Though in the Valley we won’t see the drastic transformation foliage in other parts of the county undergoes this time of year, we will certainly enjoy the cooler weather that comes along with autumn.

And in our opinion, the best way to spend fall nights in the desert is outdoors, under the stars.

Our new favorite Valley resort, Mountain Shadows, is giving you the perfect excuse to spend the night outside, and in luxury.

This Wednesday, October 18, the resort is hosting a Rooftop Cigar Dinner, featuring hand-picked Joy de Nicaragua cigars from Drew Estate Cigars.

Following sunset, guests are in for a treat — a night of luxury and relaxation in the stunning desert eve.

Not only will there be some of the finest cigars to choose from and enjoy, there will also be a variety of Cuban-inspired dishes, as well as bourbon cocktail pairings.
