resort pool parties

Water parks are fun — if you’re 11 years old. For a grown-up way to cool down, Talking Stick Resort is bringing back its “RELEASE” pool parties for guests ages 21 and older.

You don’t have to rent a room at the resort to attend the events, which feature music cranked out by top deejays from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. There’s also a pool bar with drink specials, and the resort will host promotional giveaways.

For those looking for a luxury experience, 18 private, shaded cabanas line the pool and can be rented for the occasion. Outfitted with chaise lounges and ceiling fans, the cabanas also come with a personal attendant and optional bottle service.

RELEASE parties are scheduled 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through May 19. Music goes from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free most weekends, but men will be charged $10 on holiday weekends.

Talking Stick Resort is located at 9800 E. Indian Bend Rd. in Scottsdale. For information, call (480) 850-4350 or visit
