Dexter at The Tropicana Bar

A nice party for a serial killer

The summertime tradition of drinks around the pool is alive and well. The cast of Showtime’s serial-killer-with-a-heart soap Dexter popped by The Roosevelt Hotel’s Tropicana Bar to drain a glass in honor of the series' season six Blu-ray and DVD launch. Dex’s dad (James Remar) made an appearance as did True Blood’s Mariana Klaveno and some reality TV folk like Nick Simmons (Gene Simmons: Family Jewels) and Taylor Armstrong (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) among others. I’ve watched the show from the beginning. Colin Hanks was not my favorite bad guy, but there was definitely an interesting twist at the end which left ya hanging. Here's hoping there’s a good villain in Season Seven. Or maybe I am just bitter because I accidentally showed up at this function two weeks ago on the wrong date. The kids swimming in the pool tipped me off that it wasn't a party for a fun serial killer. The show starts up again on Showtime on Sunday, September 30.
