In college I use to work for Rusty Wilson the owner of Kite’s Bar and Grille and the famous Rusty’s Last Chance in Manhattan, KS. I was attending Kansas State and as most folks in Kansas know the bar district of Aggieville can be a wild and good time.
Well I use to put together this annual Beauty Pageant in April called “Beauty On The Beach”. We would get about a dozen girls every Wednesday and have three categories. Winners of the semi-finals would then compete in the finals. Will as you know with me I went bigger and better and got Budweiser to partner with me so our 1st Place Winner was over $2500 in cash and prizes. So the contest was huge and no one complains about women in Bikinis!
And then throw in the Billboard everyone saw of me in Manhattan!!!
