Who Won Beard & Stache Fest? Find Out This Sunday

By master · March 1st, 2011 · No Comments

There are three burning questions that all Fremonsters have on their minds.

1. Seriously, who goes out there, like, every night and puts new stuff on the Waiting for the Interurban statues?

2. I’ve got this really good idea for a Thai restaurant, how do I open one in Fremont?

3. Hey, who won the Beard & Stache Fest?

The answer to the first question is “Pixies that live under the Fremont Troll.” Duh.

The answer to the second question is, “In the time it took you to think that, five more already popped up so think of something else.”

As for the third question…why don’t you head over to Nectar this Sunday to find out for yourself?

Join The World is Fun at Nectar on Sunday, March 6th at 7:30pm to check out who won the third annual Beard and Stache Fest. “Fabulous” prizes will be awarded to the top three contestants as well as to the top team of five.

There will be several beard-centric performances for your enjoyment including:

  • Bearded Rhythm, the dynamic duo of Seattle’s Adam Boehmer and San Francisco’s Ryan Calloway.Their partnered choreographies take root in the vintage jazz dance traditions of the 1920’s-1940’s, but with a modern humor and their own particular follicular flare.
  • The second annual Bearded Lady competition! Women will compete by donning beards and/or mustaches that they have fabricated out of ANY material – the more creative the better! Any woman can register on site (be there at 7:30pm) and the winning bearded lady will be chosen by audience applause, so be sure to make some noise for your favorite.
  • A special un-bearding. A bravely-bearded fellow has challenged YOU to help raise $500 to add to the total donation to Treehouse. If the $500 mark is met before his scheduled time, he will shave his beard off and bear all (or at least bear his smooth cheeks…and, no, not those cheeks) in front of the crowd.
  • Presentation of Beard & Stache Fest donations to Treehouse and foster kids of King County

The event is free to attend, though charity donations are appreciated. Go enjoy the bearded goodness and help out a worthy cause while you’re there.
