Who knew brown-bagging it could be a cultural event? Or so beautiful & peaceful? Every Tuesday the Gamble House, the arts and crafts landmark designed by Charles and Henry Greene allows visitors to picnic on the rear terrace of this 1908 treasure from 11:30-1pm. Bring your lunch and if you finish early, enjoy a 20 minute tour of the house. Details below.
From the website: “Whether you work, live or are visiting Pasadena, whether you are a family, work, or tour group, or passer-by, whether it is winter or summer, you can re-design your Tuesday lunch break and visit The Gamble House. The Gamble House and garden on Westmoreland Place are sheltered from traffic congestion with the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop. Street parking is available and it’s an enjoyable place to relax away from pressures and commitments while experiencing one of the city’s architectural treasures.”
