Hot Bods, Free Drinks, Etc., Et Al., Ad Nauseum

Hot-body contests and VIP bottle specials might not exactly be a one-of-a-kind occurrence in South Florida, but that doesn’t mean you don’t still want to know where to find them. Malcriado! Mayhem: Spring Break 2011 is the latest incarnation in the prestigious tradition of spring-break debauchery to grace Fort Lauderdale. Located conveniently close the beach and to hot Hooter’s servers next door, Da Big Kahuna is trying to put a new twist on an old standard. In addition to hot bods ($250 cash prize) and bottle service ($100), there will be two live bands — Lavola and Radioboxer — and guest DJ Evil Twin. The cover is $5, and women who are willing to cough up an extra $5 will get open-bar privileges from 11 p.m. to midnight. Drink fast, ladies. Also, males and females who go to Malcriado! Spring Break’s facebook page ( and print the flier will get a free drink. The party officially commences at 11 p.m. and doesn’t stop until 4 a.m. Hot bodies wishing to enter the contest must be registered, much like weapons, by emailing Da Big Kahuna is located on the third floor of Beach Place at 17 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
