[[m:####Xpress Art Center
For seven years, Xpress Art Center's founders, Lyudmila Garayan and Armen Atomts, have taught youngsters and adults alike how to unearth their innate creativity through paints, charcoals, pastels, and watercolors. During classes and art camps, the Art Center teaches its students not only how create beautiful artwork but also how to unleash their imaginations to problem solve, build self-confidence, and map out a future as self-drawn cartoon characters. The programs have helped the center become a community mainstay, winning an impressive array of awards and recognition from the City of Los Angeles and the California Legislature Assembly.:m]]

Along with its original Pasadena location—which has kept neighborhood liquor cabinets in high spirits for more than 60 years—Mission Wine and Spirits stocks a massive selection of wine, beer, and spirits at its three outlets. Imported vintages from countries such as New Zealand and France share shelf space with more than 15 types of domestic wine. Amateur sommeliers can also choose from a range of ports, dessert wines, and sparkling wines. In addition, the shops fuel good-natured gatherings with domestic and imported beers, spirits ranging from Irish whiskey to absinthe, and digestives that settle stomachs after hearty meals or eating lava on a dare. Mixers such as celery bitters and sweet-and-sour mix spruce up liquors with cocktail flavoring, while nonalcoholic spirits and wines delight the taste buds of abstaining guests.
