Agua Caliente’s Bikini Madness

Agua Caliente Casino * Resort * Spa has put out the word: “Calling All Bikini Babes—and those who love them!”  Yes, it’s time again for the Rancho Mirage resort at the corner of Bob Hope Drive and Ramon Road to celebrate the summer heat with its weekly Friday Caliente Pool Parties.

From July 6th on through the summer, nightlife-lovers can join the party for a $10 cover fee, starting at 8:00 p.m and ending around 1:00 a.m.  I’ve had a blast there in the past, where revelers of all ages, sizes, shapes, and orientations mingle poolside AND in the water, with hot DJ mixes, Poolside Blackjack, Beer Pong, and a fun mix of cocktails made especially for the party with 42 Below Vodka and Bacardi Rum.  Yum yum.

This year’s event brings a fun twist to the “bikini babe” mentality of the Friday night parties with a Poolside Bikini Contest.  Women (over 21) from far and near are encouraged to strut their stuff in front of the judges in order to vie for a grand prize of $2500, plus a professional photo shoot that will make the winner the face of the 2013 Caliente Pool Party!  As we ramp up toward the Caliente Pool Party Bikini Bash Finals, three weekly winners will each take home $100 cash, plus receive complimentary admission to the pool parties for the rest of the summer.  In addition, they’ll be given a free hotel room for the night of said final showdown, which takes place August 31th.

All summer long I have tons of friends visiting our little slice of heaven here in the Palm Springs Valley, so I’m sure to be there on Fridays, hanging at the pool, sipping a cocktail, and dancing my feet off.  I hope my trunks stay on!  See you there…
