It’s Friday. You’ve almost made it through another work week that has been filled with requests, uncertainty, continuing threats of Covid, and, hopefully, some feelings of accomplishment. And if the week just sucked, then know that the weekend’s embrace is almost here.

Desperately In Need of a Palm Springs Staycation? We hear you.
Ready for a Palm Springs Weekend? Omicron is making travel a challenge, again, but if you need to get out of Los Angeles for a couple of days to keep yourself from screaming, we understand.
