I don’t know who else’s grandma spewed them this lie, but mine always told me that if the first words out of my mouth on the first of every month weren’t “rabbit rabbit”, I’d have bad luck for the next 30 days.
This morning Toby Keith rang out as my 5am wake up call and my first words were “ugh, damnit”. Between Toby and the swearing, I believe it’s safe to say my March is doomed.
Luckily for the rest of you, March is bound to be a fantastic month because Beard and Stache Fest is finally here! There’s about a million events and I really encourage you all to check them out frequently on our site. I’ll be posting about some as they’re coming up, but there’s definitely more going on than what’s written on the blog!
Take for instance, tonight. Stubble Trouble is happening at 7pm in Fremont at 9 Million in Unmarked Bills. Local artist Ryan Johnson will be sketching what YOU’D look like if you had one of those big, bushy beards we’ll have plastered on our donation cans and then projecting your fuzzy face on the big screen! There will also be some live country music and a DJ spinning an electric mix later that night. Can’t wait until 7 to see who you’re voting for? Check out all of the contestants online! If you can’t make it out to an event you’re also able to vote as many times as you want online, so click away!
All donations acquired from Beard and Stache Fest will be going to theTreehouse Organization. Treehouse is a fantastic Seattle nonprofit that provides clothing and personal needs, as well as important services like education assistance to children growing up in the foster care system.
Do you have today off work and are looking for something free to do? Or are you contemplating playing hookie and needing just a little push to get over the decision-making edge? Well it’s the first Thursday of the month, and you know what that means!
FREE SAM ADMISSION DAY!
Every first Thursday of the month the Seattle Art Museum opens its doors and charges you NOTHING to walk right through them. It’s really a phenomenal steal and I highly suggest you go. They’ve got some cool exhibits, including ‘Picturing the Artist’, which features photographs of esteemed artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. The website also says there’s free wine and espresso. Maybe I’ll consider heading there after work, sipping some wine and being all classy, then bussing to Fremont to get my nappiness on at 9 Million with the beardos!
Check back tomorrow for some fun ideas of how to spend your weekend AND more info on that amazing pancake breakfast!
