Bed Race, Dinah Shore and Dame Edna


It was an another amazing weekend in the desert. The food and wine event in Palm Desert had an amazing turnout. They had over 50 restaurants doing tastings including our very own Purple Room and Rio Azul Mexican Cantina. There were several celebrity chefs along with some of our favorite local ones. For a complete list go HERE. I hope you were able to experience this once a year event.

 

Today we  wind up another successful year for The American Documentary Film Festival, and I want to give a shout out to all the filmmakers for bringing there films to our wonderful city. Pictured here is our very own Brad Fuhr with filmmaker Andrea Meyerson and our Mayor Steve Pougnet. Thank you to all those who went and supported this event.

 

The grandest of all Dames, the fabulous Dane Edna is in town at the McCallum Theatre with her Farewell Tour till March 4th. Dame Edna Everage is celebrating a 50-year career of sold-out venues, command performances for the Royal Family, television specials and around-the-world tours. If you have never had the chance to see Ms. Edna, I would advise you to take this once in a lifetime opportunity and see this quick witted sharp tongue grand diva. You can purchase tickets HERE.

 

This Wednesday April 1st, starts the beginning of The Dinah Shore weekend that is considered the #1 lesbian event in the world. It was originally created by Mariah Hanson back in 1991. Mariah’s first Dinah was sold out where she  booked  hotels so that they were 100% lesbian occupied, brought in national sponsors, popular national recording artists, and kept all events in walking distance. Top headliners in the past has included The Pussycat Dolls, Pat Benetar and many others and this year is no disappointment with Meghan Trainor, Christina Perri and many more. To get tickets and more information you can go to there website HERE
