Welcome to “The Little Blog that Could” We at team Pasadena Adjacent live in the Highland Park neighborhood of Garvanza.
Join us on a narcissistic journey into the minutia that floods our daily lives as we display the oddities we hold near and dear. Take part in local history. Visit secret gardens, under appreciated art, wonders in concrete, trash on Tuesdays.
Bored with our guile, cunning and persuasive charm? Then you might enjoy hitching a ride on the editor’s bus. We hear it’s the 175th most exciting thing to do in Pasadena
Disclaimer: Although every effort is made to be factual, don’t rely on us for scholarship. We will not be held responsible – and you will look stupid.
Unpaid, unsung and unsullied thus far, we ARE willing to accept swag and bribes. Still waiting
