The new kid on the pool-party block is Swim Meet, atop the Embassy Row Hilton. The split-level rooftop deck offers great views of D.C., Rock Creek Park and Virginia, a bar, grill and plenty of room to stretch out, which pretty much balances out the small-ish pool. Today's kickoff party, sponsored by local streetwear line Durkl, features DJs Chris Burns and Stranger Than Paradise, free lunch between 1 and 2, and $4 beers. The World Cup will be on a projection screen when you want to take a break from the pool. Admission to the 18-and-over soiree is $10, or free before 2.
