Gallery 446 in Palm Springs is welcoming a little Coachella ready art show called ART and SOUND. Huge group effort that features everyone from Moby to Cisco Adler. It’s on view through May 4.
Need some festival travel help while at Coachella? Uber has some special programming for the occasion called #UberAllAccess which will give lucky riders some rad swag and “artist pickups.” WTF? Amazing. Happening April 11 through April 13 and April 18 through April 20.
Palm Springs Art Museum is apparently building an architecture and design museum. How wild is this? Help out if you can!
We saw friends sharing this on Facebook but great news if you are looking for a new place to add to cool houses to stay in Palm Springs: for $325 a night, you can get a huge compound with a pool four bedrooms, three baths, and six beds. Accommodates up to ten and pets are cool. Four night minimum, though!
We’ve stayed at The Saguaro in Palm Springs two times. People always ask how it is, hoping to solve some sort of desert puzzle that they’ve yet to open themselves. We say it’s fine, not the best, but good. The walls in the rooms are thin and, while the execution of color is brilliant, at points it does feel like a fancy Holiday Inn (Ahem, the bathrooms.). It’s decidedly not suffocatingly scene-y and the pool area is quite nice. It’s probably the most dog friendly hotel in the city, too.
The biggest reason to go to The Saguaro isn’t because of anything related to actually staying in the hotel, though: it’s for the food, specifically the Mexican treats at El Jefe. The restaurant and bar is the casual dining concept at The Saguaro located on the Southeast side of the lobby. It’s entry is through an exposed wall bookshelf filled with Southwestern tchotchkes and Saguaro related items. It’s never crazy in there and everything is surprisingly authentic and good. Who knew there was a Mexican destination in the middle of the desert?
