May is National Stroke Awareness Month and the help the cause, this week Trio Restaurant has been donating 10% of lunch and dinner proceeds to the Stroke Recovery Center in Palm Springs.
OK, so the week is more than half over, but the fundraiser continues through Sunday (May 19), so you’ve got all weekend to enjoy some great food and help support (and if you’re quick, you can still catch tonight’s prix fixe!).
Trio is at 707 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs. Click here for reservations.

Tamale lovers…the annual Indio International Tamale Festival is this weekend (December 1 and 2).
The event, which has become a Dine 909 tradition in the last couple of years (usually in conjunction with Saturday’s Palm Springs Festival of Lights parade), runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The festival location is bounded by Miles Avenue on the north, Requa Avenue on the South, Towne Street on the west and Smurr Street on the east.
It’s definitely a trek for most of the Inland Empire, but it’s worth a visit at least once to see the variety of tamales sold at the festival, including seasonal flavors like pumpkin.
It’s not all about the tamales. There are other food vendors, too.
There’s also a parade (Saturday at 10 a.m.), lots of entertainment (including War, 4:30 p.m. on Sunday), tamale-eating contests (Saturday), carnival rides and more at the free event.
