Handlebar, porn-star and pencil-thin: These are just a few of our favorite mustaches. Recent years have ushered in a renaissance in facial foliage unseen since the halcyon days of the ’70s. And tonight’s The ’Stache event honors that most manly of lip accessories. “It’ll just be fun, celebrating the mustache,” says organizer Abby Jane Palmer. “It seems a lot of people like mustaches. I like mustaches. We’ll try to find the best one.”
Apart from a cash prize for the best broom in the room, the evening offers mustache-themed arts and crafts, a mustache piñata and music from Harpoontang and Grant Sabin. Still not sure it’s worth dragging your enormous soup-strainer down to be admired and judged by others? Palmer promises “some of the best mustache comedians in Denver,” including Kevin Fitzgerald, Chris Charpentier, Bobby Crane and more.
The night’s facial-fur-themed festivities begin at 8 p.m. at Deer Pile, 206 East 13th Avenue. (Get there early to snag the swag bags set aside for the first fifteen guests.) If your lip is bare of hair, a suggested donation of $8 gets you in; the mustachioed enter for free, naturally. For more info, visit tiny.cc/Stashe.
