With Ramona
With friends Gary & Ramona. Gary buys, re-stores (if need be) and re-sells classic cars.

And the odd bike

Ramona stands by whatever this is. We’ll call it the mean, green road machine. You can say it captured our attention.

Rest of the Weekend:

At a Curated Collection
Candy & Tracy (from Candy’s photos)

There was some fantastic ART for sale Saturday at the official opening of the ART Hotel. These two pieces were my favorite. Cacti is by Zach Fleming & the Abstract is by Gerald Patrick. It was a fun afternoon with live music, wine, art, some collectors + a few new friends.

This is hotelier friend Tracy Turco wearing a vintage dress with Marilyn Monroe all over it and a great pair of heels (deserving of a closeup). The hotel itself is very funky. Tracy outfitted every room in her personal colorful manner – all differently. She put guitars in every room. Some come with turn tables + records. Now OPEN for business. Tiki hotel is in the works.

Then:

MODernism Yard SaleNot to be outdone by:
Talking with Tom Beatty, one of the co-owners of a new first class lounge that is sure to become a Palm Springs Favorite. More on this later.
Kevin from @psoystersociety was at “Dead or Alive” last night serving up delicious lobster rolls & fresh oysters.  He’s originally from
Massachusetts. His delicious rolls sell out fast. Wine list is curated by Christine, the owner/sommelier of this great little wine bar. They have a live jazz trio every Friday 8-11 pm.  Another hidden gem.
