Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard delivered his annual State of the City address on Thursday, and the venue was the newish ArcLight Cinemas at the Paseo Colorado.
The theater marquee, seen above, displayed the special engagement alongside its regular movie showtimes.
The tone of the speech was largely sober, as Bogaard described the serious fiscal challenges facing the city. Budget constrictions have already forced city layoffs, and employee pay cuts are a likely next step.
Bogaard also touched on the $152 million Rose Bowl renovation and the city’s 125th anniversary.

Video: Behind the scenes of the latest cover shoot for Pasadena’s Rose Magazine

Pet-crazy is one way to describe our team as we planned for the cover of the latest issue of Rose Magazine.
The little guy you see in the video is Oscar, a Yorkshire Maltese, and he’s showing off his stuff with owner, Sofia Gonzalez.

Oscar is very tiny, which means he was a perfect fit for our crowded and hectic photo studio. Oscar was also kind enough to let us surround him with girly, pink, glittering pet accessories, even though he is decidedly a boy pup.

The bag you see featured on the cover is an original dog carrier designed and sold by The Shabby Dog, a local company based out of an adorable bungalow in Sierra Madre. All the accessories and dog carriers in the video are Shabby Dog products, and we were lucky to work with stylist Ronnie Grinie.
Sofia’s wardrobe includes a pink ruffled shoulder dress by Milly and a pin dot-textured spaghetti-strap dress by Rebecca Taylor.
