A new wine store named Monopole looks set to debut next to Pasadena’s Elements Kitchen sometime around November 13th. The business plans to curate a selection of unique wines that spans the globe in origin, as well as a tasting house and online store. They also have a blog that thanks the soon-to-be-terminated governor and details the adventure obtaining their ABC license, which included a hearing with “a crazy lady ranting” and even crazier slog through the state’s bureaucracy. Monopole, 21 S. El Molino Ave. Pasadena. 626-577-9463.
