The Monkey Tree Hotel - Host of the latest wedding industry mixer for Greater Palm Springs Wedding Association.

As a Palm Springs event venue it's important to make sure vendors and/or clients looking for cool and unique venues know we are here and ready to support their vision. One great way to do this is by attending industry related mixers like those The Greater Palm Springs Wedding Association and the Wedding Warriors produce on a regular basis.

One of the first people I met at this mixer was Tiana Hartsten of Republic of Music, Inc. She had just joined Greater Palm Springs Wedding Association. Her company, based in San Diego is an all around music and entertainment service. The other two lovely ladies are stylists! My bad for not getting their cards, but they were super fun!

Since I met Tiana and friends in the bar line, we all enjoyed a BuzzBox flight tasting of all their fun cocktails in a box. They were all very tasty and seem like a perfect alternative when you want a more casual bar, but still want classic cocktails! After tasting the flight of eight cocktail options, the Mojito became my cocktail for the duration of the mixer.

The mixer was held on the lovely grounds of The Monkey Tree Hotel. This is one of many charming small resorts, inns, and hotels dotted all over the greater Palm Springs area. Like all the small resorts, inns, and hotels, The Monkey Tree challenge is limited to the noise level and length of time they can host events in their outside spaces. TheBank Palm Springs is the perfect partner for these quaint lodging options. Wedding parties can buy out the entire space for their special weekend, and then plan their wedding and reception at TheBank- WHERE THEY CAN PARTY INTO THE WEE MORNING HOURS WITH NO LIMITATIONS!

The great thing about the many charming inns, resorts, and hotels is how close they are to everything in Palm Springs. Imagine a day of celebrations followed by sinking into this comfy bed for a relaxing sleep before the celebration starts up again the next day.

As much as I enjoyed this amazing mixer, including the many new services I connected with: the fun Buzzbox tasting, touring several of the suites offered, I still couldn't bring myself to open one of these... but hey, it's not about what I enjoy, but helping our wedding, social, and corporate events have the time of their lives, and if that includes Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, then SO BE IT!
