While Mexico honors its military on this day, it is largely celebrated as a regional event in Puebla with their signature dish…mole poblano.  In the U.S., people party from coast to coast honoring Mexican food and culture. Think fresh margaritas, fajitas, and yummy guacamole. “According to the US Department of Agriculture, Americans eat over 80 million pounds of avocados on Cinco de Mayo alone!”  For more fun Cinco de Maya facts, please visit: https://www.parents.com/fun/parties/special-occasions/fun-facts-about-cinco-de-mayo/

Restaurants with Misters. Si Bon! So Good!!

Restaurants with misters are not a new concept for businesses in the Coachella Valley. Yet, they can make a big difference in getting folks in the door…and keeping them in their seats. The desert is bursting with culinary treasures. In fact, you can literally taste your way across the Coachella Valley. But businesses without misters can suffer in warmer weather, especially during those scorching summer months.

That’s because robust restaurant misters can signal:

  1. The establishment is open by providing a highly visible cue.
  2. Al fresco dining is an option.
  3. The restaurant utilizes all its seating to move guests in and out – an important feature for popular restaurants with usually long wait times.
  4. The restaurant is willing to invest in the details that keep guests comfortable.
  5. A restaurant takes pride in all levels of its operations, indicating: “It’s cool to be cool.” And that’s good.

Si Bon Misters Are So Good
Si Bon is in Rancho Mirage. Even on the hottest days, Si Bon’s invites patrons into its busy eatery to enjoy the best Belgian-French inspired fine food and beverages in the most comfortable setting. At once modern and traditionally romantic, Si Bon is an intimate and unpretentious venue bursting with unique dishes, wine selections, and a relaxed ambiance that encourages visitors to stay, chat, and savor the café culture experience.

misters at si bonFrom the parking lot, visitors can see its misters cooling the air from between large shade sails that flank the café’s magical outdoor patio. Koolfog designed the misters for Si Bon to optimize the areas that could benefit from high-rise evaporative cooling wrapped around the outside ceiling rims. The awning misters that float a cool breeze over the sunnier part of the patio (and face towards a busy traffic street) provide a “can’t miss” visual impact while creating a cool space to chill. Classic French styled chairs, colorful art, natural material accents, big shade awnings, and a cool space for lingering over conversation and a café au lait represent quintessential French design detail. 

Voila!! The Food Is Good Too!!
From crepes to homemade waffles and desserts, Si Bon serves up mouthwatering, delicate, and delicious dishes. It also offers scrumptious craft cocktails, Happy Hour sips, breath-taking Brunch menus, and special cooking demonstrations. In addition to off-site catering, Si Bon’s talented Chef Philippe Caupain hosts amazing cooking demonstrations where dinner with wine is served following an immersive presentation.

Koolfog Donates Misting System to Planned Community Garden

Koolfog recently donated a high-pressure misting system pump intended for a planned community garden in the East Coachella Valley. The plan is to create raised beds for seedlings and plants with a misting system to help keep “crops and gardeners” cool in extreme desert temps. This intended community garden will promote a healthy lifestyle by encouraging outdoor physical activity while educating those with access to the garden about the benefits of harvesting fresh produce.

The Rise of Community Gardens in California
Community gardens have become quite popular in California. California, known for its diverse climate and agricultural heritage, fosters a strong interest in gardening and sustainability initiatives. Community gardens offer numerous benefits to residents, including:

  • Reducing Food Insecurity: Community gardens provide fresh, locally grown produce, which can help address food insecurity in low-income neighborhoods. By growing their own food, community members have better access to nutritious fruits and vegetables.
  • Educational Opportunities: Community gardens offer educational programs on gardening techniques, nutrition, and environmental sustainability. They can also provide an opportunity to connect people to food systems by teaching them how food grows.
  • Environmental Benefits: Community gardens contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing food miles (the distance food travels from farm to plate), minimizing the need for chemical inputs, promoting biodiversity, and mitigating urban heat island effects.
  • Economic Opportunities: Community gardens can provide economic benefits by reducing household grocery expenses through access to free or low-cost produce. Additionally, surplus produce can be sold at local markets or used in community fundraising efforts.
  • Improved Mental Health: Gardening has been shown to have therapeutic benefits, such as reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.


Why A High-Pressure Misting System Pump Will Be an Asset to A Community Garden
A high-pressure misting system pump can be an asset to a community garden by enhancing existing watering methods, helping to regulate temperature, and provide a comfortable environment for people to gather. Proper hydration is crucial for plant health and growth and high-pressure misting systems atomize water into tiny droplets, which are easily absorbed by plants. This can lead to more efficient water usage compared to traditional watering methods.  In hot climates, a misting system can help regulate temperatures within the garden by lowering ambient temperatures through evaporative cooling. This can create a more comfortable environment for both plants and gardeners to create a social gathering point that fosters a sense of pride and cooperation.


 Supporting the Development of Community Gardens
Community gardens continue to be popular and are often supported by both local governments and grassroots organizations across the state. As the establishment of community gardens contributes to the creation of healthier, more sustainable, and resilient communities, Koolfog is pleased to support the gardens with robust high-pressure misting pumps and evaporative cooling technology that will enhance the environment in the East Coachella Valley and beyond.


The Best Outdoor Misting System Adds Depth to Palm Springs Building Make-Over

The Flannery Exchange is a multi-use space located in the heart of Palm Springs Uptown Design District. It is a hub hosting a bevy of modern workspace, retail, and dining options, and it’s become a trendy gathering place for locals and visitors alike. It’s what we like to call a “true bubble” where depending upon your need, everything is available within reach. Want to grab a spot to catch up on email correspondence? Want to grab a quick bite, take in an art gallery or purchase a souvenir on premise? Planning a fun event and need a cool space? Every detail has been selected to appeal to distinctive tastes including the installation of the best outdoor misting system around.

What’s Old Is New
The Flannery Exchange has become a focal point and destination in Palm Springs’s Uptown Design District. This area is known for its amazing style, vintage buildings, retro-inspired boutiques, and consignment hot spots. Taking a cue from this hip environment, visionary Michael Flannery has found success in his work, play, shop, and dine concept designed to cater to “digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and ‘bleisure” travelers that crave an inspired workspace”. After transforming a run-down 1981 Bank of America Building (which doesn’t seem to have a very jazzy vibe), The Flannery Exchange is an up-cycled hub with definite flare.

Using Innovative Tech and Clever Design to Reimagine A Retired Property
This bright, 20,000 square foot “plaza”, offers short and long-term leases for office space, conference rooms, event hosting, retail space and more. Simple and clean lines define the furnishings that dot both the indoor and outdoor environment creating a quintessential Palm Springs feel. Modern and lux materials and décor are showcased with great lighting while providing multiple dynamic settings to get things done. Ease of use, support, and tech access to fast internet naturally blends with a desert lifestyle that appreciates amazing mountain views and fresh air. The models structure, housing amenities under one roof, is a brilliant way to capture the interest of not only a traveling or local business community but an inspired network of like-minded creatives.

Finding The Best Outdoor Misting System on A Rooftop Haven
One of the greatest spots to hang out, meet up, or set up a lap-top and chill is the Flannery Exchange Rooftop. The outdoor deck and patio space has ample room to spread out, take in the views, breathe in the fresh air, and take advantage of the warmth of the desert’s unlimited sunshine. Planned leisure activities, nighttime social events, and even a yoga class practicing on the deck are some of the goings-on that are accommodated. One of the features that makes this space cool and comfortable when hot temps rise is the installation of the best outdoor misting system designed, manufactured, and installed by none other than local Coachella Valley favorite Koolfog, Inc. Koolfog’s reputation for creating custom, cost-effective misting solutions is an easy choice as their team is also very skilled in meeting the challenges in seamlessly developing outdoor spaces. Reinventing and repurposing a vintage structure is a very complex endeavor and requires attention to deal. It makes sense that the best outdoor misting system was chosen to provide the cooling aspects of the Flannery Exchange.

A Cool Design With Even Cooler Misters
The grounds are simply gorgeous and a reason unto itself so take a ride out to the “Ranch”.  Meticulously groomed for enjoyment, the landscape is dotted with lovely sculptures, “décor props” such as wagon wheels, and meandering paths that lead to pools, lush gardens and waterfalls. There is a large grassy lawn area that is often filled with special event tables (weddings, fashion shows, and more have been taken upon the lawn). There is also a large outdoor patio bar surrounded by misters making it the perfect spot to take in desert views. The misters are carefully crafted to cool outdoor diners and guests by using evaporative cooling technology. Strategically placed mist nozzles cool the ambient air while creating a misty, moody, atmosphere.

Misters Make Summer Ball A Blast

Catching a summer baseball game just got a bit cooler, literally, in Palm Springs. The desert summer temperatures are scorching and create many challenges in organizing healthy outdoor activities. But management at Palm Springs POWER Baseball has hit a home run in its investment in misters to ensure that America’s favorite sports past-time can “play ball”!

A cool feature at the stadium?  Some areas of the stands have misters. Of course, misters are common at Palm Springs establishments due to summertime temperatures well into the triple digits, but, still, I think it’s really cool that misters were incorporated into the stadium. What a blast!”  – Yelp Review

Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Palm Springs POWER Baseball facility is a state-of-the-art sports complex located in Palm Springs, California.

baseball stadium misters

Misters Make All The Difference
“Bring on the heat” takes on new meaning for those faced with playing in 100-degree-plus weather and the thought of sitting through nine “red-hot” innings can be a tough sell. Placing misters throughout the property has allowed for a truly cool baseball experience as well as a “sweet spot” for hosting various tournaments and events. The misters can be a lifesaver as they can drop the ambient surrounding air temp, sometimes 10, 20 degrees. On any given game day, visitors may see company team building events or groups socializing under the misters with a POWER BBQ. What baseball game would be complete without hot dogs, peanuts and “Cool-Up” ice cream! The POWER concession stand serves all of your ballpark favorites and many more! Hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn, Cracker Jacks, sunflower seeds, peanuts, chips, candy, ice cream, soda, Gatorade, water, and beer, as well as made-to-order salads.

Each July 4th the Palm Springs POWER and the City of Palm Springs launch a special celebration for residents and visitors to the Coachella Valley. The home game places the Power players to compete mid-league and after the game, there is a spectacular firework extravaganza to light up the night!

Stadium in the misty moonlight. SO fun! Great event while visiting the desert. The misters above the seats were perfect.”- YELP Review

Definitely put this “Little/Big League” experience on your list of “fun in the sun” happenings to share with family and friends. And enjoy the Koolfog misters!

Whether tailgating or in the clubhouse, spectators can enjoy a weekend polo match and join the party on the field for the traditional Champagne Divot Stomp.  No matter the event, you will find equestrian aficionados, locals, and visitors hanging out under the misters at the Tack Room Tavern.

The patio overlooks the Empire Polo Field, providing a stunning backdrop of lush greenery and majestic mountains.

The misters on the Tack Room Tavern patio provide several benefits as they help to cool down the outdoor space during hot days. This is especially important in a desert climate like Indio, where temperatures can soar to uncomfortable levels.

The Empire Polo Field can get dusty, especially during events and festivals, and the misters help to settle the dust particles and keep them from being kicked up into the air. This ensures a more pleasant and enjoyable experience for patrons sitting on the patio. In addition, the misters create a refreshing and pleasant ambiance on the patio. The fine mist creates a misty atmosphere that adds a touch of tranquility and relaxation to the outdoor space.


Misters contribute to a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for patrons at the Tack Room Tavern and enhance the destination as a must-visit venue for anyone looking for great food, drinks and a memorable experience.


It Can’t Just be the Outdoor Misters that Makes Sandwich Shop A #1 Hot Spot

The Sandwich Shop in downtown Palm Springs has lines out the door and a buzzing patio with outdoor misters to cool hungry guests. It’s a quaint spot with colorful “mix-matched summer” seating, set around soft foliage and fountains. Guests can see into the kitchen to view orders while in line, and it’s fun to watch the different sandwiches being crafted. The Sandwich Shop states that their “all-specialty” sandwiches are always fresh, and they make their bread on-site. You can order off the menu with aptly Palm Springs-centric Sammy names, build your own, or ask for your order to be made into a sans-bread salad. “Whatnots” include chips, cookies, blondies, brownies, cake, and bread pudding. They cater and offer kid-proof selections such as PB&J, Grilled Cheese, and the Munk: a choice of Sourdough, Whole Wheat, Multi-Grain, Jewish rye, or Marble Rye topped with Nutella, Bananas, & Peanut Butter.  Ok, so cute names, something delicious for the entire family, and yummy food. But the outdoor misters complete the experience!

What’s Their Secret To Earning The Top Spot On Not One, But Two Review Sites?
Both Trip Advisor and Yelp rate the Sandwich Shop as their #1 best deli sandwich spot in the greater Palm Springs area.  A foodie destination, the Coachella Valley has a ton of different restaurants, café, bistros, and grab-n-go venues to satiate an appetite for almost any craving. But if you peruse the reviews for the Sandwich Shop, they read like a gourmet critique from the finest culinary trade magazines: 

  • “Perfect proportions.
  • “Craveable composition.”
  • “Balanced flavors”
  • “Abundant in meat and fillings and the bread is a must order.”
  • “Overall:
    Probably one of the best — if not, the best — sandwiches I’ve ever had. Their crackly bread is a must-get, it gives you the satisfying crunch you want without tearing up the roof of your mouth. The aesthetic of the crackly bread is also just so fitting, it literally looks like the desert ground (so fitting considering where this place is located). The construction of the sandwich itself holds and doesn’t spill out after the first bite. The turkey defies the laws of gastronomy and is somehow not dry. The service and people working there are pleasant to be around. Anyone visiting the area must go here, it’s a non-negotiable.”

Can the Outdoor Misters add to the experience?
It can be argued that meeting more than one sensory requirement can improve an experience.  So if you are hot and sweaty waiting for your food or miserably uncomfortable eating your food in hot weather, it might not taste as good. The Sandwich Shop mitigated this problem by outfitting their casual patio with outdoor misters. The outdoor misters dot their shade structure making for a welcome place to relax, sit, savor, and enjoy, each and every, bite at an unhurried pace. Outdoor misters, also, offer a visually pleasing cool mist that can draws attention to a busy patio.  The site of happy, smiling, crowds is a great indicator of a thriving place put on your “must-try” list. The Sandwich Shop crew also goes the extra mile to ensure customers feel cared for.  They have incredible customer service that is friendly and helpful.

Could It Be Their Sauces?
Bomb Sauce
Buttermilk Dressing, Jalapenos, and Franks Red Hot Sauce
(should this be bottled in a jar to take home?)

Secret Sauce
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic & Herbs

outdoor misters on patio palm springs

May be the secret to the Sandwich Shop’s success is their great service. Maybe it’s the sauces or fresh ingredients. Maybe it’s the daily baked bread. Maybe it’s the outdoor misters. Whatever their secret, they have created magic having earned their reputation as #1.  As one reviewer states, “The Sandwich Spot is everything a damn good sandwich should be.”
