The annual Swimming With Sharks summer pool parties atop the Standard Hotel in stunning downtown Los Angeles came to a rip roaring close on Saturday, September 4th. It is now definitely, definitely over. No more DJ battles. No more bikini clad funsters. No more epically corny Jello shots. No more awkward tattoos. No more gentle but firm bouncers. No more absurd games or awesome Incase prizes. No more lazy Saturdays slothing the day away atop the roof of one of LA’s most iconic hotels. Saddest of all, no more waffles in the downstairs diner after a dip in the pool. Sigh.
Why has it taken us so long to post this recap? Man, that is such a good question. Well, as you may recall, FYF Fest and SWSharks #8 happened on the same day about a mile apart from each other. And then there were the FYF Fest after parties to contend with all weekend. Total insanity. And then we jumped on a plane to Portland to help out at MFNW. And then…. Et cetera…. It’s been a busy end of summer.
Thanks again to Mahtab, James and Matt at MFG Productions for making SWSharks possible this summer. We couldn’t have lurked this hard without you. Moreover, thanks to everyone who came to the pool parties. If you’re into heavy bass, spastic splashing, and semi-bad behavior, we hope to see you again next season. Check the photos of the grand finale. Be safe, have fun. We’ll meet you at the escalators in the lobby.
