Memorial Day Weekend at Ace Hotel
By Andy Cheng
Posted May 22, 2012 in
From its conception till today, Memorial Day has slowly transformed from a solemn, respected commemoration of our country’s fallen soldiers to a celebratory excuse for beer pong parties and new car deals—the zombie apocalypse is just waiting to happen, people! But if you can’t beat them, party with them. This Memorial Day Weekend, Ace Hotel & Swim Club will be hosting its annual concert party featuring a handful of local DJs and artists over five days. The concert series will have a number of artists and events such as ¡Reunión! with DJ Day to start off the weekend, JP Houston, Reggae Sol by the pool, DJ Odysey, R-Rated Bingo, Trivia Show and much more. The party begins on Thursday, but really starts kicking in come Saturday with events scattered throughout the day and time between concerts to relax by the pool or in a hot sauna. Events are free to people staying at the hotel and spa/swim club members. Party the night away, because our predecessors fought in wars so we’re able to!
Ace Hotel & Swim Club, 701 E. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, (760) 325-9900; www.acehotel.com. Thurs-Mon, May 24-28. Times vary. Event is free with hotel passes. 21+.
