As the desert’s premier weekly publication for all things local, Coachella Valley Weekly exists for one reason: you, our readers. And that’s why we want to meet you! We’re hosting mixers and music events across the valley this summer, plus we have some exciting meet ups in the works this fall.
During the summer, CV Weekly is hosting monthly mixers at some of the desert’s best restaurants and bars as part of our “Summer Series Mixers.” Not only do we want our readers to have a chance to meet the CV Weekly staff, but we want to treat you to some great prizes, too! Join us tonight, July 12th, for our second Summer Series mixer at Dickie O’Neal’s in Palm Springs. Come grab a drink with the CV Weekly staff, enjoy some great food, enter to win our raffle prizes and enjoy a live performance by Michael Keeth. You’re not going to want to miss this event!
Last month, we kicked off our Summer Mixer Series at Charli Marrone’s Bar & Grill in Indio. Over 200 people attended our inaugural mixer, which included live performances by local musicians such as Josh Heinz, Johnny Elsewhere and Sara Groban, a speed dating event hosted by Red Hot Date and, of course, some fabulous food and drink specials courtesy of Charli herself.
We also gave away some fantastic raffle prizes thanks to our gracious sponsors, including spa packages, tattoo work and a Davidson steel string guitar donated by Musician’s Outlet in Palm Desert. Did you miss out? Don’t worry, we’re doing it all again tonight at Dickie O’Neal’s!
Can’t make tonight’s mixer? Save the date for our next event! On August 9th, CV Weekly will host its 3rd Summer Series mixer at Neil’s Lounge in Indio. Grab a cold one, enjoy Western Grill’s $5 menu and join us for a karaoke contest! Rumor has it the CV Weekly staff might step up to the karaoke mic, but the real entertainment will be provided by local favorites JeKKeL, who will perform.
And we’re just getting started! Metalheads, join us on Monday, July 23rd at Plan B Entertainment in Thousand Palms for CV Weekly’s first “Monday Metal Madness,” featuring Remnants of Man, Sangre and the long-awaited return of Perishment.
In the fall, CV Weekly will present mixers at the Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells and the Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage. Be sure to like us on Facebook for updates on all of CV Weekly’s upcoming events.
