Lunch on the terrace plus a $5 tour
at the Gamble House in Pasadena

Gamble

No, you can't live at the Gamble House. But starting April 13, you can picnic there.

The Gamble House, one of  Pasadena's most sublime examples of Arts and Crafts architecture, is launching  "Brown Bag Tuesdays," a weekly lunch-hour program designed to take advantage of the warmer weather.

Visitors are invited to bring their lunch and picnic on the rear lawn or terrace of the 1908 estate designed by Charles and Henry Greene between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each Tuesday. Two 20-minute docent-led tours will be given at 12:15 and 12:45 p.m., with a cost of $5.

The Gamble House, 4 Westmoreland Place, Pasadena; (626) 793-3334. Reservations: (626) 449-4178. Tours continue Tuesdays through Oct. 23.

How much does it cost to picnic back in 1985?

You can live there if you're a USC architecture student! The school owns it and 2 fifth-year students get to live there every year.
