Hot Girls Belly Dancing

Now why would they have belly dancers at a party celebrating the opening of the Holiday Inn in Palm Springs?

Because belly dancers are symbolic of the desert. Think about it all over the Arab world belly dancers shake their hips at exotic clubs throughout the Middle East, lurid fun (at least to some) that seems a world away from the the calls to prayer heard on the streets there.

Come to think about it our desert (the Coachella Valley desert) hums with Arab-speak from the naming of streets (Arabia Street in Indio) to the Date Festival (dates are also big in the Arab states) that's happening right at this very minute.
