Okayplayer and Okayafrica present: The OKAYSUMMER Pop-Up Party!

+ A late-summer chance to get your DRINK + DANCE + SWIM on +

Set at the brand-new, tropical-infused, paradise-like, art oasis – an ode to the Boca Raton resorts of the 1940's - come swag out with us at The Palms this Saturday for a day and night of DJs, performances, swimming, theatrics, acts of fire, coconut cocktails, and lobster rolls.
