Joining Hearts toasts upcoming pool party with margaritas

Add this share
The skies opened up on Saturday over the planned margarita bust at X Midtown with the Joining Hearts crew. The bottomless icy green stuff flowed more indoors than outside, but the event would not be dampened.

As Joining Hearts hurtles quickly to its giant summer pool party set for July 18 – yep, it’s so on again this year – these pre-parties celebrate the summer of pandemic recovery. The margarita bust was aptly themed “Together ATLast.”

Organizers also tempted potential hosts, volunteers and patrons during the event. For more on those opportunities and the last remaining tickets to the main event, visit Joining Hearts online.
