Celebrate Summer:

unwind as the week winds down.

WHO: Rochester A List to host a Pool Party along with Flower City Fashionista

WHAT:  Swank, Swag, Shopping, Sport, Summer, + Service. 

WHERE: Rooftop of the Radisson Riverside Hotel on East Main Street in the heart of downtown Rochester

WHEN: Thursday, August 21. 5-9PM.

WHY: To party on a rooftop with a sick view of downtown. What else do you need? … Okay, how about:

  • Networking
  • Mingling
  • Relaxing (I mean like spa services)
  • Shopping (we’re talking #shoplocal extreme)
  • Chilling (lawn games, no big)
  • Eating, Drinking, Cigar-rolling
  • People Watching (we’re downtown … and there will be models)

Music, Mingling and Mixed Drinks on the Radisson Riverside Hotel’s Rooftop Pool Deck

Let’s start with some FAQs. You throw after-work pool-party into the mix, and suddenly all of our adult-isms completely take over. As. If.

FAQs.

1. How should I dress? You’re probably coming from work.

Ladies: 3 Letters – LBD. Or another-color equivalent. The idea is a sleek dress or skirt + blouse you feel comfortable enough in all day that easily transitions to night. What helps with this transition?

  • Rocking heels.
  • Great bag.
  • Poppin’ lip.
  • Blazer or wrap to keep it cool + cozy.

Men: Sleek slack, tie-less button-down. Or, bust-out that white T you wear beneath the button-down. Cannot go wrong.

2. But it’s a pool party! What now?

Listen. I’m brining my bathing suit. If there’s a pool, and it’s still hot like the projected 81° daytime temp indicates, and there’s a pool on top of a roof with a downtown view. … You can’t ignore a good pool. It doesn’t mean you have to get in. It doesn’t even mean you try and combine beachwear with after-work evening attire–this isn’t Miami + congrats to the person who does pull this off–but it does mean you are prepared.

TIP: Looking for a demure vintage 1-piece?? I highly recommend Shop Peppermint, which is where I bought mine. (Sorry men, none for you. … .)

3. What should I expect?

Soiree. Shindig. Carnival. Backyard BBQ. I am not the organizers of the event, but this is my take. This is a cocktail party that also has a beer-toss Dress for Success fundraiser. (Let that juxtaposition settle-in.) This is an after-work get-together filled with cigar-rolling + loads of premier #shoplocal shopping. True there are no rides nor corn dogs involved, but there are lawn games. And food, and vodka, and spa services, and–oh yes–a DJ.
