WEEK 4 ‘STACHE FLASH: Seattle Men’s Mustaches Now Irony Free

Mr Geoduck - Week 4

Do you love 826 Seattle? Do you think kids are the future? Do you understand the importance of writing and learning? Do you believe in do-goodery?

If you do, and you want to support 826 Seattle but don't know any of the mustache farmers listed below, donate to Mr. Geoduck's mustache!

Mr. Geoduck is the cantankerous publishing magnate who owns Justa Geoduck Publishing Co. and leads school kids on the wild Mr. Geoduck Publishing Fieldtrip. He is grumpy and ill tempered, but his heart is in the right place. A $20 donation sure would lift his spirts!

This past week, we received an unexpected surprise in the Mustache HQ email in-box: a series of mustache photos that not only plays on the kitschy attraction of the ‘stache but brings to mind a plethora of head-scratching questions. Is this man a construction worker? A dancer? Where are his friends, the Indian and the cop? If he is at work, why is there wine on the top of the cupboard? If he is at home, where is his fridge?

We puzzled over these matters for some time, but decided in the end that Eric Delfel deserves a place of honor in this week’s Mustache Blog.

Lookin’ to support these mustacheers, howl along to “Shot Through the Heart”, and enjoy a Jell-O shot or two?

Head over to Magnolia’s Boxcar Ale House, Saturday, September 29th between 9PM and Midnight, for the first ever Mustache-A-roke! $2 Jell-O shots, karaoke, and more whisker madness than you can reasonably cram into a pub.

The Boxcar is located at 3407 W. Gilman Ave. in Magnolia (just a hop and a skip from 15th Ave. via Dravus).

Thanks to the generosity of Jen Koogler and Scott Rosen, we were able to offer two tickets to the LCD Soundsystem/Arcade Fire show to whoever had received the most money as of last week's weigh-in...and the honor went to Brock Grubb! Congratulations, Brock! Wear that mustache proudly at the show, and be sure to eye anyone else with a mustache (a non 826-'stache, anyway) with disdain...betcha they didn't earn their tickets through hard mustache fundraising work.

Speaking of, there are only TWO WEEKS left until our big mustache shindig (if this were a goatee contest, that would be a good place for a "chin-dig" pun, but is not the time or place), and thus the end of the Second Annual Mustache-a-Thon! Send out those pleading emails, ask your friends and coworkers for support in a wheedling know the drill.
