The Whole Arts Auxiliary presents an Evening with Retro Pop Culture Humorist, Charles Phoenix! The first of our Desert Dinner Series events.
The event will include:
– A Tour of the Joshua Tree Retreat Center’s Lloyd Wright designed campus
– A Charles Phoenix “Test Kitchen” inspired dinner and cocktail hour prepared by Chef Matt Blansett
– A Live comedy slide show celebrating classic and kitschy American life & style
Charles launches mid-century Americana into the stratosphere! With his keen expertise, unbridled enthusiasm, and eagle eye for odd-ball detail, he delivers a delightful slide show and tell of vintage car culture, space-age transportation, mid-century architecture, road trip discoveries, lost and found attractions, fun food experiments, and more, galore!
Be prepared for your national pride to swell, imagination to be inspired, and your spirit to soar!
Following the dinner and performance, Charles will sign copies of his last books, Holiday Jubilee and Addicted to Americana.
