Today I'm off to a pool party sponsored by BearsLA. Although I know of the group and its monthly events at the nearest bar, this will be my first pool party. I was invited to go by a friend and subsequently discovered that I will know a small number of others there too. Our weather has been in the high 80's and low 90's (triple digits in some parts of the LA basin) and the humidity has been high, making it feel hotter than it is. So a pool party is the perfect way to "cool off." And hopefully to meet new men.
