Pasadena is a flurry of magical events this time of year. With the Rose Parade just around the corner and the Rose bowl game to follow. I have had the luxury of viewing the parade in person as I tumbled out of bed the morning after a neighbors New Years Eve Party and jogged up the block in the early morning of New Years day to my gifted seats on Orange Grove Blvd. Nothing like seeing and smelling the scent of the fresh flowers on the floats as they go by with all of the excitement from children and adults alike leave such memorable moments never to be forgotten. This New Years one of my favorite swing bands, Bad Bad Voodoo Daddy will be performing at Disney Hall. If you need a little reminding about who these kool kats are think of music from the movie, Swingers. This would be a memorable moment and nice birthday gift don't you think? What are your New Years plans this year?
