Just a friendly reminder to the loyal reader of Grubb Hub (you know who are, sitting there in your bomb shelter, cleaning your guns from your large stockpile of weaponry, wearing your eye patch, and sending out coded messages on your ham radio you know damn well no one else can understand) that ‘Stache Bash will soon be upon us. More specifically, it’s this Saturday, December 4th from 8 p.m. to midnight at The Outfield at Mike Shannon’s Steaks & Seafood in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.
‘Stache Bash is a rip-roaring good time, complete with dudes and facial hair and grunting and burping. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of women burping there too, along with great bands like Hazard 2 Ya Booty (who, according to the AMI, really are a hazard to your booty) and Chicago’s very own, the Flavor Savors. If that’s not enough to entice you, director Morgan Spurlock, who blew the whistle on McDonald’s with his acclaimed film Super Size Me (Spoiler Alert: Big Macs really are fattening) will be there filming a documentary. So maybe you’ll get a chance to make an idiot of yourself on camera.
Tickets are $15 in advance and at the door. They can be purchased in advance from the Movember web site. Professional drinkers can also take advantage of the OPEN BAR from 8-11 p.m. for an additional $25 at the door.

In the spirit of shameless attempts at self-promotion (self-degradation?) involving chicken, we at Grubb Hub not-so-proudly present the following short, independent film. It’s once again brought to you by our associates at the American Mustache Institute – as part of their ‘Stache Scale Analysis series that samples and rates products from the Mustached American perspective.
In addition to the doctor sporting the night club velvet rope ‘stache, this video also stars a real, live chicken. No, it’s not the San Diego Chicken, Chicken Little, or even Colonel Sanders. Those guys are all too expensive (or too dead).
Yes, if you enjoyed that spot of thespianism you might want to check out this little piece of web theatre (notice how “theater” is spelled the classy way – that means it’s good).
In it, yours truly portrays a workaholic, chain-smoking news reporter (with a mustache) going through a bitter divorce that somehow manages to uncover the real truth behind the origins of the American Mustache Association (and promptly flubs his one line in doing so by mispronouncing the guy’s name that runs the damn thing).
This scintillating video was to promote the upcoming ‘Stache Bash 2008, the coup de grâce (or cup of grass if you’re stupid) of the mustache community calendar.
If you’d like to see more videos starring the good pirate doctor, you can click on that link I just put back there. Or go to You Tube and search for it yourself. I don’t really care.
