You don’t have to go to the beach to find bikinis — or hermit crabs either. Tonight at 8, Around the Corner Saloon and Cafe in Lakewood hosts its third annual Ms. Around The Corner Pageant & Bikini Contest. Manager and co-owner Ryan Krivosh says it all goes down in three rounds: a bathing suit competition, beachwear modeling, and a short interview on why the contestant wants to be Ms. ATC. “Last year we had 300 to 400 people attend. We’re expecting a great turn-out again this year,” Krivosh tells us. Helping judge the talent are Andre Knott from Cleveland Browns Radio and Chad Zumock from WMMS. While the focus of the night is to crown a babe, don’t overlook the hermit crab racing — a sporting event rendered even more hilarious by the $3 brews and $4 cherry bombs. Aside from all the above, the event is simply a great meet-up for young Clevelanders. And lest the ladies feel left out, next week marks the Around The Corner Male Hot Body Contest. Krivosh says there’s no favorite to win either night — but we think he’s talking about the crabs.
