If Caruso Builds It... They Will Come!

125,000 people wanted to be a part of opening day at TAAB as they arrived in droves to finally see what all the media coverage has been heralding! And they were not disappointed!

And the folks just kept on coming as the Glendale authorities reported 475,000 people came to play and shop over the weekend. The stores were packed as well as the restaurants -- there was a three hour wait at the Cheesecake Factory!

According to the Glendale News Press, traffic on the streets moved smoothly. TAAB and the Glendale police were completely prepared making sure no nasty backups occurred.

Surprisingly, TAAB has turned Glendale into a mini Manhattan as it was also reported that many people walked!

Call The Moving Van...

Or we will call it for you! The concierge can take care of all your needs when moving into your new home at The Americana at Brand. Come and pick out your apartment before they are all gone. Each apartment has at least one terrace where you can sit and watch the world go by. Be the envy of your friends when you invite them to The Americana at Brand for dinner and you're doing the cooking! Don't feel like cooking? No problem. Frida's will deliver!


Katsuya at TAAB has to be the most amazing place to eat. Not only do they have world class sushi, the ambiance is fierce! It's no wonder this sushi bar is one of the most popular places to eat in Southern California. Feel free to stop on by and have one of their famous cocktails... the martini with the jalapeno is amazing!

Jewel City Diner Redux

Normally a remake would make Angelenos groan, but not this one! Lines were out the door this weekend at the new Jewel City Diner to get a taste of TAAB's recreation of a Glendale fav! With its retro finishings, JCD is the perfect place to grab a fun, casual meal. Not in the mood for a burger and fries? Not to worry, the diner has a wonderful selection of salads and other light treats.

The original Jewel City Diner opened it's doors back in the early 1900s, so it's no surprise that Rick Caruso would want to bring back a touch of history to TAAB. Below is a pic of the original JCD.

Fun fact: In 1910, Glendale was nicknamed the Jewel City.

Tuxedos and Champagne!

The gala was in full swing last nite and everyone was dressed to the 9s! Thru a vast sea of black and white tuxedos, were flashes of color from all the gorgeous red carpet dresses. The champagne flowed as everyone mingled around the fairy tale like plaza. TAAB shined last nite like never before as the people made it come to life!

Entertainment at last nite's affair was MC'd by the hilarious Jay Leno and included songsters Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, The Four Tops and The Temptations. It was a nite to remember!

TAAB Thanks Devon Meade!

For contributing the awesome pic in our blog logo and the above fountain nite shot. Devon has been photographing TAAB since its incarnation and we just want her to know how much we appreciate her.

Open For Business!

The wait is over! At 10am this morning, TAAB stores opened their doors for the hundreds of people waiting to be the first to visit. The excitement was in the air as the Trolley officially broke through the ribbon on it's first trip around the property at the opening ceremony this morning. With the first ride on the Trolley, Rick Caruso, developer of this amazing destination and the Mayor of Glendale were there to celebrate the occasion!

Shoppers... On your marks... get set... GO!
