Your ticket includes:
♥ Entry to the event, and the beautiful Skyline pool, with areas to lounge, enjoy music from the DJ, and schmooze.
♥ Access to our private noshes! (Yes, we'll have plenty of delicious food
for you to eat - of both the healthy and not-so-healthy varieties.)
♥ Access to GLOE's own private section of the pool deck, where all the fabulous LGBTQ Jews will be.
♥ Optional advance purchase of discounted drink tickets for beverages at the schmancy pool bar* (Day-of: you can purchase drinks at the bar for the regular, full price.)

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm interested in coming, but worried because I don't know anyone. Can you help?
Yes! Let us know in advance (by Wednesday, August 20) and we'll put you in touch with a friendly GLOE person who is attending.
Or, just come up and introduce yourself to someone with a Glambassador (GLOE Ambassador) badge, and they'll be happy to chat and introduce you to people!
Do I have to swim?
Nope! Those who would like to swim can swim. For those who don't want to swim, there will be plenty of other diversions.
What should I wear?
You are welcome to wear whatever you are comfortable wearing (for swimming or just hanging out), as long as you are wearing something! The atmosphere is casual.
What about the food? Is it kosher?
with all DCJCC events, the food we serve is kosher. The food is milchig/dairy, with vegan and gluten-free options. While we will be at a hotel, GLOE will have paper plates, etc., available for anyone concerned about the dishes.
To attend, do I have to be LGBTQ? Jewish? Religious? Non-religious?
Nope. We welcome everyone (21+) who would like to come to this social event. Many of our LGBT Jewish pool-partiers bring lots of friends, so there are always a great mix of people. If you are friendly and want to connect with others in the community, you are welcome.
Because of the bar, the hotel has designated the pool area ages 21+ during this time.
How do I get there?
The party is in a new metro-accessible spot this year, in DC, at the Capitol Skyline Hotel.
Metro: Navy Yard (Green line)
It is a short walk (4 blocks) from the metro to the hotel.
