If you happen to be a fan of stylish swimming pool parties, the Memorial Day weekend certainly had a few to offer, especially up in Scottsdale.

Splash bashes at Maya Day and Nightclub, the W Hotel, and Talking Stick Resort over the three-day holiday were swamped with plenty of young and beautiful types that were eager to partake in all the hot beats, chilled drinks, and animated social scene both in and out of the pool.

And there was also much in the way of people-watching going on as well for members of either sex thanks to all the swimsuit-wearing eye-candy about. We hit up several of the affairs and snapped plenty of pictures of Memorial Day weekend revelers, including those making up this visual study of sorts of the beautiful, the beautifully strange, or just folks who were fascinating to watch.

This is wrong and disgusting. You should be ashamed. Memorial Day is no longer a holiday for those who served this country and lost their lives. It has become a sexual drinking holiday. WTF is wrong with you people!!!!!! I am unsubscribing from this horrible magazine now. You should have been interviewing military, visiting graves talking to families who lost someone. Instead you name the 50 top coolest people at a freaking hotel pool party??? I am so disappointed in all of you. You make me sick.


This is just ridiculous! Memorial Day is now another commercialized holiday. It's about looking hot and pool parties. This is sad and disgusting America. This holiday is to remember those that lost their lives trying to protect us and our homes. You should be out visiting veterans and thanking them! You should be visiting them in their home and talk to them, play cards, do some chores! Repay the act of honor! I WTF is wrong with you people! No wonder we are the most hated country and people want to bomb us. No one has respect anymore for this great nation and those who lost their lives in any war we have ever been in. The ones who come home and take their lives because of the things they saw! This is not about BBQ, music, drinking, bikini's, beaches, pool, parties. You should be celebrating these lives that were lost. You should all be completely ashamed of yourselves. My brother is military and I thank god for everyday that he still walks the earth. You people should be doing the same.

I'm now mad that I took 3 minutes to look at these sad assholes who are "coolest". I can't get that time back. I loathe Scottsdale!

I suppose if your main goal in life is "to look sexually attractive in public places", it was a win. SMH. The "coolest people" were the ones doing community service, or spending time with their families, in memory of those who served. Ah, Scottsdale! Land of the vapid!
