Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Feb. 11–13, 2022🌴

February 11–13, 2022 

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend and for those of us who are single, it’s time to hunker down and stay put. In fact, I’ll use Omicron as an excuse to keep out of circulation.

I have a number of single friends with whom I commiserate. We’re of the mindset that finding a mate in Palm Springs is as elusive at finding an affordable apartment. But hope springs eternal, and I’ll keep putting myself out there. Just not this weekend…


So NBC scored with the rights to the Winter Olympics and The Super Bowl. For many of us, that means watching figure skating and the halftime show! (And the commercials…)

There’s still plenty to see and do locally this weekend. It’s a good time to purchase Modernism Week tickets. See our blog on affordable things to do here. And I’ll see you next week after the candy hearts and flowers have expired.


For the latest, follow our socials @GayDesertGuide and @KGAY1065 and listen to KGAY Palm Springs wherever you may be!
