Congratulations to our winner Katherine T. from Arcadia who was the first to answer correctly in last month's newsletter!

Thank you to everyone who participated in last month's South Lake Trivia Game! We wanted to take a moment and shout out the first participant who answered correctly! The correct answer is 1979. Green Street Restaurant has been a Pasadena tradition and innovation since 1979. Serving California cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Green Street is the place where Pasadenans go to meet old friends, discuss business or just enjoy a fabulous meal. Green Street is still owned and operated by the family that started it as a one room, 18 table cafe. For more information, please visit their website at Green Street Restaurant.
