The courtyard located at 41 Hugus Alley in Old Pasadena is commonly known as “One Colorado.” This lovely space is surrounded by seven restaurants (like Il Fornaio Cucina Italiana), 25 stores (like Crate & Barrel), a movie theater and 12 office tenants in 17 historic buildings.
During the summer’s evenings and weekends, One Colorado becomes also an oasis of entertainment that offers multiple opportunities to listen to musicians, play games, and watch movies.
This Saturday, June 22, for example, will be a “KCRW Summer Night.” Curated by Jason Bentley, this series presents music concerts in a relaxed atmosphere that is family friendly and free of charge.
Starting at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Little Jeans (Monica Birkeness) will perform her pop dance music selections, including original songs and covers of well-known tunes, like Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” This Norwegian artist has a distinct voice and a delivery that turns her act into an art performance. And, prior to her set, the DJs of KCRW will entertain.
The following afternoon, on Sunday, June 23, you can gather your family and friends at One Colorado to play Bingo, the game hosted by humorist Charles Phoenix and the famous “Bingo Boy” Jeffery Bowman. Starting at 4 p.m., this event goes beyond just fun as there are plenty of exciting prizes for the Bingo winners from the stores and restaurants that surround the courtyard.
Looking ahead, the Old Pasadena Film Festival will be at One Colorado during the month of July, when you will be able to watch movies under the stars and with your entire family. (Keep an eye on www.onecolorado.com for the film schedule.)
Shopping, dining, movies, and entertainment can all be done at One Colorado. It is a one-stop-do-all location and you will hardly need to go anywhere else!
