Googie Palm Springs

We're in Indian Wells this week on business/pleasure. While I consider myself somewhat of a desert rat, there is also the attraction of the Googie style so evident in the area around Palm Springs.

Googie is a style of architecture that thrived in the 1950s and early 1960s. Think boomerangs, satellites, brushed aluminum and neon. Cool dude.

We had to split the week into two parts so Andy could make a basketball game in the summer league (Go COUGARS!). It also helped me keep from replacing my sweat with Mojitos. Sherry has the unfortunate business part of the trip, but evenings have been free for dancing, sushi and shopping.
