We're talking an estimated 2,000 girls in bikinis, surfer shorts, thongs, sarongs -- one girl strutted in boy briefs and little electrical tape xs over her nipples, a few others didn't bother with tape.
This is always the hottest event of Aqua Girl weekend, and this year didn't disappoint. We're talking eye candy everywhere. Chains of girls grinding to hot beats, a pool brimming over with bodies and beach balls and floaty things, rows of girls sunning under palm trees.
In its seventh year, Aqua Girl lured about 4,000 women this weekend, from all over the U.S. (and even Latin America and Europe). Unlike other girl circuit parties, this one is a nonprofit, raising money for the Aqua Foundation for Women, which gives out grants and scholarships to students and organizations in South Florida's women's community.
And according to someone staffing the Curve magazine table at the pool party -- Aqua Girl parties are "a lot classier'' than the Palm Springs parties. So there.
Somehow, after all that steamy pool action, all that drinking (and all that whatever else) the Aqua Girls managed to put themselves together and head out for a long night of more partying.
There was pretty much a full house at Lincoln Road's Colony Theater for a comedy show featuring headliner Rene Hicks. (Props to local funny girl Karen Brown for her excellent little film). And an even fuller house later at Karu & Y's Tottem Gardens, where the girls resumed their bumping and grinding.
A curious side note: We got to chatting with Aqua Girl founder Alison Burgos at the comedy show (Alison, where DO you get all those hotties?) and she confirmed what we had sort of figured out from some random poolside interviewing.
A good number of strippers and exotic dancers come from all over to party at Aqua Girl. It's a well-known fact (at least the lesbian community knows) that a lot of the women who strip and dance for men are actually lesbians (sorry to ruin your fantasies, boys). And it seems a bunch of them take time off from their j.o.b.s to attend Aqua Girl weekend.
Alison says several are local. She knows them from a recurring party for lesbians she has promoted over the years at usually-straight strip joints.
"What's funny is that we've always had a hard time getting some of the strippers to dance for the girls, because their girlfriends get jealous and don't let them do it,'' Burgos says.
OK, so wait -- there are three more parties today? Hope all you girls are hydrating and taking your vitamins.
