Patty Parties with the Stars and Cars at Coachella

Shad_Balch_JustDrive_Coachella_2015I was delighted again to receive a very exclusive invitation from Shad Balch, his arm picture with his #JustDrive Tattoo, to the #LoveDriveVibe Chevrolet Performance Cars Pool Party during the Coachella Music Festival. This Chevrolet_MacDonals_BootsyBellows_Coachella_2015haute party was held at the Bootsy Bellows Estate, also sponsored by McDonalds again, the first weekend of the 2015 Coachella Valley Music Festival in Indio. This year’s festival features AC/DC, Drake, Jack White and more than 160 other acts.

This star studded party featuring Chevrolet's Corvette and Camaro Paris_Hilton_Coachella_2015performance vehicles, included selfie photo op booths and selfie sticks and was entirely too fun! The music, food and pool antics created quite a celebrity buzz with stars in attendance like Paris Hilton, Chris Brown,Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner, the 19-year-old "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star.

Chris_Brown_Coachella_2015What did I think of the Chevrolet performance vehicles at the #LoveDriveVibe party? Gorgeous and playful in this very hip rockin' setting. There was a booth with a Camaro in a racing "winner's circle", champagne and all, to shake and spray all over! Kudos to Chevrolet for showing how youthful, cool and fun the Chevrolet brand can be!

This #Carchella party fare included libations from McDonald’s and Absolute Fergie_BlackEyePeas_Coachella_2015Vodka and ended on a very high note with Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas making a special stage appearance with rapper 2 ChainZ.

From Wikipedia: The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly referred to as Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire's Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. It was founded by Corvette_Coachella_2015Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent; a smaller Oasis Dome was used in 2006 and 2011, while a new Yuma stage was introduced in 2013.

5 Tips to Bring Home a Fresh Holiday Tree

Cars-to-Bring-Home-A-Christmas-Tree-Thinkstock_87795586No matter which winter celebration you enjoy -- or what you call that conifer that so often adorns homes during this time of year -- the lots are open on every corner, which means you’re likely to be bringing one of them home for the holidays.

According to Wikipedia, the American origins of the Christmas Tree vary, but ever since German settlers first introduced them to the U.S. in the early 1800s, the evergreen spruce, pine, or fir (three of the most popular holiday choices) have come to symbolize the spirit of the season.

Deja Fuel Multi-Gas Tech from the 80s Makes a Comeback in Chevy Impala

2015_Chevrolet_Impala-Bi-Fuel-001-frontviewBy Derek Handova

Those of us who were children of the 1980s and had a Midwestern experience at some point might remember multi-fuel-capable GM trucks. The one summer that I spent working a seasonal job in Colorado, there was another employee from Nebraska who had a Chevy pickup modified to run on gasoline and propane. The details of how the air-fuel mix was adjusted for switchover escape me, but the concept was to save money at the pump and extend overall range. In the Eighties, it was a long way between service stations in western Nebraska.
