2nd Date 4.25.2011

This last weekend I was in Palm Desert for my dad’s 75th birthday party, so besides lots of great food and fun I visited the famous Shield’s Date Garden. It was my second time there, the establishment is best described as old school, and that is what makes it a must when I am in the La Quinta area. It has been around since 1924, and they have kept it the same, the signage and colors of the front grab your attention from blocks away. Their dates are very famous and they also happen to have a cafe that is the best breakfast spot in town… so, ya. that is why this place rocks! If you go, do not leave with out buying a date crystal milkshake, or else.

About Todd Templeman

I am a product and fashion stylist in Portland OR. But more than that, I love to eat. I love what it makes me think about, or even see. I love that food brings family and friends to your door, or can be your best friend on a lonely night. I love all the aspects that surround great food, and my blog will contain a cross section of the food related happenings in my life and the world around me. Enjoy...
