8/8/11 -- Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree with Anthony Bourdain of No Reservations

Joshua Tree Country Kitchen

Known as the best greasy-spoon diner in Joshua Tree, the Country Kitchen is the place where you can get a hangover-fix after a night of partying in the desert.

Lord Fletcher’s

Try the prime rib at Lord Fletcher’s…served up in a dining room covered in Old English artifacts.
70385 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270


Pappy and Harriet’s

A true roadhouse in the middle of the desert, this spot serves up live music and great food.

Best show I have ever seen on a unique area, where hipsters hang with desert derelicts.

The San Bernardinos had snow covering its peaks. Must have been February or March of this year.

Caught that eposode...



...was interesting, although Bourdain's (producers) editing leads me astray at times...

We went to see him on stage, to give one of his 'talks' when he was in Sacto a while back - there was a good turnout, but I was a bit disappointed in his presentation - most of his stories were interesting, but not really all that organized, IMHO...Can't put my finger on it, but he comes off as a bit of an elitist...perhaps a bit more 'work' on his personal appearances to large groups...he works alone, without any assistants, I understand, and it shows...just my two cents worth...

It is fun to see some of the off-beat places he visits on his shows...




According to my clock...anytime is 'BAJA TIME' & as Jimmy Buffett says,
"It doesn't use numbers or moving hands It always just says now..."
