the polaroid portraits taken by roger are now up on aldo’d flickr account. please check it out! i think he managed to get every single guest! amazing…



uh oh



rain, rain, go away, come again some other freakin’ day!!


isn’t there an old wives tale that it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day?

“isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?”




just a reminder: the ace hotel requests that only guests staying at the hotel use the parking lots. for those just visiting for the day, there is plenty of street parking surrounding the grounds of the hotel on south camino real, calle palo fiero, and east twin palms drive.

thanksgiving dinner plans

hello friends and family. since many of you are coming into town, please note that we are planning to have thanksgiving dinner at the ace hotel.


the blacksheep thanksgiving will take place at the king’s highway restaurant from 3-11. they are serving a pretty traditional turkey day meal all day long for $24; they also have a 3-course dinner including soup or salad and desert for $40. it might be nice to hang out, break bread, and give some thanks before the big event!

aldo and i will be dining at 4:00 pm. we have made reservations for a few folks already as part of the rehearsal dinner (they have been emailed directly). for the rest of you, we didn’t know your plans or itineraries! if you would like to eat there too, call 760.325.9900 to make your reservations soon!

wedding weekend: sunday night drag show

for those of us lucky enough to remain in palm springs on sunday night, please join us for a drag show at toucan’s! we will be catching the 8pm show.

the lineup for that night will be as follows: Tommi Rose, Delta Work (rupaul’s drag race alumnus), Laganja Estranja (we saw her perform at hamburger mary’s long beach and aldo fell in love with her; sean not so much), Eddie De Barr.

wedding weekend: the aerial tramway!


for those of you who will still be in palm springs on saturday, please consider joining us for a ride on the aerial tramway! we will be taking a trip up the mountain for a fun day of hiking, and soaking up the scenery and views.

we plan to meet at the aerial tramway station at noon. expect to be back down the mountain around 5 pm, but you are free to leave at any time or stay however long you want. (the last tram down is 9:45!) 

be forewarned: it will be cold up there, usually 20 degrees colder than in the city. for example, the high today was 52 degrees.

the roundtrip costs $23.95 for adults, $16.95 for those between 3-12, and seniors (62+) are $21.95.
