MAKE ME LAUGH

Kathy Griffin Brings Her Mom Along for Desert Stop
Kathy Griffin is hard working, award-winning and yet senses there is still a glass ceiling for female comedians to crack - late-night television. She'll have plenty of topical things to say during her June 6-7 shows at the Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Rancho Mirage.

ART IS JUST A CLICK AWAY

Fariad Uses YouTube to Reach Worldwide Audience
Fariad, who will be the featured speaker at the Plein Art Festival, June 6-8, in Idyllwild, has made a point of videotaping nearly every piece of artwork he creates. He posts the video with music on YouTube to expand his potential customer base.

LIVE MUSIC

America Continues to Resonate After Four Decades
Some of their most memorable songs came from the 1970's, but their relevance is still being felt today. Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley are two-thirds of the original band, and they continue to tour including a June 7 stop at Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella.

Air Supply Takes Your Breath Away
From an Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar, Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met and formed the band that would go on to be inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame in 2013. See them June 7 at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula.

Piano Like it's Meant to be Played
The Virginia Waring Piano Competition will hold a recital featuring the talents of Allison To (pictured at right), a 2011 Junior Prize winner when she was only 10 years old. See how much this pianist has matured June 6 at the Joslyn Center in Palm Desert.

HOT WEATHER, COOL MEALS

Appetito Cal-Italian Deli Shares Grilled Peach Salad Recipe
When triple digit temperatures return the last thing you want to feel is bloated from a heavy meal. Salads offer a great alternative, and Appetito shares a Grilled Peach Spinach Salad recipe on VIDEO that you can try at home.

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

Discover the Dinosaurs Features More Than 60 Interactive Exhibits
The Palm Springs Convention Center will look more like Jurassic Park, June 7-8, with animated dinosaurs roaming the ballrooms. Perfect for a family outing and combines entertainment and education to make it interesting for adults.

Science Can Be Fun
Professor Smart and Ms. Knowitall make this production interactive and entertaining while touching on physics concepts featuring stunning lighting, illusions, scenery. See these theatrically based experiments and demonstrations June 7 (2 shows) at the Annenberg Theater in Palm Springs.

WHERE THE STARS COME OUT

A Magical Night on Broadway
Here's a show featuring potential stars of tomorrow, the students at Musical Theatre University, combining with Broadway stars Alix Korey (at right), Sal Mistretta, and Pam Trotter in a musical review with songs from all of your favorite Broadway plays, like Wicked, Fiddler on the Roof, Bye Bye Birdie, Rent, and The Book of Mormon.
