Memorial Day is one of my favorite holiday weekends. Maybe it’s because I’m so patriotic—I do vote and I love a man in uniform. Or, it could just be that I love barbeque—which you already know, and lounging around the pool….whatever it is, I love it.

So besides hanging out on an inflatable raft eating burgers and potato salad all weekend, I plan to spend a little time tonight at one of my favorite supper clubs, Bagatelle inside the Tropicana. I’ve written about it before, but now that it’s pool season, the doors from the dance floor are open so let the splashing begin.

One of my favorite DJ’s at the station, DJ THUMP will be spinning there tonight for Power 88’s first official appearance at Bagatelle. We are hosting a special Memorial weekend party with 2-1 drink specials <—you know that part was my idea.

The pool area is beautiful and there’s an outdoor dining area with a full menu. Everything I’ve tried has been fantastic. The Shrimp quesadillas are served with this lovely green sauce for dipping that is just yummy. The calamari is golden and crispy, and includes both the rings and tentacles, which I love. I hate when you only get the rings…

Doors open at 9pm. Locals are free before Midnight.

Hope to see all of you there!

Cheers to America!
