palm springs weekend

spent the weekend in palm springs - a hazy, hot and humid weekend in the desert, punctuated by flash floods on the drive home. despite that, it was a great weekend - stayed in the coolest bungalows with great little touches - mid-century modern furniture, ipod stereos, louis prima CDs. and in one weekend was able to pack in some gambling, drinks at the viceroy, siteseeing, swimming, sleeping and just generally enjoying the break from LA. some pics:


there were just 6 bungalows at the desert star. very cozy.



view of the hills from the pool.


the stewart williams-designed City National Bank, 1957
now a washington mutual.


the cabazon dinosaurs, made famous in Pee Wees Big Adventure.
Large Marge sent me.


our blackjack winnings. we're high rollers. aw yeah.

Great pictures of Palm Springs. You can't beat Palm Springs for mid-century modernism. Wouldn't it be incredible to be able to stay in Frank Sinatra's old place?

And by the way, thanks for the link to Los Angeles Time Machines, www.latimemachines.com. I've put a mutual link on my link page as well. Keep up the great work.
