As we've all learned, some things in life are certain: death, taxes, hair loss ... you get the picture. Now, I think it's about time to add one more thing to that list: Spring Fling. Vital Signs has been putting on one rockin' show for 12 years now, and it shows no signs of running out of gas. Attendance grows every year, and more and more people from all over the country are drawn to it every March. It's not hard to figure out why, either: It has excellent weather, beaches, cruising, plenty of attractions, and one pimp-arific bikini contest. What more could a bunch of young, bald guys with goatees and Dickies shorts ask for? There are also many vendors and cool charity auctions, so parting with your hard-earned paycheck is a snap. Spring Fling had it all, and we got the pics to prove it!
