The Marker Waterfront Resort located in the southernmost city of Key West will be hosting its first ever pin-up girl contest, in partnership with M.I.A. Beer Company and Southernmost Tattoo. Guests and locals can enter to strut their best 1950’s-inspired looks on Saturday, October 1 at the Old Town Key West property.
Judges for the contest will be picked at random from a $5 raffle. First, second and third place pin-up girls will receive a prize pack including gift certificates to Southernmost Tattoo, local Key West vintage clothing stores and other prizes to make their pin-up girl dreams come to life.
The contest will take place at the Marker Resort’s poolside area starting at 5 p.m. M.I.A. Beer Company will host a tap takeover for the event featuring some of their fan favorite brews including Miami Weiss, Tourist Trappe, Snowbird and Moo over Miami.
As an ode to Miami’s Cuban culture, the Marker will also be hosting a pig roast during the contest, complete with mojo-style roast pork with rice and beans for $15 per plate. To compliment the dishes, specialty cocktails featuring the M.I.A. brews will be available for $10.
The Marker will donate a portion of its event sales to the family fund for Piero Rodriguez – the late founder of M.I.A. Beer Company. Additionally, proceeds from the raffle will go to Sister Season, a Key West non for profit that provides help to those tourism-related industries who experience economic hardships.
Entry to both the event and pin-up contest is free. Guests and locals looking to participate in the contest can contact Shawna Allen at [email protected]
