The Hard French party at El Rio is an ardently and successfully all-gender, all-sexuality crowd, so if you're feeling out of place, maybe you're wearing the wrong shoes? The theme this time around, a take-off on the Gidget-slasher-surf genre film, invited attendees to don bikinis, colored balls, and badminton rackets, and work it out on the backyard patio. DJs Brown Amy and Carnita plus special guest Dick Vivian (of Rooky Ricardo's Records) brought the soul. Guests brought the hairdos. - Emily Savage
