Now that it’s cooled off enough to contemplate leaving air conditioned comfort in the evenings, it’s time to go out and do something! Of course, a Vroman’s event is always an excellent bet. They’re free, they’re interesting, there’s sure to be something for everyone, and you are welcome to come and listen even if you know nothing about the author; like movie previews, but for books (and the store is air conditioned, just in case). If you’re feeling outdoorsy, try out our Summer Author and Music Series – the first installment happens this weekend on our paseo stage with author Donna Lethal and musical guests The Shore.
If, however, you’ve run in to those rare days where we don’t have an event scheduled, the rest of Pasadena can help you out!
The 8th Annual Free Jazz Summer Concert Series has started, which takes place (conveniently) on the Vroman’s paseo stage in front of our store. A different artist or group performs every Sunday at 5pm – you can see who is coming up and get more information here.
Levitt Pavilion also has a free summer music series, with a different artist almost every night at 7pm. It’s a nice walk from Vroman’s – you can start with some quality book shopping, stop by Paseo Colorado or another on-the-way restaurant for a bite to eat, and finish your afternoon/evening with a great show. Sounds like a good evening to me!
If music isn’t really your thing, replace the scenario above with this one: start at Vroman’s to pick up a great new book, stop by Paseo Colorado or in Old Town for a bite to eat, and finish your afternoon/evening at One Colorado or another nearby venue, where the Old Pasadena Film Festival is going on all of July and August. Tonight they are showing Edward Scissorhands, tomorrow is Father of the Bride, and Saturday is The Thomas Crown Affair. Truly, something for everyone.
