We’re honored to be honored! The Greater Palm Springs Rodeo group which produces the Hot Rodeo each year is presenting the Gay Desert Guide content team with an award for keeping the community informed during the COVID crisis. Buck Beal phoned me this week and they’ve set Thursday at 4:30 PM at Roost Lounge in Cathedral City for the presentation. You’re welcome to come by and have a happy hour drink with us.
We’re still not out of the pandemic woods yet, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of families wearing masks outside on the streets of Palm Springs this week.
San Diego Pride marches forward this weekend and continues with most activities planned for next weekend. According to organizers, “Rather than our typical Pride Parade which would start in Hillcrest’s Pride Plaza and travel down to Balboa Park, this year we will meet in Balboa Park and march into Hillcrest.” If you’re heading to San Diego to beat the heat, you can check our events calendar for a complete schedule of events.
One of the cool indoor events happening each Thursday this summer is “Jazzville”, as concepted by Barry Martin (DJ Baz), a member of our community. The venue is perfect: The Cascade Lounge at Agua Caliente Casino in downtown Palm Springs.
