Contestants and the crowd alike were in for a hot time at Mr. Rick's fourth Annual Bikini Contest. Packed to the overflow with energy, cocktails, a thumping beat, and -- of course -- heel and string-clad contestants, the show made for a lively afternoon. The crowd spilled continually out into the palm-tree-lined patio for a breath of the ocean breeze and gathered to relax in the summery shade of the fronds.
Grand prize winner Monica Racz, flirting a pink and black lace concoction, received a giant $1,000 check amidst enthusiastic cheers. The show ended in a flourish of cocktails and flashing photos before trickling out to a cooling afternoon by the sea.
