We’ve put together some fun and relaxing options for activities while you’re making the most of your getaway to the sunny Palm Desert.

1. Fabulous Bingo at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club

Who says Bingo is for retirement homes? Every Monday night at 7:00 PM in the fashionable Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, crowds gather just to get a chance to fill out their cards at an exciting night of drinks, music, comedy, and dancing. The festivities are hosted by Shirley Claire, a former Palm Springs Follies charmer and recent star of America’s Got Talent. This isn’t your grandma’s Bingo night.

2. Palm Springs Art Museum and Desert X

Art blooms in the desert — if you’re feeling like you need some culture after all the business talk, check out the Palm Springs Art Museum, where you can peruse their extensive collection and interactive sculpture garden. The sprawling Desert X exhibit that covered an entire valley in art works is now finished until 2019, but you can still see Jeffrey Gibson’s “ALIVE” from the street outside the Palm Springs Art Museum, and Armando Lerma’s “La Fiesta en El Desierto” can be seen at 85963 Grapefruit Blvd in Coachella, CA.

3. Dinner with Kustomer!

We like to eat, you like to eat — why not eat together? Request an invite to one of our eTail dinners here and break bread with us in person! To set up a meeting at eTail, contact us here.

4. See the Flamingos!

The grounds of the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert are lush and full of life, but are perhaps most famous for the 30 Chilean flamingos on the premises. Due to all the attention they’ve received, the flamingos have become quite friendly — and will even caw in greeting when you approach.

5. Eat at In-N-Out Burger

Sometimes you just need a good burger, and In-N-Out is about a good a place as any to satisfy your craving. Maybe not as big a deal for any West Coast delegates, but for everyone else, definitely worth the trip for their freshly-prepared fries, shakes, and multi-patty delicacies. Don’t forget the secret menu, and always go Animal Style.

You’re sure to learn a lot at eTail, but don’t forget to enjoy yourself. And, if you start getting tired out, stop by Kustomer’s booth on the exhibit hall for a free and refreshing iced coffee — just the pick-me-up you’re going to need.
