The pool parties may be winding down (even if the heat's not getting the memo), but Mark-Taylor had one bash left to throw. Their community-based pool kickbacks have all had pretty good turnouts, so we thought we'd check up on the last one of the season, at San Marbeya in Tempe.
The Good is, of course, above and the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump. Don't forget to check out all the action on our San Marbeya pool party slideshow.
