Thrill of the Chill

Azucena’s in Cathedral City offers a brilliant array of raspados,. When temperatures soar in the Coachella Valley, Indio resident Misael Torres drops by his favorite local raspaderia, Raspados Esmeralda, for a chocolate shaved ice. For Torres, the treat does more than counter the desert’s July heat — it’s a way for him to recall his childhood. “When I was little, I’d only have, like, 5 pesos,” Torres recalls. “And I’d run and get a raspado.”

Essential LGBTQ Bars and Dance Clubs to Visit in Palm Springs

Palm Springs first rose as a high-end luxury escape in the 1930s, when silver screen actress Greta Garbo vacationed there with her rumored lover, writer Mercedes de Acosta. As the decades wore on, public figures like Rock Hudson, Liberace, and Cary Grant also sought solace in the desert to escape public scrutiny. There’s little doubt that the resort city’s evolution into a haven for LGBTQ nightlife was in direct response to some of these early entrants. Nowadays, there are hundreds of LGBTQ-owned businesses and almost half of the population identifies as a member of the community. The city even has the nation’s first all-LGBTQ City Council.
