We have a new bumper sticker.

I hear it increases the value of your car by ten percent.

During the heat wave, we went to Robin’s.

Gavin played Ms. Pacman.

We found Aaron‘s name on the menu. And Steve Haderlein’s name. And Paul Little‘s name.

I wish I had an inflatable beer bottle.

(To go with our inflatable Godzilla.)

Robin was there, and he came over and said hi. By then my camera was put away and I was eating my salad and some of Gavin’s ribs, and I was also feeling a little star struck, so I didn’t get a picture.

Martini at Madeleine’s

The bar in the Bordeaux Room at Madeleine’s is a great place for a quiet drink. It is one of the few bars in Pasadena with no television.

Peace in the Valley

Word on the street is that Robin Salazar of Robin’s Wood Fire BBQ & Grill, and former candidate for Pasadena District 1 city council seat is going to name a burger after Aaron Proctor. From Aaron’s blog this morning:

“So – anyway – Robin’s idea? He’s putting me in the menu in about a month under the Pat E. Melt. He’s also adding a “Wall of Fame” to his restaurant and wants me to be a part of that. Awesomeness. I’ve never had a burger attributed to me in my life. He said it might mention it’s a favorite of “Former and future Mayoral candidate, wrestling all-star, future gubernatorial, future presidential candidate Aaron Proctor”….

…Robin also apologized for the “incident” that started it all back at the Affordable Housing Forums.

Apology accepted, barbecue sauce under the bridge. I also stifle any insults I’ve hurled at him….” (link)
