Hit the desert for 'No Reservations' premiere party

Attention, all Tony Bourdain fans: The ever hip Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs hosts a "No Reservations" premiere party on Monday at 8 p.m. The screening is free, plus there will be live music from the Joshua Tree Army Band and Gram Rabbit. Drinks galore too. For that night and the day before and after, rooms are 20% off by reserving with the code NORESERVE.

Why all the excitement? The episode features the funky Pioneertown honky tonk Pappy and Harriet’s. If you don't know it, you should.

Sounds like fun -- if you can take the desert heat.

701 E. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, (760) 325-9900, www.acehotel.com/palmsprings.
