I just can't get mustaches. I'm cool with scruff, I'm fine with beards, but there's something about that furry lip warmer that I'm just not onboard with. Even repeated viewings of what is obviously mustaches' main man can't convince me:
That mustache does everything! It flies a helicopter; it fights underwater; it drives a fast car!
And now, it celebrates a new store and raises money for charity. Philanthropic lip rugs! That just may make me come around to the mustachioed point of view.
Shop Good, a store I've written about before in my ShopGirl column, is moving to the Ninth Street neighborhood and arriving in 'stache-tastic style. To celebrate the store's grand opening, there'll be a Mustache Bash block party starting at 5 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 4.
New neighbors Iguana Mexican Grill, Sara Sara Cupcakes and Pachinko Parlor will provide treats, plus there'll be music from local bands (like Dr. Pants and Sherree Chamberlain) and art from Dylan and Amanda Bradway of DNA Galleries.
Part of the proceeds of the bash will go to The Spero Project, and remember that all of the great clothing, accessories and home decor at Shop Good benefits various nonprofits.
And those mustaches? Wear them proudly or pick up a faux-'stache courtesy of Shop Good so you won't feel naked for the party.
