Five Must-See Metro Phoenix Pool Parties in May

Page 3 of 5

I ❤ Pool Parties at El Santo The Facebook page for this monthly event at El Santo unabashedly claims that it's a "bikinis wearing, beach balls tossing, cocktails drinking, photo booth picture taking, piñata busting, pool splashing, DJ beat pounding disaster (in a good way) pool party!" While we've never much "disaster" taking place in its swank swimming hole, save a few mistimed cannonballs or a couple iPhones phones getting accidentally dunked, the description pretty much sums up an average summertime afternoon spent at the North Scottsdale joint.

Witness it for yourself during the latest I ❤ Pool Parties, on Sunday, May 12. The particular DJs bashing beats include locals Trilltone, Nameless, Switchem, and Will Power dropping hot spins from noon "until sundown and beyond." Admission is free.
