Fringe Benefits

We’re not sure when “No-Shave November” became a thing, but we’ve learned a lot from this year’s iteration of the hairiest of months. Most importantly, we’ve learned that literally everyone who looks good with a mustache already had one to begin with. Considering that a thick, Ron Swanson-esque mustache is socially acceptable in all situations, it’s a safe bet that if you needed last month as an excuse to grow some lip fringe then it probably looks like crap.

Whether you have a good mustache or a pathetic one (or you just want to celebrate not having to hear the term "Movember" anymore) Sandbar Peoria’s End of Movember Party should be a fun time. In addition to holding a contest with a $500 prize for the best bristles, the bar will also have a barber chair on hand for men willing to part with their sub-par ‘staches.
