Beard and Stache Fest wants YOU!

It’s a new year and time to get ready for the Beard & Stache Fest. Every February, The World Is Fun puts together a month of fun events that celebrate facial hair while benefiting the good work that Treehouse does, helping kids in foster care.

Head over to the Facebook Page to RSVP, then come to The Hive Dive on Sunday January 9th between 1-4pm.  Get your photo taken and it will grace a donation can at one of the many local businesses involved with the event for the month of February. Your beautiful face raising donations that will go to support Treehouse.  At the end of the month, there are prizes awarded for most money raised, that- and you can feel good knowing that you did the right thing.

Dead Baby benefit for PJ

This is for a good cause, and it’s bound to be a good time. That’s a win-win situation. So come out to support, and to raise funds for a friend in need.


The next Dead Baby Club Ride, October 2nd will be ending at Cafe’ Metropolitan on Capitol Hill, 1701 E Olive Way
This ride will be a benefit to raise money to help our Club Brother PJ pay off medical bills from his massive head trauma last winter.

~show up @ 8:00pm
~$5.00 suggested donation at the door. (MORE IS BETTER!)
~Beer and Booze Drink Specials.
~Raffle: 3 Raleigh Bikes, Ortlieb Bags, Chrome Bags, Bike Art and more.
~Bands: Shit Gets Smashed and Throne of Bone.

All the proceeds from this event will will go to paying-off PJ’s medical bills.

And as a friend of mine said:

“I don’t want to see a bunch of Douches out there who are just there to grab some free beer and poach in on a DeadBaby ride.  I want to see some folks who will bring what they would normally spend on a Friday nite (and more) and donate it to a kid who’s life is forever changed because of this incident.”

True that.  This is about the community, and YOU are the community.
