Arterra's poolside lounge was the setting for the summer all-media party in San Diego, where guests noshed on hummus and apps from Chef Jason Maitland while the DJ kicked down the grooves. Special guest author Troy Johnson was in the house, and five lucky winners went home with a copy of his new memoir, Family Outing: What Happened When I Found Out My Mother Was Gay.
A special thanks to Arterra for the delicious appetizers and fabulous outdoor setting.
