On Sunday, June 23 the fabulous Hotel Lumen opened its Courtyard Pool to the public for family fun this summer. This looked like the perfect venue for the Ask Miss A Dallas Team to launch its monthly Live Tweet Event. Ask Miss A editor Dena Miller and author Kristi Anderson were eager to personally check this one out. The social media interactive event had Miss A author Leslie Chatman retweeting and Miss A followers commenting on the many photos tweeted that showed the great time being had by all.
The alluring oasis features complimentary poolside chaise lounges and cozy cabanas, available on a first-come, first-served basis that filled up quickly. Early arrivals were mostly young families with small children that enjoyed the pool toys the hotel provided. As the hottest time of day approached about 3 p.m., children began leaving, replaced by groups of girlfriends that found the pool setting to be the perfect place to hang out on a hot Texas Sunday afternoon.
Passed complimentary poolside snacks included frozen lemon-basil pops that were delightfully refreshing, a decadent mini shrimp roll, water and lemonade. If that wasn’t enough, a walk-up cash bar and cocktail service kept thirsts quenched and a special al la carte poolside menu from The Front Room: A Park Cities Diner was offered. Servers were very attentive and friendly.
When asked if they were happy with the turn out, management said, “Yes, and we expect next week to be even busier ,” while promising to “take care” of the Miss A Team should they come again. Based on the tweets received, Lumen may want to squeeze in a few more loungers. This monthly event continues Sundays all summer long and looks to be a hot spot in the heart of the Park Cities. While the childless are welcome and fit right in, Sundays are geared toward families with children. However, there is talk of adding a Wednesday evening pool party for “adults only” to accommodate those singles hoping to meet others or couples wanting to enjoy a pool sans children.
