Things to do

Kids from Orange County, Riverside, San Bernadino and beyond flock to this raging pool party of 1,500 to test their fate with blackjack, beer pong, the midnight cannonball and a bikini contest while resident DJ Aaron C plays pop and hip-hop-based dance tracks from his booth bathed in colorful club lights. But before you write off this Casino scene as a Jersey Shore-type meat market, know this: One of the winners in last year’s bikini contest took a prize by working the stage in board shorts and a tank top. In other words, at this party, (which is in its fourth consecutive year) it’s more about having fun and how you shake it, and less about leading with a hot bod. (Which isn’t to say that some partygoers dress down to nearly nothing—last year, a memorable group of guys were spotted donning tuxedo speedos.) An onsite photo booth documents the debauchery with insta-updates on Facebook.
