Flaunt Your 'Stache at The Bearded Gentleman Book Release Party on Saturday!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I can't explain how much beards turn me on.

I’m pretty excited to be hyping this event because it combines several of my favorite things in life:  facial hair, books, FREE stuff, and hot guys.  Well, I don’t really know about the last one, but I feel like if I talk about it like it’s true, it will be.  Because that makes a lot of sense.

Anyway, Allan Peterkin and Nick Burns have written this glorious book called The Bearded Gentleman:  The Style Guide to Shaving Face (which is getting rave reviews, btw, from some pretty notable sources, including Nylon, Out and The New York Times), a paean to all things beard-y and mustache-y.  In addition to being super snarky and witty, it’s also sort of a guide how NOT to look stupid with facial hair.  For instance, did you know that the Fu Manchu probably isn’t the most flattering ‘stache if you have a really chubby face like mine?  Neither did I.  UNTIL THIS BOOK.

Come mingle and celebrate amongst the bearded elite at the book’s release party at Powerhouse this Saturday!  Not only is there a best beard and mustache contest, which should be awesome in and of itself, but there will also be chances to win FREE services from Joe’s Barbershop, beard trimmers, and cold, hard cash.  And, if you’re very, very lucky, perhaps a FREE mustache ride.

The Bearded Gentleman Book Release Party at Powerhouse Saturday, June 5, 9pm – 2am 1347 Folsom St. (between 9th and Dore) [SOMA] $5 cover to benefit PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support)

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join eharmony.com and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
