Winter in August at Azure is mostly wishful thinking

Ice ice baby: Bridget Marquardt with the Moet girls

You can’t fight mother nature. That was the take-home lesson of Azure’s August 28 Snow Day party with Bridget Marquardt. As delightfully irreverent as a summer snow day sounds, in Las Vegas in August it’s awfully hard to deliver. So instead of chills, we got a perfect summer day with low humidity, plenty of sun, a strong breeze—and not a chance of snow flurries. The promised snow machine slated to give partygoers a taste of winter was a no-show thanks to strong winds, and a snowman-shaped ice sculpture melted into a skinny ice stud in the summer heat.

But the lack of winter-themed attractions didn’t stop anyone from having a good time. Bridget arrived to cheers in a sparkling bikini of her own design and took a dip in the pool as staffers showered her and the rest of the crowd in champagne. And the warm day couldn’t take the chill out of the bar’s made-to-order alcoholic snow cones, which came with whatever blend of booze and mixers revelers desired. (Bartender’s recommendation: Ciroc Coconut and pineapple.) Even without a snow day on the schedule, these icy treats were so fun to eat, I’d order them all summer long.
