Craft Beer Weekend
By Joe Martone
The Ace Hotel is one of those locations where you are guaranteed to have a good time. Crazy people, awesome music, the best pool parties outside of your childhood and plenty more reasons that would make us run out of ink. Now, the hotel has decided to kick off the month in its own grand bombastic way by doing something new: celebrating beer. A motley of microbreweries, malters and more are dropping by the hotel (20 of them, in fact) and can’t wait to sate your taste buds. Local favorites Like Stone Brewing Co. and Firestone Walker are going to be there, but there’s no time like the present to introduce your stomach to new brews. Relax, there’s more than just drinking to this weekend—every day has something special planned. Friday has a five-course meal accompanied by the amazing DJ Day while Saturday is all about BrewBQ on the Grill, surf rock band The Woodies with the ever spicy DJ Habanero and tacos! Dogfish Head will be giving out tacos to celebrate its new brew. And if the tacos don’t convince you, nothing can.
Ace Hotel, 701 E. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, 760-325-9900; www.acehotel.com. 8pm. $45 per night.
