For conference guests and participants who will be here to enjoy our wonderful city, this blog will be a place to start the conversation about what to see and do. First of all, you should know that the Hilton is right across the street from the fully staffed and very helpful Pasadena Convention and Visitors Bureau. Staff from the bureau will also be available on Thursday at the Hilton. We’re here to help you find the best restaurants, museums, golf courses and shopping so post your comments/questions here. And our committee will help you find the best of the Pasadena area–and further afield if you’re ready to brave our freeways.  Linda Clingerman, Visitor and Guest Activities

The Pasadena Visitors Bureau will provide lots of information about restaurants in Pasadena. We also thought it would be fun to share some of our favorites with you. If you’re looking for a certain type of restaurant, leave a comment here and we will put our heads together to come up with some good ideas.

Halloween is a fun holiday here. Many neighborhoods are extravagantly decorated and trick or treaters arrive in droves. Here are some ideas on celebrating.

Halloween Silent Movie at Disney Hall
Take this opportunity to visit Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown L.A. and hear the magnificent organ pump up the music for the silent movie version of Phantom of the Opera. Tickets are $24 to $49 and available online at  Pre-concert talk starts at 7; the show starts at 8 on Friday, October 31.

Any Trick or Treaters with You?
Retailers in Paseo Colorado (just north of the Hilton) hand out trick or treats from 3 to 7. If you have children with you who want to trick or treat in a residential neighborhood, let us know by leaving a comment here. We can help arrange a trip to one of our neighborhoods so they won’t miss out. We would also like to prepare a Halloween activity package for them.
