Whether we look it or not, both the Bitches are Florida girls. We’re creatures of the sun.
In high school, my home came equipped with a pool, dock, boat, and ocean. When I wasn’t in the backyard, I was driving my convertible to the beach—or a beach bar—with my friends, or to the country club for tennis and patio dining.
The transition to Washington was difficult. It’s cold and rainy a lot. You’re pale. You’ve got winter pudge. Sweaters are itchy. (I can go on). It’s misery. Then, all of a sudden summer comes, and, you think, hooray! But, it gets really, really hot—Florida hot—really quickly, and the only sensible place to be is at the pool.
This spring, the Bitches discovered the Penthouse Pool Club and our lives improved dramatically. The Penthouse Pool Club is Miami in D.C. (and the Bitches love Miami). With its beautiful rooftop pool, red-and-white cabanas, healthy delicious food and sangria served to your lounge chair, chill house beats, and impeccable service—it’s like a country club meets a Vegas pool club—otherwise known as a pool club in Mi-am-i, baby.
To celebrate the start of summer, we hosted a rooftop cocktail party with the handsome gentlemen behind Thrillist DC and Bacardi last Wednesday. More than 150 beautiful Bitches and Thrilling dudes showed up to sip Bacardi cocktails, listen to tunes crafted by DJ Neekola, and enjoy a perfect, breezy early summer.
Last weekend we were back at the Penthouse Pool, eating healthy wraps, reading Vogue, and sunning ourselves. We plan to be there all summer, and you can, too. Snag a membership to the Penthouse Pool with no sign-up fee by using the promo code “BITCHES” on the Bitches Who Brunch discount page.
