It’s Thanksgiving week, that one time of the year when the whole nation focuses on the plate.

I have always preferred the side dishes to the main course. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoy a traditional roast turkey with gravy. But there’s something special about creamy mashed potatoes, flavorful filling, sweet corn pudding, and broccoli with decadent hollandaise sauce. They’re even more satisfying when you combine them all in one bite.

Apparently many Americans agree with me. In a survey of 5,000 people commissioned by Campbell’s Soup66% of respondents said they prefer side dishes to main courses at Thanksgiving dinner. Half said they were happy to have just the sides on their holiday plate.

According to the Marylanders are particularly fond of fillings State of the Sides reportwhich claims it’s the most popular side dish in the Old Line State.

Do you agree? I would love to hear what you have on your plate this holiday season. Send me your favorites (and pictures!) to ayeager@baltsun.com.

Speaking of state favorites, a popular Korean dish is taking the spotlight in Maryland this month.

Governor Larry Hogan Has proclaimed Nov 22 “Kimchi Day” in state, honoring the court’s importance to Maryland’s growing Korean-American community.

Kimchi, traditionally made from fermented cabbage, radishes, and other vegetables, is a staple of Korean cuisine. The spicy specialty is often made in late autumn; First Lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan is known for making her own batches of kimchi to keep on hand throughout the winter.

If you want to celebrate Kimchi Day by trying some kimchi, you can buy it at local markets such as Kimchi H Mart and Lotte Plaza. Or try your hand at making your own this recipe shared in the sun last year.

Susannah Sigers Hampden Boutique was born from a spontaneous idea to start a business combining her two obsessions: shoes and chocolate.

Ma Petite Shoe was an Avenue staple for 18 years before Siger moved her inventory online and closed the brick-and-mortar store in 2020 due to the pandemic. Now she is ready to revive the concept in a new place.

Ma Petite Shoe returns to Hampden this weekend with a grand opening on Black Friday 25th November. This time there is an even bigger footprint to fill with shoes and candy. Siger takes over a storefront on the corner of West 36th Street and Roland Avenue that was once the home sugar, a sex toy store. The space is more spacious than Ma Petite Shoe’s old house a few blocks down.

“I don’t know if we can legitimately call ourselves ‘petite’ anymore,” she said.

The reopening marks Siger’s return after an absence of over two years, during which she sold shoes online and relocated to the Ozarks. The focus of Ma Petite Shoe will be the same as before, with shelves of boots, flats and heels in classic and eclectic styles, as well as a wide range of chocolate bars and truffles.

The shop has always been known for their range of 100% cocoa dark chocolate and Siger will be stocking these bars again, including a pistachio and date chocolate from England. For those with a sweet tooth, there are boxes of truffles in flavors like raspberry and praline, a cannoli truffle bar, and peppermint bark in white and dark chocolate varieties. The shop hosts hot cocoa nights every Saturday in December to encourage Hampden’s holiday shopping season.

Siger’s personal favourite, a pink peppercorn candy bar, will also be in stock.

“We go from sublime to ridiculous with flavors,” she said.

All-day breakfast and classic diner fare from a “Chopped” Winners come to White Marsh.

Silver Dinner has plans to open a new location The Avenue at White Marsh 2024, the mall announced last week. The diner will move into an area of ​​more than 8,000 square meters next door Barnes & Noble.

This will be the 23rd location for the Rockville-based Silver Diner chain, which has eight restaurants in Maryland and others in Washington, DC, Virginia and New Jersey. Alongside diner staples like meatloaf, buttermilk pancakes, and chicken pot pie, Executive Chef and co-founder Ype by Stalliona winner of the Food Network show Chopped, is also adding “flexitarian” options to the menu to meet gluten-free, meatless, and heart-healthy diets.

The White Marsh restaurant will seat 320 indoors and another 36 on an outdoor terrace when it opens sometime in 2024.

Docks on the Harbor will take the place of Dick's Last Resort in the Inner Harbor power station development.

A new restaurant promising “Instagram-worthy dishes” is on track to fill the vacancy Dick’s last resort.

The restaurant received critical acclaim during its original run. Sabrina Medora of the Washington City Paper praised the Wing Spot in the alt-weekly’s Article August 2020, These are the neighborhood bars and restaurants we’ve come to rely on during the pandemic: “The last time we got Silver Spring Wings, my husband and I spent two days feasting on leftovers with unwavering enthusiasm.

The World Cup, by far the most intense and entertaining international sports competition there is, is finally here. It has been a long four years since the last and a particularly long eight years since the US men’s national team last played at a World Cup.

Unlike this time, the World Cup will be held in late November and December instead of in the summer to avoid the intense summer heat in Qatar, the small Middle Eastern country hosting the 2022 World Cup. Given the 10-hour time difference between Denver and Doha, serious football fans can lose a lot of sleep in the Mile High City during the World Cup.

While there are many good spots to watch the World Cup around the Denver Metro, here are our best options for watching tournament games.

Raíces is packed for football matches, especially when it comes to Latin American teams.

There’s a real chance Argentina or Brazil could win the World Cup, so watching games surrounded by Latin Americans – who eat, sleep and breathe football – would be a smart move. Raíces Brewing Company is the perfect place for this; The venue has a large projector set up for maximum viewing capacity. Be sure to try the Manguito, a dangerously tasty beer that spoils pretty quickly, even in the morning. Raíces has listed all the games it will be showing on a calendar here.

For those who are actually Argentina fans or worship Lionel Messi, Maria Empanada offers the ultimate experience. “For the first Argentina game, we even open at 3 a.m.. That’s how committed we and our Argentine fans are,” says Victor Arango from the Argentine café, whose owner Lorena Cantarovici is from Argentina. The flagship South Broadway location will stream every game of the tournament, even if Argentina isn’t playing. “Even our team will wear new uniforms: the jersey of the Argentine team!” he notes.

“We’re going to give away things at all the games… It’s going to be crazy as always,” adds Arango. For example, during the Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia match, which starts at 3am on November 22nd, Maria Empanada is giving away an official tournament ball.

If you want to capture patriotic vibes while watching the USMNT attempt to battle their way out of the group stage, Celtic on Market is for you. The Denver chapter of the American Outlaws, USMNT’s fan group, will be hosting watch parties at the Celtic and there’s a good chance everyone here will learn the “I think we’re winning” chant.

As well as showing all US games, the Celtic will be open for all England and Mexico games as well as all games scheduled for 8am, 9am and 12pm in the group stage . After that, Celtic shows all games in later rounds. “We have a full breakfast menu, including a full Irish breakfast,” says Noel Hickey, the Irishman who owns the bar.

England qualified for the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia thanks to prolific goalscorer Harry Kane. The team should be good again, and all the best guys will congregate at the British Bulldog, whose general manager Kevin Tuohy says it’s the “best place in Denver to see this year’s World Championships.”

The British Bulldog is open for all games played at 6am and later. Expecting large crowds for games, the Bulldog will operate a shuttle between the Bulldog and the Icehouse Tavern — a partner bar — when it reaches capacity. “We encourage all fans to arrive early to ensure they experience the best matchday atmosphere that you can only get at The British Bulldog,” said Tuohy. “Although we won’t have our full menu, we will have breakfast options and British favorites for all to enjoy.”

For those on the east side of the metro area, the Cheluna Brewing Company at Stanley Marketplace offers an ideal viewing environment. Cheluna, which features an Oaxacan-style bar, will open for gaming at 6am November 21-November 28 excluding Thanksgiving. And for the final four days of group matches, starting November 29, Cheluna opens at 8:00am. The Watch parties are also co-hosted with Denver FC, the semi-pro football club, and the American Outlaws fan group.

DNVR Bar goes crazy during games.

Partnering with the Colorado Rapids for the World Series, the DNVR Bar opens its doors for all group stage games starting at 6am. The bar serves a full breakfast menu as well as drinks (from 7am when legal). The relatively small sports bar’s intimate vibe might be just the ticket for chilly November and December mornings.

The Abbey Tavern is the official Denver bar for Liverpool FC fans.

Another great bar that offers an intimate football experience is the Abbey Tavern, a bar in Liverpool. Many of the fans will come here to cheer for Sadio Mané so he can compete with Senegal, a potential Dark Ross contender to win it all. The Abbey shows all lunchtime games every day during the group stage, with the exception of Thanksgiving; it will be open for all knockout round matches. And while Ireland may not be in this tournament, pints of Guinness will surely flow at the Abbey.

The Traitors have reached their finals which will see a showdown on Sunday at 7.30pm on Play 10 and 10.

Hosted by an Australian actor Rodger Corser, The finale will see the two remaining Faithfuls, craig and Lewis fight against two traitors Alex and Kate.

That comes after Teresa, who revealed herself to be faithful was sent home, leaving everyone shocked.

The Traitors sees a group of 24 players, also known as Faithful, living together in a grand ol’ hotel where they must use their wits as they complete challenges to win silver bars and contribute to a prize pool of silver worth up to $250,000.

Left and right: Loyalists Craig and Lewis

However, there is a twist as some of the followers are actually traitors and their mission is to eliminate the followers one by one.

The traitors will work together, conspiring and plotting behind the followers’ backs, and each night they will sneak away and choose a follower from the game to kill.

That psychological adventure series has already been commissioned in several territories including the UK and the United States, with Network 10 promising to bring a uniquely Australian flavor to the franchise.

In September, Channel 10 offered Australians a first look at The Traitors.

Peter NeumanCEO of Endemol Shine Australia, said: “Australian families can expect an entertaining mix of suspicion, deceit and betrayal that will have them captivated on their screens from start to finish.”

Traitors - Alex and Kate

The original format was created by Dutch producer IDTV, and although the executive producer had to watch the original series with subtitles on, Ciaran Flannery said that the team was immediately enthusiastic.

said Flanery: “When it came to us via Endemol Shine, it was really only made in the Netherlands. It was an absolutely massive hit over there – the numbers it had achieved were insane. It particularly appealed to those under 40, which of course interests us. Some of the share this show had in its first series approached about 50% share in under 40 year olds.

“We were sent the entire series and we just got hooked on the show even though it was in Dutch. It was just a really fascinating new perspective on competitive reality.”

DC’s thoughtful new microbrewery Lost Generation Brewing Co. draws inspiration from great American novelists with its retro design and opening beers named after timeless literary quotes.

Tucked away off Eckington’s Metropolitan Branch Trail, this IPA and lager specialty brewery breathes new life into an old early 20th-century Nabisco factory (327 S. Street NE). The 5,000-square-foot cavernous space accommodates a speakeasy-style taproom in the front. The 30-seat bar exudes history, surrounded by original brick walls and reclaimed Douglas fir dug from beneath the floorboards.

Husband-wife duo Jared Pulliam and Anne Choe have their own stories to tell. Pulliam is a teacher-turned-brewer and ran the show at Lagunitas in the west, while Choe worked at some of the wine country’s finest restaurants.

Four packs of its “Shift” lagers, American IPA, and double IPA are sold on-site in 16-ounce cans. Krahler are also for sale.
Shot Holder/DC Beer

Lost Generation begins with a cast core of IPAs, lagers and seltzer fermented with fruit juice (strawberry lychees and mango passion fruit). There are two Kesselsauers, a tangy grapefruit gose ale and a dessert-style sour that tastes like peach a la mode. Also on tap: a wheat beer with Mandarina Bavaria hops called “Only a Sunny Smile” based on a famous line by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Other beer titles and vintage decorations like books, metal gramophones, manual typewriters, and quotes on display pay homage to the brewery’s muses: legendary writers Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and the Fitzgeralds. The unsterile brewery also gets a dose of color from a long mural by DC artist Kelly Towles.

“Lost Generation evokes themes from that era of art as well as a mix of modernity, as the notions of the lost generation are still poignant today,” says Pulliam.

Production is primarily driving the taproom, Pulliam says, with plans for “very limited” distribution. Kegs will soon be finding their way into DC and Virginia bars, notes DC beer. There’s also scope to add more silver tanks to the production facility, which is showcased behind a glass wall at the back. Stay tuned for the release date of a North German-style Pilsner.

Gertrude Stein’s famous quote – “You are all a lost generation” – is printed in large block letters on the back.

The couple have 30 years of combined restaurant and brewing experience. Pulliam started professional brewing in DC as a side hustle while he was still a public school teacher, “doing chores while I bitched,” he says.

The duo have a long-term goal of opening a brewery and taproom here in their hometown. That was a decade ago, when pioneering brewery DC Brau was pretty much the only big game in town.

“Since DC was still in the early stages of beer, we knew we had to go into one of the epicenters of brewing culture to really grow,” he says.

So they moved to California, where he landed a dream job at Lagunitas Brewing Co., managing all three brewing divisions for five years. Choe also honed her hospitality trade by working at Sonoma’s cherished Girl and the Fig and all-female cocktail bar Drawing Board.

“Petaluma wasn’t Paris, but we had to leave to grow in our own jobs and really be around people who believe in the products we love as much as we do,” he says.

A pair of “Shift” lagers at Lost Generation pays homage to Pulliam’s early morning brews at Lagunitas and its Santa Rosa sibling Moonlight, when crushing a 6 a.m. beer after work was the order of the day. Lost Generation’s Grave Shift dark lager mimics Moonlight’s best-selling book, Death and Taxes. Its crisp “Shift” counterpart is made with Tettnang and Hallertau Blanc hops (4.7 percent vol.). The strongest of the bunch is the “Feather Kitty” (8% ABV), a hazy double IPA named after one of Hemingway’s beloved cats.

When the duo returned to DC, Choe worked for the Michelin-starred Fiola and Neighborhood Restaurant Group (Bluejacket Brewery and Iron Gate). DC got its first taste of Lost Generation’s IPAs earlier this month at Snallygaster, NRG’s massive annual downtown beer festival.

Lost Generation is co-owned by Jared Pulliam (Head Brewer) and Anne Choe (General Manager).

A little further up is the popular Metropolitan Branch Trail City-State Brewing Co.’s years old plant in Edgewood. If Lost Generation’s insanely busy opening day (Saturday, October 29) was any indication, there’s a clear demand for more neighborhood breweries in the Northeast.

“We had to stop admission and start a line because we were busy for about six hours at a time,” says Pulliam.

Opening hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 4pm to 10pm and Friday to midnight; Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight; and Sundays from 11am to 10pm (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays).

Now that you can break cast cores, many rooms in the castle have opened up for you. Your next goal will be to find them Monocular Key This is how you can find the next mask, but you can also access the gallery and make your first try paint jigsaw puzzleswhich is a necessary part of the game.

After climbing the stairs in the Great Hall, go down the corridor on your right. That Hand drawn map is here on the floor and indicates that the monocular key is in a bedroom, but it is difficult to get there and you have to run away from a monster. Once in the room, wait for Michael to point out the fireplace before crouching and walking through it. In the next area you will find another “Power Amplifier”. RW variant hip flask. You can now focus on enemies to stun them with a dose of power when ammo is low and you find it necessary.

Once you make it back to the room you were trapped in, you can escape, but there are a lot of enemies outside. It’s unlikely you’ll be able to defeat them, so use your new skills to stun them and blast your way through. Refer to the hand-drawn map and your main map to get into the room with the monocular key. You can find him next to a book in the dressing room. Now that you have the Monocular Key, you can get the second one Upgrade Pistol.

Use the monocular door in the courtyard to proceed. Follow the path to get to Dimitrescu’s bedchamber. Head into the Hall of Ablution and you will find a statue puzzle. Complete it to open the passage and continue.

The dungeon you fall into is evil. In here, it’s a mostly narrow path with a few cast cores to break through while either sneaking past or fighting sculpted enemies. Standing still for too long is a death wish and you need to keep moving. While it’s high voltage, there aren’t many other avenues you can take. So as long as you keep moving forward, you’ll find him Silver Mask at the end of the dungeon. You’ll have to exit the dungeon the same way you came in while being chased by multiple enemies, so use your stun powers to make it.

Make sure to move through Dimitrescu’s bedroom when exiting and grab those snake painting. Once you return to the courtyard, you’ll find a ton of more enemies to avoid. Luckily they won’t follow you into the dining room.

Last vintage gay bar in Laguna Beach is closing – Orange County Register https://silveracce365.com/last-vintage-gay-bar-in-laguna-beach-is-closing-orange-county-register/ Fri, 21 Oct 2022 22:31:47 +0000 https://silveracce365.com/last-vintage-gay-bar-in-laguna-beach-is-closing-orange-county-register/ Laguna Beach was once a sanctuary, an oasis, a protective cocoon for men who loved men in ultra-conservative Orange County.

Laguna Beach was once a sanctuary, an oasis, a protective cocoon for men who loved men in ultra-conservative Orange County.

A whole block of South Coast Highway was home to gay bars, the most famous perhaps being the raucous Boom Boom Room, which was pouring its last drink 15 years ago as people danced on the bar and the crowd went wild. The Little Shrimp, a popular piano bar, was reborn as Woody’s and then Avila’s El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant. And on Saturday, October 22, the owners of Anchor Line Bar, aka Main Street Bar & Cabaret, are also scheduled to serve their final libations.

The Anchor Line is the last of Laguna’s vintage gay bars, a staple since 1958. Its future is bleak — it could be resurrected with new ownership and name, new design, and new zeitgeist — but the Nelson clan that almost ran it has two decades, is done.

“My brother Jimmy bought this bar 18 years ago to save what was left of gay Laguna,” said Nurse Wendy Nelson, sitting at the bar in the dim afternoon light. On the wall behind her was an “I can’t even think straight” sign.

But Jimmy Nelson died in August. Business was difficult even before COVID as Laguna’s land values ​​skyrocketed and much of the gay community moved east to the Palm Springs area. Then came pandemic-related closures and rent increases and staff conflicts and open hostilities — The bar’s windows were smashed in 2020 — and Nelson said it was just time to let go.

It feels like the end of an era. But it’s happening across the country, not just in Laguna: According to the tally, half of America’s gay bars disappeared between 2002 and 2021 Data compiled by Greggor Mattson, Professor and Chair of Sociology at Oberlin College.

Why?

Add it to the rise of virtual hangouts — it’s easy to find like-minded people online — as well as rising rents, competition for the entertainment dollar, and a growing climate of inclusion that’s making these types of physical spaces less important than they once were for LGBTQ+ people , experts say.

But much is lost if they disappear.

“Sometimes I like to think of gay bars as archives,” Mattson said. “They can be very literal archives — in their attics are the account books measuring the economic life of the community, the Pride marches and floats that were organized there, the squares of AIDS quilts sewn.

“They are also metaphorical archives containing the life experience of our elders. We are a people who are not taught our history in high schools, so often our history – especially our local history – is there. What has it been like to be LGBTQ in Orange County over the past few decades? This comes from our elders. When we lose connection with them – who are often not online as much as younger people – we lose a part of our community and our history.”

Trevor Peterson adds to the hilarity at Laguna Beach's legendary Boom Boom Room, which opened for one night on Sunday, June 25, 2017 for the grand finale of Laguna Beach's first-ever Pride week.  The venue was closed for over a decade.  (Photo by Ana Venegas, Orange County Register/SCNG)

Jordan C. Grasso, a UC Irvine graduate student in criminology, law, and society who studies the history and culture of these spaces, is skeptical of the “increasing tolerance” used to explain their decline.

“We can’t look any further than the recently proposed ‘Don’t Say Gay’ statewide law,” Grasso said via email. “In addition, more anti-LGBTQ+ laws were proposed in 2022 than any other year in recent history. Laws like these create an incredibly unsafe environment, not only for LGBTQ+ children (who are either forced to stay in the closet and develop psychological distress from internalized homophobia, or face potential abuse and harm for their coming out), but also for LGBTQ+ adults being scapegoated by the law – politicians at every turn in states like Florida and Texas, but also locally in Orange County.”

Economic reality, Grasso believes, plays a big part in the decline.

Grasso has found that gay bars are increasingly using ambiguous marketing to attract more customers in order to generate greater profits, which can be particularly problematic for queer women, who are being “doubly marginalized” by an emphasis on male-centric programming, as well as an influx of straight women, seeking shelter from the male harassment they find in regular bars.

“Every night at my research sites for my study of queer, female-centric bars and events, at least one or two people come up to me and ask, ‘Since when is this a straight bar?'” Grasso said. “So bars have a choice: open up to a wider clientele and stop being truly an LGBTQ+ bar or face financial difficulties.”

Over the past year, Grasso has spoken to several people fighting to open new gay bars for queer women and gender-segregated people in Southern California. “Even with investors, business plans and a track record of success from previous events, it’s virtually impossible to afford to lease a building, especially as gay neighborhoods are being gentrified and being bought up by more prominent investors and corporations,” Grasso said. “The buildings just cost too much money. Couple this with the growing post-pandemic inequality gap and it’s no wonder these companies aren’t staying open.”

Resistance

Historically, these places were of crucial importance. The early civil rights struggles for LGBTQ+ people were spearheaded by bar owners who insisted on the right to serve gay people.

New York had them Stonewall Uprising 1969, when New York police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village, confiscating its liquor supply and roughly dragging away guests. Six days of protests and violent clashes with law enforcement ensued, and Stonewall became a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.

Before Stonewall had Los Angeles the black cat. It was New Year’s Day 1967; Police beat guests and arrested more than a dozen people for “indecent behavior” – same-sex kissing at the start of the New Year. Peaceful protests followed around the Silver Lake Bar and resulted in the birth of The lawyerthe nation’s oldest and largest LGBT publication.

“After Stonewall, bars have often served as community centers, yes, where people found romance, but also where they found jobs, friends, and information,” Mattson said. ” ‘Where’s a gay-friendly doctor?’ ‘My relationship is in trouble, where can we find a gay-friendly marriage counselor – even though we’re not allowed to get married?’”

It’s great that people can easily find each other online, but one of the lessons COVID has taught us is the importance of having physical places to gather, Mattson said.

Grasso agrees on the importance of meeting in real time in real space. “People meet online through social media and dating sites, but they still need a safe, physical place to meet, interact and form relationships without the burden or fear of anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment and harm,” said Grasso. Every person Grasso interviewed “lighted up discussing it, walking into a gay bar for the first time…often one of the first times they feel completely at home, or at least understood and unquestioned about the love they have for others.” Experienced.”

There is hope even as the bars shrink, both Grasso and Mattson said. “Underground parties and events” are organized online, as are “pop-up parties” and “queer guerrilla bars” where people meet in an otherwise straightforward place “to show that they are at peace are there,” Mattson said.

Gay bars aren’t going away entirely, but they do need to adapt, Mattson said. Many of the old ones were “white men’s clubs,” and those that survive must appeal to the broadest reach of the LGBTQ+ community.

Formerly Anchor Line was Fleur de Lys and Bounce and Main Street Bar & Cabaret. We’ll see what it turns into next.

Tourism in Palm Springs has rebounded with a vengeance, beating pre-pandemic records for both hotel occupancy and arrivals at Palm Springs International Airport. Tourism officials say that while there are still fewer international visitors, domestic travelers have more than made up the difference.

LGBTQ travelers were among the first to return to the desert city, and they returned early and often. Palm Springs gay resorts often sell out, even on the quieter days of the week. That might sound like a good problem for the resorts, but Michael Green, who co-owns the very popular Triangle Inn with his husband Stephen Boyd, told the Bay Area Reporter he’s confident the unprecedented demand for gay resorts will soon be met with other qualities that are developed.

“Some people have said gay resorts are going away, but the exact opposite has happened,” Green said. The resort’s owner added that he hopes gay travelers won’t get frustrated and stop visiting the city because they can’t find a room in a gay hotel.

The formerly gay resorts Bearfoot Inn and La Dolce Vita were sold and closed late last year, while the downtown Canyon Club Hotel is mired in a legal battle after one of the owners died. Green said he’s confident the Descanso and Santiago owners’ plans to convert Twin Palms Resort into a gay resort would move ahead quickly to meet growing demand. The new Twin Palms is expected to open sometime next month.

Fall is in full swing in Palm Springs. The city hosted lesbian weekend The Dinah and LGBTQ film festival Cinema Diverse last month. Leather Pride in Palm Springs is from 27th to 30th October. That Desert AIDS Walk kicks off gay nightlife in Palm Springs on Saturday, October 29th at 9am from Ruth Hardy Park. Palm Springs Pride takes place November 4-6 and is highlighted by a parade this Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m. on Palm Canyon Drive at Tachevah Drive and ending at the festival’s entrance on Amado Road.

If you want to avoid the crowds, early December before the holidays is a good time to visit. The 30th Annual Palm Springs Festival of Lights will be held on Saturday, December 3 starting at 5:45 p.m. in downtown Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive between Ramon and Tachevah. Near Palm Desert, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens offers its annual spectacular light show Wild Lights from November 23rd to December 30th.

gay resorts
The Greater Palm Springs Area still boasts the gayest resorts out there. All are marketed to gay men and are optional. the newest resort, Descanso, is among the best. It’s north of downtown in the area occupied by the East Canyon Hotel and Spa, which eventually sold and became a mainstream hotel, only to return to its gay roots for its current incarnation. The property’s General Manager, Kent Taylor, has helped restore the luxury of the old East Canyon and take it to an even higher level. Hotel staff pamper guests with a premium continental breakfast, complimentary lunch, and a pantry with complimentary drinks and snacks available throughout the day.

Descanso’s sister hotel, Santiago, located south of downtown, is also known for its high-end amenities, including an expanded continental breakfast and lunch. It’s the only two-story gay resort in the city and has the largest pool and hot tubs of any resort.

The aforementioned Inn Triangle is just a few steps away from the Santiago. Green and Boyd, the longtime owners, live on the property and make guests feel like family. The mid-century modern building is a gem of the neighborhood with a beautiful front yard framing the property.

The largest cluster of gay resorts is in the Warm Sands neighborhood, about half a mile from downtown. The mainstay of Warm Sands InnDulge is owned by a gay couple, John Jackson and Sandy Miller. In addition to a continental breakfast, they host a free cocktail hour every night. Miller seems to remember everyone’s names and is great at introducing himself so all guests can get to know each other.

That Hacienda at Warm Sands in Palm Springs is a luxury property across from InnDulge and includes two pools and a hot tub. A free lunch is also included. Known for pampering guests, the resort even has a pillow menu to please even the most discerning guest.

Desert Paradise Resort Palm Springs is kitty-corner from Hacienda and is another high-end resort with steam room and dry sauna.

Vista Grande is another luxury property that includes a huge whirlpool grotto and steam room. The resort has three pools, all heated to 94 degrees, for comfortable swimming on the coolest of nights.

CCBC is the only resort in neighboring Cathedral City. At 3.5 hectares it is the largest of the gay resorts. It is also open for day passes and is particularly popular with bears. The attached Runway Bar and Restaurant serves great food and hosts live shows.

While not strictly a gay hotel, it is Trixie Motel opened in June under the ownership of RuPaul’s Drag Race alumnus Trixie Mattel (aka Brian Michael Firkus) and her husband David Silver. The motel’s renovation was featured on the Discovery+ channel. Trixie is pretty – and pink – but she’s not cheap.
