Weekend Wrap-up, Pasadena-style!

Saturday was mostly me recovering from sleep debt and other stress related stuff. I moved some more things, then Sunday was a day to hang out in Pasadena at the Pasadena Police Classic Car Show & the Pasadena Chalk Fest 2008. Left later than anticipated, but the MTA Gold Line got us there. It was super hot so we were glad we brought some bottled water and when we were out, there was a Starbucks van handing out samples of Frappachino. sweet! (seriously).

I was up super late getting these pix up so you can see my flickr groups HERE and HERE respectively. There were so many photos I had to break it up into 2 parts. The first is the car show, then the 2nd is lunch at Islands and the chalk fest. Included are some pix of some bands that were there entertaining as well. We stopped in Filmore station to pick up some groceries on the way back at the first TJ's (or one of the first) and I got some shots later, but honestly this stuff wore me out. Here are some highlights!

Pasadena Police Classic Car Show:
1948 Chevy Pickup

Entertainment was provided by "the answer to classic rock" who did a pretty good cover of 70s/ 80s hits.

another Chevy!


Classic Ford Engine

Lunch at Islands:
Island fries with cheese. =)

Meeko's favorite Island burger:
Aloha burger with bacon (extra on the bacon).. I dare you to click on the photo (or better yet the original!).

Chalk Festival:

"Girls drawing Girls"

A little Lakers pride.

some art had serious themes:


gazing on a classic theme.

working out the details.

finishing the details.


There's many more in the flickr groups but you get the idea. It was a lot of really cool and sometimes amazing work all done from a picture or an idea, drawn & colored ot large scale and put down in chalk and judged.
