Well, we'll be in town for the show. So far we have booked our tour of the Frey House and are lining up some activities for LA. I have my fingers crossed on a particulary interesting accomodation (more on that later...)

Sure, we'd enjoy meeting up with folks somewhere in PS. We are popping into town on Sunday so if that works with anyone we're game.

And by the way, I will be conducting the double-decker bus architecture tours on Sunday the 17th:



And don't forget to see the exhibition: Julius Shulman: Palm Springs at the Palm Springs Art Museum:

Due to monetary reasons (i.e., I have none) I'll probably be driving out for the day on Sat. the 16th. Not being able to stay for all of the extras bums me out to no end. :(

Pics from last years show here:

LV carpool to PS

Postby jenniezane » Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:33 am

We are going to head out on our own since we can only be there Saturday - Sunday. Thanks for the offer!

Do we know what planned group events are happening for Saturday and Sunday yet? Any news on the Saturday night party? We definitely want to do the bus tour on Sunday.

I'd suggest Melvyn's at the Ingleside Inn. It's about the only place left where Palm Springs "old timers" hang out. Quite a hoot!



Unfortunately, their site uses frames, so you will have to navigate to the Melvyns page.

In case anyone is still looking for a place to stay during Modernism Week, I have an amazing house available for rent.

Its has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

If two couples rent it, it would be cheaper than a hotel.
And, you'd have a private pool to boot.

They've done a really nice job of restoring the rooms at L'Horizon, the old name which I still prefer. It's really a great property with lots of greenspace and a great view of the mountains.

Haven't stayed there since the renovation, but stayed there before and it was very nice.

Well, we have our airline tickets and a free place to stay. We are blowing this blizzard and heading for the desert. So sign us up for drinks on Saturday. Maybe I will see some of you on the bus tour on Sunday!

Lately it's been mostly in the 60's during the day. Lows in the 50's. Lots of rain last weekend, but none since.

We've had a lot of weather (and I hate weather), so it's best to bring a variety of clothes. Or shop at the thrift stores!

Modernism and Schindler

Postby ch » Sat Feb 02, 2008 3:56 pm

I am totally psyched. I stumbled upon a Rudolph Schindler designed house in Studio City (Roth House) which can rented short term. After Modernism, we are heading to LA and will be staying there for a week. Between visiting the Frey House and this, I will be in architectural heaven...
