The annual Dining Out for Life fundraiser for AIDS and HIV support services returns to the Palm Springs area tomorrow (April 24).
More than 40 restaurants are participating this year.
The concept is simple: All you have to do is dine out at any of the participating restaurants on that day. The restaurants donate a portion of your meal — anywhere from a generous 33% to a staggering 75%, depending on the restaurant — to a designated AIDS service organization.
In Palm Springs, that means Desert AIDS Project.
A new Juice It Up! has opened in La Quinta, and the location will be celebrating its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday (February 22).

OK, so it’s been open a couple of weeks, but the last time we drove past a little over a month ago, it still hadn’t opened.
“It” is the Cabazon In-N-Out Burger.
So, whether you’re heading to the outlets or to Morongo Casino and Cabazon is your destination, or you’re heading further east (the Date Festival is on through this weekend), you’ve got another option for food along the way.
