Release Pool Party @ Talking Stick Resort

Despite desperate pleas to your higher power of choice, the summertime heat has, indeed, made its inevitable return to the Valley. And now that the blast furnace has been jacked up by Mother Nature, there are two schools of thought on how to deal with the situation: become a virtual hermit and hunker inside your house with the A/C going until mid-October or seek out a stylish swimming hole to dive into. One such place to do so is the pool at the Talking Stick Resort, 9800 East Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale, which once will again host its Release Pool Parties all summer long. Organizers will fly in club DJs from throughout the Southwest to perform guest gigs poolside every weekend through Labor Day while attendees frolic in the water, partake in libations, or chillax in chic cabanas. The series kicks off this weekend with an appearance by Sin City's DJ G-Squared on Saturday, May 4, and a spin session from San Francisco's DJ Chris Harnett on Sunday, May 5. The parties run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Admission is free for ladies, $10 for guys. Call 480-850-4350 for cabana and bottle service or visit
