On the third episode of Bill Simmons’s podcast, Simmons had former Grantland movie critic Wesley Morris on. They talked about movies in a particularly Simmonsy way (there was an extended De Niro vs. Pacino passage), and, more intriguingly, got onto the topic of Simmons’s rise and fall at Grantland. The host had sharp words for ESPN, claiming that they never pushed traffic his way and that the site was chronically understaffed.

Great little hideaway resort just a block west of Downtown Palm Springs' main drag. Self-contained villas have everything you need for a home-like feel. This is a rebranding/new ownership from the previous Viceroy and there's still some updating that can be done, but you won't have too many complaints should you decide on a getaway to the Avalon.
It's beer and waffles as a staple, so you can't go wrong. The added ingredients and other menu items are fresh/organic, so they have a clean taste rather than being cheap and oily. There are TVs, but it's not a sports bar.
Don't let the lines scare you - they staff accordingly, so it moves faster than you might expect. At the same time, don't stop in if you just need to pick up something quickly. You'll have to go to the separate shop for wine as it's not connected here.
The burger can be average, but sometimes it's much more than decent, especially when they crisp up the bacon real nice and chop it up before putting it on top of your cheeseburger. The pasta will hold you over and the sweets are a good portion of sugary goodness.
