Old Town Report (12/18/17)

By Pam Fitzpatrick Well, last column of the year – and what a year!  We lost our Candy Connection (which meant no chocolate cornucopia this year…), but gained “Frooza” in its place; Copper Still Grill finally opened in the 600 block (after almost 5 years of construction…); we lost the Sow House and gained Craft…

Monrovia Old Town Report (12/21/17)

Here’s the schedule: Jake’s Roadhouse (9 a.m.), Oh Mulberry Bush (10 a.m.) and Rudy’s Mexican Restaurant (11 a.m.).  The gifts this year were donated…

Monrovia Old Town Report

By Pam Fitzpatrick I’m so excited! I finally got my hands on Richard (Dick) Singer’s book about modern Monrovia. The “Renaissance Years” chronicles the making of the Monrovia we know and love today. Like most of you, my focus has been on the extraordinary rebirth of our town (including Old Town) during the last 50…

Monrovia Old Town Report (8/24/17 Issue)

By Pam Fitzpatrick Since I ended last week’s column rather abruptly (or so says my youngest sister) with the comment, “I’m trying not to be nosey, but…”, I guess it’s only fair to admit I was nosey, and did find out officially (via the City of Monrovia), that the new Mama’s Juicery (where Press Café…

Monrovia Old Town Report (7/27/17 Issue)

By Pam Fitzpatrick I admit I’m very glad I was on out of town last week during the Old Town filming episode. I hear it was a bit crazy… So sorry for the merchants who were blind-sided, but if there’s any comfort, so was I, and so was the City. The upside still remains: if…

Monrovia Old Town Report 07/13/17

By Pam Fitzpatrick Earlier this week, as Monrovia’s Volunteer Film Liaison for Old Town, I had the pleasure of walking Old Town with another team of producers and their location manager. This group was from Universal Television and the pilot is intended to air on USA Network with activity beginning next week in Old Town….

Monrovia Old Town Report 7/6/17

By Pam Fitzpatrick Today, as I write this column, it is July 4, Independence Day. Starting early this morning, Library Park was already populated by scores of brightly-colored EZ-Ups and happy people taking happy pictures with friends and family. Fourth of July is one working holiday that I really enjoy – the happy crowds, the…

Old Town Report 6/22/17

By Pam Fitzpatrick I would rather start out each week’s column on a happy note, and digress later as needed.  But when one of my Old Town merchant friends gets scammed, that’s the first thing on my mind. I just sent out a group email to my business neighbors warning them of a new scam,…

Monrovia Old Town Report 06/15/17

By Pam Fitzpatrick Lots of folks wandering in and about Old Town these last few days, cameras in hand, checking out parking lots, backs of buildings, taking pictures of some of the oddest things – well, that’s the production crew from Radical Media.  Tourists take pictures of the front of buildings, artists and location managers…

Monrovia Old Town Report (5/11/17 Issue)

By Pam Fitzpatrick Back in the days when we had more energy, I remember shifting our shop locations a number of times. This was the process: find a new space to lease; lease it; pack up location #1; move everything to location #2; open the next day.  It was usually a one-week process, with the…
