Your skin is tanning, your clothes are getting stickier, and that layer of sweat along your forehead is seemingly impossible to get rid of. That can only mean one thing: summer is approaching. But rather than complaining in your pricey apartment about your air conditioning bills, get outside. Better yet, head to a poppin’ pool party in your area. You know there’s bound to be one around the corner—especially if you live in NYC, L.A., or Vegas. Enjoy the sun (because come winter, you’ll be crying), enjoy some good music, good people, and great cocktails, and basically just enjoy life. Here’s the only pool party guide you need this summer to get you started. These parties are so lit that you better bring some floatation devices, just in case.
