Those of us not blessed enough to live in a house or an apartment with a pool are always keeping an eye out for potential swimming holes in which to find some respite from the scorching heat. (It's going to be 99 degrees tomorrow, by the way.)
The Lumen has just announced it will open its pool to the sweating masses on Sundays starting June 23rd; eight bucks gets you admission to the pool, plus valet parking (because hello, you're in the Park Cities), all the lemonade you can guzzle, and "passed poolside snacks." There's also a walk-up bar and a limited menu of poolside fare from the hotel's restaurant, The Front Room — think burgers and fish tacos.
Sounds like a viable alternative if you're tired of fighting the hipsters for a lounge chair at the ever-popular Fraternal Order of the Eagles pool.
