The Lowdown: What may look like ordinary storefronts throughout the Coachella Valley are just a little bit more than that.

I headed out to the Cathedral City location (which is right by Zobo and Meester’s – good news if you like rad food like Guy Fieri).  As I approached I noticed a television and literally nothing else.

A older television and literally nothing else inside the storefront that is Wormhole

The television is broadcasting what appears to be another location.

There is also a sign promoting another Wormhole location:

Wormhole, ladies and gents!  Enjoy.

Update: I just dropped by the Indian Wells location (which, hey Eureka! is nearby – and on out list of the best spots to drink in Indian Wells – so, yeah, there was a whiskey and burger involved), and it’s just as, ummm, impressive?

The store looked very similar to the image on the screen at the Cathedral City location and so it would appear that if I were to travel next to the Indio spot, it would look like the storefront on the TV at this location.


We would love to see your photos of Wormhole. Be sure to post them in the comments below – and check out our guide to all of the Desert X installations here.
