boosters! You and your perfect town. I hate you all.
You're Altadena's Town Booster.
