Join us for a self-guided driving tour of this year’s Desert X art installations around our Coachella Valley, then rendez-vous for a shady outdoor and safely-distanced LUNCH at the fabulous Eight4Nine restaurant in Palm Springs… with  reserved Alfas-only parking in their adjacent private parking lot!
Save the date: Tuesday, April 27, 2021!  Potenza, 9am, Finale, 1pm.
We’ll meet at 9am at the first art installation at the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce, then follow a self-guided loop tour (download the Desert X app to your iphone or Android for driving directions and more), stopping at Installations 2 (Sarabia), 3 (Amer), 4 (Kawade) [requires a 15 minute walk to the installation], 5 (Alghamdi), 6 (Simmons), 7 (Clotty), and 8 (Galinin)… and then meet up again in the nearby parking lot of the Palm Springs Visitors’ Center before the short drive to the Eight4Nine restaurant for an early lunch!  The event should end about 1pm.
More info: see the websites of DesertX and Eight4Nine.
Reservations are required, so let us know the number in your party who will be joining us for lunch – no later than 5pm on April 23, please.  RSVP directly to Charlie Schwartz:
