A variety of budget hotels are about 8 miles away in Indio and the Embassy Suites in La Quinta is 9 miles away.

Attendees will be responsible for bringing their own food and refreshments.  It is our hope we can develop a form of Tailgate breakfast format when people make their own breakfasts and those with culinary desires can cook a bit more to share and display their expertise.
