thursday nights

In July and August, Thursday nights will be open with live music at Descanso Gardens. Enjoy jazz or Pasadena POPS rehearsals along with the beautiful gardens for $3.50 (free for members)! I went last week and had a lovely picnic with my Phad Thai and Guiness. It rocked. Then I took a stroll and marvelled at these amazing dahlias, which are currently in full bloom. I love Descanso. I grew up 5 minutes from it, went as a kid and then went every December from 7-12th grade with my orchestra for our holiday tour. But I also like it because most of the gardens consist of trees in their natural environment (i.e. weren't transplanted there). For $70 you can get a couple's membership and enjoy the gardens all year round.

  2. Vero & I have been members at Descanso (need to renew) for the past 2-3 years. It is funny, since growing up near Descanso, it was a 'boring' place to go as a kid. Somehow growing up, and definitely becoming a parent, changed that.
