Just in case you’re left stranded and still wandering the desert following Coachella next weekend, there could be an oasis waiting for you at Rancho las Palmas, the resort that plays home to chef Sean O’Connell at BluEmber restaurant, which is planning a musically-inspired food event of its own. From 7:30 to 10:00 P.M. on April 28, former Bad Company bassist Paul Cullen is arranging “Unplugged and Uncorked,” a touring event that offers an unlimited selection of wines from his Sonata label at three bars, eats at three separate stations, a chocolate bar, and live acoustic tunes performed by Cullen, to be followed by a post-event jam session with Cullen and local singer/wine blogger Nicky Vallee. Maybe it’s not the second coming of a digitally animated Tupac-alike, but at least you’ll eat well. $60 tickets can be found online. [Paul Cullen]
