Whether you’re sporting the lumberjack look, the ZZ Top look, the I-forgot-to-shave-this-morning look, the handlebar hipster ‘stache, or the bearded lady look, there’s a place for you here. This Saturday at Warsaw, the Gotham City Beard Alliance are holding their third annual Beard and Mustache Competition.

All proceeds from the event will go to the local NYC MS Society chapter. Buy your tickets now!
