After going to Joshua Tree yesterday we stopped at Pappy and Harriet’s for dinner, an awesome barbeque and music joint, which actually is in Pioneertown, about half-way between Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. We just stayed for dinner (so so yummy!) and a beer, and then headed back to Palm Springs. When we woke up the next morning, we decided we’d go back and actually really check out Pioneertown.
Pioneertown is a town build as a movie set back in the 1940s, but not as just a facade, also as a place the actors could live. Now it houses stores and art studios, and from April through October they have wild-west reenactments and fake gunfights. Like Joshua Tree I kept thinking I’d love for the kids to see it, but it’s fun for adults as well. And we enjoyed another fabulous meal at Pappy & Harriet’s. Lucky us!
