When I got a call from my boss a few months ago that I was going to get to go to Dinah Shore Weekend, I was absolutely ecstatic. Dinah Shore is THE lesbian event of the entire circuit party season, in the beautiful city of Palm Springs. I had been working on promoting Dinah Shore for a while and the best part was to come- I was lucky enough to experience this incredible event first hand with a legendary lineup of celebrities, lesbians from all over the world, and the best hotel I have ever stayed at.
My friends and I arrived to the Random Haus in Palm Springs to a delightful spread of inviting décor, beautiful architecture, and incredible views. From the outside this property looks like a very tastefully designed retro motel complete with cabanas, a pool with lounge chairs, misters, and the best party music pulsing from the speakers to make for an incredible and relaxing atmosphere. Inside our suite, The Hunter, we were welcomed to luxurious rooms, a full kitchen and living room area, and a gorgeous patio with incredible water features and a full blown koi pond! The staff at the Random Haus was extremely welcoming and accommodating, showing us around the entire property and making sure we were well taken care of.
Our stay at the Random Haus was just the cherry on top of an amazing weekend. Our first Dinah event was the Wet and Wild pool party at the Hilton Hotel pool. This pool party was completely off the hook, featuring incredible DJ’s, go-go dancers, and plenty of great people watching. We spend a great chunk of time mingling with the other guests, soaking up the incredible Palm Springs sun, and getting our fix of this lesbian circuit party. Our weekend continued with more laying poolside at the beautiful Random Haus property where I met some of my new favorite friends! We completely hit it off with the three gay boys staying next door and probably spent more time hanging out with them than with the lesbians!
The next stop on our tour of Palm Springs was the Monte Carlo party at the Palm Springs Convention Center which is an absolutely stunning venue with impressive architecture and ambience perfect for the high energy of Dinah Shore. The celebrity red carpet was so glamorous and fancy which was such a great welcome to the event. The Monte Carlo party also featured poker tables, concerts all night, and DJ’s keeping the dance floor hopping til the wee hours of the morning. We woke up the next day to yet another incredible pool party at the Hilton and then the closing party at the Zoso Hotel. This venue was also extremely glamorous and beautiful with a great outdoor pool and lounge area, hotel suites, and ballroom dance party venue.
I am proud and honored to say that I am no longer a Dinah Shore Weekend virgin! This incredible weekend has been one of the best in my life and I will always remember this glorious initiation into the professional lesbian partying community. Never before have I experienced such an empowering pro-women event with great accommodations and incredible friends along the way!
