On Being Mentioned in New York Magazine

A few days ago I received a Tweet from one of the tourism groups here in Palm Springs informing me I had been mentioned in an article about Palm Springs in New York Magazine. I clicked through to the article which was geared toward New Yorkers considering a visit to our fair desert community.
The article teaser headline was featured on the home page of the New York Magazine website. In all honesty I hadn't visited the in quite awhile, so I took some time to reacquaint myself with their format. News, food, theatre, travel, home...all the usual sections in a publication for a thriving mega metropolis like New York. Being a former New Yorker, I used to read New York Magazine regularly but as I've been gone (as a resident) for over 20 years I lost the habit of reading their publication. Needless to say, I was delighted to find how much I enjoyed reading their site. Now that I've book-marked it, I can regularly keep up with all the terrific features they run.
Of course I visit NY regularly so it is nice to have some inside scoop and info. Anyway, lo-and-behold I found the article entitled "Get Lost in Palm Springs" by By Carrie Nieman Culpepper and read through it in great detail. I was delighted to see she featured one of the newest hotels in town, The Saguro which only just opened after an extensive renovation of a former property brand at that location. The writer does a nice job offering a broad range of tips and suggestions on what to do here in Palm Springs. From where to stay, where to eat and what to do there are plenty of tips to get someone started. She also-- quite generously mentions yours truly, this very blog as follows: "Find out what celebs have been in town recently on local radio host Rick Rockhill’s Palm Springs Savant." It was a very nice treat and pleasant surprise to be mentioned in her article. So to Ms.Carrie Nieman Culpepper, should you read this post, I say "thank you" for the very kind mention. You just gained one more reader :-)

That lady definitely used her smarts and excellent taste in mentioning you in her article! Now, the neat thing for me -in reading this post and your remarks about the article -I didn't know you have a radio program!!! That's pretty cool too and makes me wish I lived in an area within range of your broadcasts so I could then listen to you too!
