Created in 1991, The Dinah’s popularity skyrocketed when it was featured on Showtime’s The L Word in 2004.

The girls road tripped from LA to Palm Springs in one of the most eventful episodes of season one, Looking Back. Members of the cast have also blessed the crowd attending the event over the following years.

Earlier this year Showtime has announced The L Word is coming back for a revival, so better keep your eyes open for some celebrities sight-seeing.
