See Matt's argument here:
I only ask that people with mustaches and goatees be prohibited from entering the Beard Ball.
Let me explain:
You see, the mustache and goatee are the fanny- pack and visor of the facial hair world.
1. Fanny-packs: if you have a lot of stuff to carry; get a backpack. If you don't; just put it in your pockets. There is no reason to have a fanny- pack.
2. Visors: either wear a hat or wear a headband. There doesn't have to be a middle option for this.
Shave everything or shave nothing. Go beard or go home!
Well, Matthew, as much as we would love to hire my 6'7" brother to work the door & instill this rule, we're open to all sorts of facial hair creativity. We don't judge at B-A-B... o.k. that's not entire true... but on this night.... let us remember.... if you're judging, you're not loving.
It's for charity for Christ's sake!
