Pre-Demolation Black Friday Sale at Palm Springs Spa Hotel

First the Native American Garden with the great 1950s architecture got demolished. Now it's time for the hotel to go. You can buy a piece of the historic Palm Springs Spa hotel at a sale on Black Friday in downtown Palm Springs.

Santa's Coming to the Palm Springs Air Museum

Palm Springs Air Museum
Bet you didn't know Palm Springs had an air museum, and a darn good one at that. Better than the one in Dayton, Ohio (on second thought, not really). 

Get this--every holiday season (yes, that's coming up) Santa flies in one of those ancient airplanes  into the air strip behind the museum with bags of candy for the kiddies.

This year Santa presents his wonderful self on Dec. 18th at 1 p.m. Be there or be square.

Palm Springs Day Trip--Pioneer

Ahhh...Pioneertown! It's the essence of the West, the vintage treasure about an hour's drive from Palm Springs via Highway 62 and Pioneer Town Road (a scenic route).

Bang-bang-shoot-'em up films made decades ago thrilled audiences around the globe. The lure of the nostalgia transports you back in time with even a taste of the grub at Pappy and Harriet's Western-themed restaurant and bar.

Holster up! Come to Pioneertown.

Palm Springs Daily Photo is Back!

After quite a hiatus from blogging, I'm back with a photo a day.

Here's today's, a tiki bar that recently opened at 1101 N. Palm Canyon Drive.

Bootlegger Tiki is in the same space as Don the Beachcomber.
