Weekly What To Do: The Cheeseburger Passport Could Have Been Made Better

Look out as everything is pretty much on the weekend, leading into Pasadena's Cheeseburger Week...who might have like one guy whose in charge of it. And, he's trying, but the rest of the city is just not helping. Glendale has a Shepard Fairey exhibit going on and it just makes us ponder why Pasadena couldn't get an artist to give some love to their Cheeseburgers. Anyway, I hear Yoga and cheeseburgers go well together.
