Palm Springs parties in the street at VillageFest
If you're like me, you sometimes say to yourself, "I'm bored. I wonder where I can pet a pig, feed a horse, eat plantains, buy fresh dates, ask a rabbi a question, listen to street musicians, get my fortune read, apply flip-flop heel balm, walk among a crowd of thousands and drink lemonade?" Luckily, I can do all of that — and get a jump on the weekend — in Palm Springs, where VillageFest takes place from 6-10 p.m. every Thursday from October through May (7-10 p.m. June-September) on Palm Canyon Drive between Baristo and Amado roads. The tab: A queen bed at Caliente Tropics is about $130, depending on the season, and dinner for two can be had from VillageFest street vendors for less than $20.
