Release Pool Parties at Talking Stick The larger of this North Scottsdale resort's two swimming spots was a popular destination last summer, and not just because the water was cold and the staff is friendly. A big factor to draw people in for a dip was Talking Stick's "Release" events, which run every weekend through September, and offer out-of-town guest DJs spinning up Top 40 and dance hits all afternoon while drink specials can be had at the bar and attendees score promo giveaways.
This year's series debuts this weekend when Las Vegas selector G-Squared visits on Saturday, May 4, and the Bay Area's DJ Chris Harnett stops by on Sunday, May 5. The parties run 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free for ladies, $10 for dudes.
