DALLAS -- Just as Sunday afternoons in DFW in the fall are centered around the NFL and Cowboys games, summertime Sundays revolve around the pool party scene in Dallas.
This past Sunday we dropped by the Crowne Plaza to check out the 'Electric Summer Pool Party,' the weekly event put on by DJ Willie Trimmer that draws huge bikini-clad crowds to the downtown hotel's ninth-floor swimming pool. This week's star-studded DJ lineup included Jeremy Bearden, Mishal, DJ SC, DJ Titan, D-Train, RedSean, Chamo and Willie Trimmer.
While the party technically ran from 2 p.m. to sunset, the action really got underway shortly after 4 p.m. when this week's host, local celebrity Rachel Starr, arrived on the scene. Where many of the 'Celebrity Hosts' at parties carry the stigma of showing up very late and simply hiding in a roped-off VIP area, Starr mingled with all the party-goers and was very accessible to those looking for pictures throughout the event. The theme of the party was 'Adult Swim' and it basically morphed the pool area into a mini-Vegas or Miami scene that was complete with private VIP cabanas and bottle service with the Dallas skyline as the backdrop.
There was everything one would expect from super hot cocktail waitresses Ashley and Elizabeth in teal bikinis to a body paint artist and lots of dancing to the pulse-pounding music. We also saw several ladies doing their best attempts at cannonballs and a random guy in a Philadelphia Eagles hat attempting to work the scene and get as many pictures as possible with the slew of pretty ladies at the party.
The Electric Summer Pool Party series takes place on most Sundays at the Crowne Plaza in Dallas. For further information including bottle service and cabana inquiries, call 817-874-4260 or visit here.
