Long gone are the days of skipping school to hang out behind the convenience store, sipping a frozen blue slushie. You're older, more mature now. And with that maturity comes a new way to play hooky - in style.
At Ditch Fridays at The Palms Pool & Bungalows, the truant are not only accepted, they're embraced and encouraged.
Held on Fridays from noon to 7 p.m., those brave enough to play hooky or those lucky enough to have Fridays off, come together for a weekly poolside party where the only thing really needed is a good excuse for the boss come Monday.
Shirking responsibility has never had so many perks before - partygoers can take a dip in three separate pools, take a load off in one of 27 VIP cabanas, or just take in the view of fellow ditchers lounging in the sun.
For those missing the fruity refreshment of a beverage sipped on borrowed time, the Palms Pool and Ditch Fridays offers cocktails like Morty's Bikini Remover (Bacardi Coco, Select Rum, banana liqueur, cranberry and pineapple juice) and raspberry mojitos as a replacement for the over-21 set.
If a long day of doing nothing brings on some hunger pains, grab a burger or sandwich, right there at the pool. The Palms Pool menu boasts fare inspired by the N9NE Steakhouse, including twin tenderloin sandwiches and a Maine lobster club.
With all that temptation, it's no wonder Ditch Fridays manages to lure plenty of people away from the daily grind. And unlike high school, no one will send a note home to your mom.
