Elvis Honeymoon Weekend

SUITE PRESLEY: When we think of Elvis, we may think of one of the following things: hit records, cute grins, famous hips, flowery leis, adorable hound dogs, or all of the above. But many an architecture buff thinks of a famous Palm Spring mid-century house that served as the Honeymoon Hideaway for the King and his bride Priscilla. Yep, "Honeymoon Hideaway" is capitalized; the house has become so associated with the star that that is indeed its famous handle. And over the April 29-May 1 weekend, many fans of both the singer and structures will be making for the desert.

TOURS AND TUNES: There are several house tours going down, but we're eying the tour and concert on Sunday, May 1; "Motown Soul Classics" star Bobby Brooks Hamilton will be at the mic. There's also a lunch on that ticket, too, so it is a good deal at $55. If you can't make the weekend, read more about the mid-century Ladera Circle stunner.
