3) Groove & Eat
Sway to the beat of live music at the legendary Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, a dusty desert roadhouse that has been host to such internationally known musicians as Robert Plant and Vampire Weekend. Try mesquite barbecue and garlic mashed potatoes while basking in the sounds of soulful tunes.
