No. Maybe a pop up or food truck.
Keep in mind that nothing can stay open in San Diego, which is much more popular

If anyone wants I have credit for these houses which are within walking distance to Chabad of Palm Springs, and can provide a discount off of the listed rates.

A private house with a pool in a walled in backyard, kitchen to warm up your BYOK, outdoor eating, walking distance to a great shul, close to downtown PS and the Thursday night festival, what's not to love?

You can check the available dates for each house on the calendar via the links below. PM if interested, thanks!

keep in mind perhaps kosher eating travelers come to Palm Springs more than SD in the winter

also not entirely accurate as the restaurant in the LA Jolla JCC has been there for at least 5+ years

We're both guessing, but I'd be surprised if that was true, once catered programs are removed from the equation.
JCC doesn't have the costs and overhead of a typical restaurant, and is very possibly partially funded by community organizations.

Has anyone booked at Palm Springs through Craigslist?

I found a number of listings that are significantly lower than VRBO etc.  I called one that is listed by vacationpalmsprings.com and also on Craigslist.  There are many listings between the two that are duplicates and it seems to me that a lot of the Craigslist ones are scams.  Anyone have experience?  TIA

People post the duplicate listings of legit places on craigslist in order to steal your money. I experienced this first hand in Israel. Run from the CL listings....
