If Saturdays are your day to glean comfort and inspiration from unexpected places, look no further than this insider's tour of Caltech. Join District 7 Councilmember Andy Wilson for a walk through the history, science, and architecture of one of his favorite places in Pasadena.

In keeping with Andy's tradition of “constituent coffee” hours, we'll be starting with coffee al fresco at the venerated Athenaeum, where we'll hear stories of Einstein and other scientists who have rested, pondered, and dreamed within those walls.

At 9 AM, guided by a knowledgeable docent through Caltech's serene morning campus, we'll continue to the astonishing, futuristic Cahill Center, Caltech’s center of astronomy and astrophysics research.

We’ll continue our time-warp walk to the celestially adorned, Spanish Revival-style Linde+Robinson Laboratory, once home to astronomers and astrophysicists who searched for our universe's origins, and now home to interdisciplinary researchers who look into our future on Earth at the Linde Center for Global Environmental Science.

Finally, we’ll follow in the footsteps of Richard Feynman and countless Techers down to the Pie n’ Burger, where we’ll enjoy a comforting slice of pie as owner Mike Osborn regales us with stories of this other beloved Pasadena institution.

Hosted by Councilmember Andy Wilson (https://www.cityofpasadena.net/district7/) and the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition (https://www.pasadenacsc.org/).

This event is FREE.
