Shed a salty tear for the last weekend at The Jones pool

Are your eyes red from the chlorine, or have you been crying?

This weekend will be the last for many area swimming pools, including The Jones, the rooftop oasis above Cosentino's grocery store at 13th and Main. It's been our everything: our escapist, beach-blanket fantasy; our bad tattoo gallery; our greasy taste of the Jersey Shore; our booze-fueled, skin cancer enabler.

You know what makes saying goodbye easier? Free shit!

On Saturday, the first 250 people to take that elevator ride to paradise will get free t-shirts, according to Brian Collins, managing partner of The Jones and Mosaic Lounge. Saturday night marks the pool/bar's second-ever Three-For-All Power Hour, with $3 cocktails and beers from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (Isn't that two hours? Never mind. Math is hard.)

Collins and the Mosaic staff will be back at the pool on Sunday to mourn celebrate the end of summer, and the first 250 people to arrive will get a free 2011 season pass to The Jones. They're offering free food from the grill and $4 mojitos, frozen cocktails and Boulevard Wheat bottles (which actually come poured in cups, because glass + pool deck = sadness and blood).

But to really get your fill, you'll have to show up to The Jones on Monday, when doors open at noon, and close again that evening, forevermore.

Until next summer.
