Gentlemen, (and a certain group of select ladies) put away your razors. Today marks the first of 28 days of unbridled follicular growth. (yes, follicular is a word. look it up.) Sound vague? Let me explain.
A group of 100 facial-hair growing contestants have come together in a month-long competition consisting of two wheeled races, nights out and lots of fun to benefit local charity, Treehouse. Tonight, Blue C Sushi marks the kick-off of this competition. While the thought of beards and ‘staches mixed with raw seafood and udon have been met with conflicted emotions, no one can argue that the cause is wonderful, and that it will be entertaining. Proceeds benefitting Treehouse will help fund their multitude of programs that support the positive growth of foster children. So if you’re not excited about the other kick-off happening today (and if you’re reading this, chances are you’re not), join a sea of hair and fish alike and vote on your favorite fuzzy sculptures for a good cause!
