Don’t be jealous. This could be you, too. Tomorrow’s Craft Night at Ace Palm Springs will find us sipping Facials in the Amigo Room and playing with tissue paper, including the decoration of bathing caps to wear while lounging by the pool.

Craft Night with Ranger Joe takes over the Amigo Room once a month, melding the DIY spirit of summer camp with a cocktail party. And Ranger Joe is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Here are some pictures from last month’s Craft Night — we made macrame necklaces out of fabric, inspired by Michael Schmidt’s rope installation in the Ace Palm Springs lobby. Cotton Ball, Ranger Joe’s kitty, got the supplies ready in advance. Next week is “Ghosts of Craft Nights Past” — Ranger Joe is bringing the remains of all previous Craft Nights so you can create a beautiful frankenstein, or crazy quilt, or hodge-podge of inspiration.

Every last Wednesday, Ranger Joe hosts a boozy craft night in the desert at Ace Palm Springs. A new craft featured every month, free craft supplies, and drink specials. It’s like summer camp with a flask. And you have to share scissors, so talk to your neighbor.
Tomorrow, we’ll be making macrame necklaces with strips of fabric and actual pieces from Michael Schmidt’s rope installation in the lobby.

Craft Night with Ranger Joe : Ace Palm Springs

Ranger Joe has combined two of life’s greatest pleasures — happy hour and summer camp — to make Craft Night. Every last Wednesday, he transforms the Amigo Room into a boozy make-along, with a new craft featured every month: desert pom-pom pets, paper poppies, friendship bracelets, and paper plate masks to name a few. New Year’s Eve, it was noise-makers. And tomorrow, God’s Eyes. When was the last time you made a God’s Eye? In June, you can make necklaces with braided and macrame’d strips of fabric and be the envy of the desert.

Materials are free, and so are ghost stories. Joe only brings a few pairs of scissors, so you’ll have to share and talk to each other. This is also free. Stay tuned for a custom soundtrack from Joe’s sweetheart, Victor Rodriguez.
