SANTA FE, N.M. - It's summertime and the living is easy.  Every Sunday this summer,  Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino invites guests up to chill at BLU Pool parties by the spacious pool, 12 to 6 p.m., for the 21-plus crowd with music by DJ Che.

"We invite you out for good times, libations, tons of  great food, and DJ Che spinning chill tunes at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino on Sundays throughout the summer," says Gene Stachowski, Executive Director of Marketing. "The Pool Grill and other libation stations will surround our desert oasis. Guests will enjoy splashing around in the water and relaxing in the sun on our luxurious lounge chairs, or can reserve a private cabana, while listening to the best DJ mix. We'll be doing live broadcasts on Blu 102.9 FM from 2 to 4 p.m."

"Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino is living up to their brand as Santa Fe's playground with the launch of BLU Pool," says Scott Hutton, Owner/General Manager of Hutton Broadcasting. "This will be the hottest party of the summer every Sunday with Santa Fe's sleekest radio station, BLU 102.9. as the primary sponsor."

People can tune in to BLU to win tickets to the pool parties. There's nothing like a pool party to celebrate summer. As the weather starts to warm up and happy hour moves outdoors, the idea of a cocktail by the pool with great music becomes more and more appealing. Summer at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino never sounded (and tasted) so good.  The Buffalo Thunder Shuttle runs throughout the day from Santa Fe and can be the designated driver for all Blu Pool party-goers.
