Have ‘stache, will party

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The next two weeks are a very good time to have a badass mustache.

This Saturday, Lakeview party joint Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort hosts “Fatty’s Fan Favorite Party,” honoring its fan favorite cover band, ’Stache.

The band will play starting at 8, and mustache homages will include fake mustaches given out at the door, 100 bucks for the person with the best real ‘stache and Cubs tickets for the best fake ‘stache. The bar will also serve $4 Dos Equis bottles (normally $5) and 32-ounce “Bone Fish” fishbowls (rum, OJ, cranberry juice, grenadine) will be $6.

But the ‘stache party is just getting started. Join the Young Irish Fellowship Club on August 29 for “The ‘Stache Bash” pub crawl in Wicker Park. Participants are encouraged to grow out their finest cookie dusters and party for a good cause (namely the Maeve McNicholas Memorial Foundation to fight pediatric brain tumors, the Matthew Lee Bailey Foundation, the Michael J. Murphy Music Scholarship Fund and Raising Awareness, which supports MS awareness).

The crawl costs $20 and kicks off at Pint at 12:30 p.m., followed by Wicker Park Tavern (2-3 p.m.), Northside (3:15-4:15), Cans (4:30-5:30) and Lottie’s Pub (until 8 p.m.). There will be specials at each bar, and you gotta imagine anyone who can grow out a halfway decent handlebar deserves a free drink or three.
