Comstock Saloon to Host Mustache Waxing and Whiskey Drinking Competition


We don’t entirely understand how this will work, but in honor of Movember, Comstock Saloon is capitalizing on the copious and creative facial hair of many in the bar community with the second annual Whiskey Waxing Beard and Mustache Competition on November 28. In addition to the form and style of their mustaches and beards, contestants will be judged on their ability to sip whiskey or tea as well. Judging from the video of last year’s competition, they’re mostly being judged on how much whiskey they can throw back whilst still jauntily flipping their beards around in between shots.

There will be food available (for purchase), and the fun starts at 6 p.m. on the 28th, complete with old-timey barbershop quartet. And if you have a grand beard or mustache you’d like to enter into the competition, email Comstock at

Admission is $10 at the door, and you’ll want to RSVP with the number of people in your party to Wagstaff Worldwide at Proceeds go to benefit The Movember Effect.
