New Veuve Clicquot ‘Après Swim' Fun at La Quinta

Making a splash at the desert resort's adults-only Plunge Pool? Things have gotten delightfully bubbly 'round those parts.

You've got to embrace the concept of après swim, the lounge-lovely, chill-down, sip-something-cooling stretch after taking a refreshing splash.

CHAMPAGNE FLIGHTS... to be part of the sunshine-drenched scene, as well as cocktails, too, and an assortment of bites. The time to find all of those goodies? Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, from 3 to 6 o'clock. Keep an eye out for the "roving Champagne cart," which just might roll on by your umbrella. Oh, and that umbrella you're under?

And what if you've got a bubbly bunch, as in a large to extra-large group  that does enjoy raising their glasses? The resort offers a recently introduced...

CHAMPAGNE 101 PROGRAM, complete with a Champagne specialist at the helm. Does your crew of 12 to 40 guests want to know more about tips on opening a bottle? How about storing Champagne? Best inquire about this lively new addition, one that's been created just for guests at the landmark destination.
