Beard and Mustache Federation meeting
Chattanooga’s Beard and Moustache Federation will hold their September meeting tonight at Burns Tobacconist downtown after a three-month hiatus. What is this about? According to their Facebook page, the federation is all about “growing beards and moustaches for America!” In addition to promoting facial hair (women are not excluded, by the way), the group opposes discrimination against the bearded, mustachioed, sideburned and goateed. At the event, you can expect drunken revelry, tobacco, the spinning of old 78’s and a camaraderie that can’t be found anywhere else. All are welcome.
When: 7 p.m.
Where: 723 Cherry St.
