Benefit Sol-stache celebrates solstice, facial hair
Citizen Staff Reports 12/19/11
The fourth annual Winter Sol-Stache will take place Dec. 22 at 7 p.m. at Mekong Restaurant, 6004 W. Broad St. A fundraiser for prostate-cancer research, the event celebrates facial hair in addition to the winter solstice, and awards mug trophies for mustache categories that include the chevron, walrus, handlebar, horseshoe, Zappa, pencil, and the combination of English, Dali and Fu Manchu. The event will also include mustache-themed games such as "Pin the 'Stache on Selleck." Fake moustaches are also allowed to participate.
Local musician Derrick Englert says he was inspired to create the event by the 1993 death of musician Frank Zappa, a 'stache wearer and a victim of prostate cancer. Englert has also had family and close friends die of prostate cancer. For information about the event, call 288-8929.
