Please Note: read the directions carefully below BEFORE you RSVP for this event. 1) You need to purchase 3 tickets in advance for this event: Meiselman Midecentury Home Tour 9 AM to 11 AM tour: Moroccan Modern from 11:30 AM to Noon: Steel & Glass Home Tour from 2 PM to 3 PM: 2) We will be carpooling from LA at 6:15 AM at the Bank of America parking lot located at 11501 Santa Monica Blvd, West Los Angeles, CA 90025 I will be renting a passenger van and we will evenly split the cost of the van and gas. I am estimating the cost will be around $25 per person. So bring at least $25 in CA$H for that. 3) Since we are leaving early in the morning, bring food and beverages so you can eat breakfast on the way to Palm Springs. We won't be having lunch until Noon that day. 4) This is an all day trip to palm Springs with multiple stops for tours and lunch. We probably won't be back in LA until some time around 7 PM or so. 5) Bring at least $25 for lunch at Felipe's Mexican restaurant. I have hosted several visits to Palm Springs for Modernism Week over the years. Some were overnight rips. Others were day trips. this year we are doing an ambitious itinerary that requires us to wake up at the crack of dawn and leave to catch our first tour at 9 AM. Most of the tours we gone in in prior years have been a lot of fun, so I'm hoping we will experience that again in this day trip. So come join me for a FULL day or Modernism architectural delight and a Mexican lunch at Palm Springs!

What we're about

Public Group

Time to tempt your palate with all the pleasurable flavors that LA, and beyond, has to offer!

Join Pleasure Palate as we do culinary adventures exploring of restaurants (both high-end & holes-in-the-wall), food & beverage tastings, and more. From savory to sweet, spicy to tangy, ethnic to All-American, we'll taste it all! Come along and let us take your taste buds on the ride of their life!

Because we want to burn off some of the calories that we eat, many of our events will have both a dining and physical activity paired together. We do many day trips and weekend adventures that combine the best of both dining and experiencing what LA, SoCal and beyond has to offer in terms of dining options and points of interests.

Pleasure Palate has been around for over 7 years now and in that time we have had over 1,800 events. We offer at least 8 events per month for our members to choose from. This is a very active MeetUp group.

We will focus on various aspects of urban, suburban and rural life, ranging from architectural to cultural, historical to quirky and/or a combination of any of the above to help give you a better appreciation of where we live. Oh, and bring your camera because we encourage all our members to take photos and share their experiences with us on the event pages.

MeetUp charges $180 each year to maintain the Pleasure Palate site. In addition, it costs a lot of money to maintain memberships to historical societies, newspaper and magazine subscriptions - all to get ideas for future events. So we ask for a voluntary $6.00 annual donation to help defray the costs that MeetUp charges.
