The Playhouse Village Association in Pasadena celebrates Hispanic and Latino Heritage Month starting Wednesday by inviting the community to support Hispanic and Latino-owned businesses in the district.
In its September 2021 newsletter, the association said a wonderful way to start celebrating is to savor the flavors of Latin America with a meal at Hispanic-themed restaurants in the Village — among them El Portal, El Metate Cafe and Anaya’s — or by supporting local artisans and creators at Mercadito Monarca, a cultural arts gift shop at 696 E. Colorado Blvd., Suite 19, among many other shops in Playhouse Village.
“We look forward to seeing you in the Village as you discover or visit your favorite Hispanic and Latino-owned business. Thanks for supporting local,” the group said in the monthly newsletter.
As with all businesses throughout Pasadena, businesses in Playhouse Village, and individuals, venue operators or hosts of public indoor settings must require customers to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, and post signs at entry points communicating the masking requirement. Inside restaurants, bars, pubs, and breweries, masks may be taken off only when eating or drinking.
