Tia Jackson at the 2011 Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant

We obviously enjoyed covering the 15th Annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant earlier this year, we also had poolside access at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach where we met and photographed some of the contestants in their bikinis.

Above we have a slideshow of the amazing Tia Jackson sporting a yellow bikini and showing off her incredible figure. Tia obviously keeps in great shape – check out those abs! Tia also flashed her pretty smile as Paul Miller got some great shots.

We’ll be posting more poolside photos of Hooters contestants so check back soon.

Lindsey Way – winner of the 2011 Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant

We covered the 15th Annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant earlier this year, we were lucky to have access to some of the contestants for some poolside bikini photos on a scorching hot day in the South Florida sunshine at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach.

One of those contestants was the beautiful Lindsey Way, who represented the Fort Lauderdale location and ended up winning the event. Lindsey has an amazing smile and incredible blue eyes, so our photographer Paul Miller was able to get some amazing photos.

Check out Lindsey’s slideshow above, and check back as we’ll be posting more poolside photos of five more contestants in their bikinis.

Fort Lauderdale used to be the hottest hot spot in the world for Spring Break until the city cracked down on all the debauchery. Now it's finally coming back as a Spring Break destination.

We had Britney and Megan head down to the beach for some photos in front of The Elbow Room, the classic beach bar that's still standing on the beach.

  

Escaping the “Anywhere, USA” phenomenon

In his latest cigar review for Partagas – Spanish Rosado, Bob Hritsko addressed an interesting topic in the introduction.

Whether you travel a little or a lot, you can’t help but notice the “Anywhere, USA” phenomenon. This is the term that I have for the incorporating and franchising of Americas cities, where no matter what city you are in, it is getting more difficult to find something original, especially restaurants, bars or even retail stores. Whether I am in Dallas, Charlotte, Las Vegas or anywhere, there they are — McDonalds, Starbucks, Applebee’s, Chili’s, etc. They can usually be found near the suburban malls with all the stores you know, right across the street from the Holiday Inn, Marriott Courtyard, etc.

Many of you know that I will often seek out cigar-friendly bars and establishments in the cities I visit. The draw of doing so is simply to escape the boring, repetitive convenience of traveling to Anywhere, USA, at least once in awhile. I have found the cigar-friendly establishments to be often unique venues in themselves; all the big chains have to be politically correct and ban any type of smoking, so they don’t upset their mainstream client base. The other advantage of a cigar-friendly joint is that it tends to be a little more social in nature, as a smoke is a commitment of a chunk of your time. If you are in a hurry and want to be left alone, a cigar lounge is not the place for you. Chatting with the folks in these establishments will usually provide you with the local information about other original places to experience in town.

I recently had the pleasure of doing so recently in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., visiting one of the original cigar bars in Florida, Macabi Cigar Bar on Las Olas Blvd. Once inside this dimly lit, quaint bar, I knew I stepped off the beaten path. The founder/owner, “Pat” Patel, was on hand to greet me. The plentiful selection of cigars was presented openly along the walls of the bar, a concern at first, as I wondered if the cigars could be properly cared for and maintained in this atmosphere. I was assured that the humidity and temperature were monitored. I selected a Partagas cigar and settled in for an excellent selection of beers on tap.

We’ve lost quite a bit over the years as our country has become dominated by suburbs and strip malls. Like Bob, many of us appreciate it when you can find a unique spot. That’s why cities like New York and New Orleans still have so much charm – you don’t have to look hard at all.
