The Desert Showdown (formerly the Desert Smash) was a happening place to be this year. Like last year, I was able to attend the event and was entertained from the moment I got there until the moment I left. This year’s event came with a new name along with several other notable changes. The first was that the event expanded into two days to include both golf and tennis events. Will Ferrell was the host this year to keep everyone and anyone entertained throughout the event. The tennis event featured a pro am tournament in the morning (with the participants receiving a goody bag from Tennis Warehouse!) and then an exhibition in the afternoon at the beautiful La Quinta Resort.
