This is another campus of Le Cordon Bleu on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California.  Some observers report seeing students lined up on the roof removing their toques, holding them in front of their hearts and pledging allegiance to the flag as it is raised in the morning, and then doing calisthenics including jumping jacks with pots and pans clattering in their hands.  Rumor has it that at the end of the school year the students are lined up on the ledge on the periphery of the building, and those that passed are allowed to step down as they are presented with their diplomas.  Those that failed are pushed over the ledge.  There is some evidence to substantiate this fictive claim by alcohol addled sous chefs as there are blue and pink lines drawn on Colorado Boulevard in front of the building to indicate the landing zone.  However, there have been reports of occasional sightings of failed culinary students maning the grill in Arby’s restaurants.
