California’s top wine producers are coming to you! Celebrate California's rich wine history and its many beautiful and diverse wine regions at the Family Winemakers of California's Tasting. Only open to members of the wine-buying trade, for the first time in Pasadena this annual tasting is opening its doors to the general public.
From the state's most acclaimed wine regions to the up-and-coming, this tasting features more than 175 producers from all over California showcasing their boldest and brightest vintages.

When we think of tea time, we tend to think of an English tea, with scones and clotted cream (or maybe that’s just us, and our love of clotted cream!). But there’s another ceremonial and lovely tea time – Japanese Tea. Take a peek inside the Huntington Garden’s ceremonial teahouse and learn the traditions behind its use. Informal tours are offered on the second Monday of the month.

Enjoy a free evening of art, music and entertainment as Pasadena’s most prominent arts and cultural institutions swing open their doors. Last fall, 14,000 people experienced the excitement of ArtNight! Please join us for our opening reception showcasing the work of our next talented Art on the Stairwell artist, Alicia Gorecki in the Vroman's Pen & Stationery department located on the first floor.
Alicia is an award winning fine artist, illustrator, and instructor. With roots in painting, drawing, and printmaking, she is also an accomplished digital artist. She is a true renaissance artist, constantly seeking connections, be they personal or artistic; she adventurously pursues new techniques, inspiration, and knowledge. Her work bridges multiple arts disciplines, industry, and stylistic boundaries. When not busy making stuff, she enjoys helping others find ways to make their own stuff through teaching and collaborating. Her absolute favorite creation is her son Reid Gorecki and she loves morphing into whatever his playful whims require.
