I will look for your tent!!
Sureshs, our group will be there M/T/W (second and third round).
Of course! Palm Springs is a little far away if you are staying at the Esmerelda. I have a ton of recommendations and hopefully some will meet your needs. In La Quinta, there is a great sushi restaurant, Okura Sushi, Mexican restaurant, Las Casuelas Quinta, and steakhouse, LG's Prime Steakhouse. In Palm Desert, I would recommend seafood restuarant Pacifica Seafood, the island vibe of Tommy Bahama's, and California cuisine from Cork Tree. Indian Wells is pretty small and not many restaurants. A lot of the really good restaurants are located in the hotels like Esmerelda, Miramonte, and Hyatt.

Hope that helps! Please feel free to ask any more questions!
