The first annual Cinco de Mustache! extravaganza was a huge success! We had many excellent staches (pictures to come), many excellent hot dogs (meat mustaches, really), and many excellent times. I'm very excited about the future of Cinco de Mustache - I really am. People all over the country have gotten behind us and believe in the movement. We will bring the mustache back into vogue, one unsuspecting face at a time. So until the end of next Beard Season, have a happy, safe, and mustachioed Mustache Summer, all! Tom Selleck says you have to!

Some people get bored at work and spend their time looking up pictures of people with mustaches online.

And some people are so pumped about Cinco de Mustache that it hurts!

I found this whilst looking for awesome mustache photos to include in my awesome CdM! invitation. It reads like my manifesto.

Cinco de Mustache! is less than a week away!!!! Things to do:

- Eat lots of protein and concentrate on growing handlebars as far as they will go
- Construct attractive and mustachexcellent invitation
- Print out lots of pictures of excellent mustaches to hang around the Casa de Mustache
- Buy booze/mixers; cruise IMDB to find other awesome mustache movies
- Continue spending as much as 80% of my time talking about facial hair

Just a link for inspiration.

When I start believing that small handful of naysayers who don't believe in our cause, I turn to our Patron Saint, former Oakland A's reliever Rollie Fingers, for inspiration. He and his "Swingin A's" of the mid-70s are pretty much the high point of mustaches. These Boys of Mustache Summer give inspiration that you can have an awesome mustache and still be a useful, contributing member of society, no matter how far above society your mustache places you.

Another party confirmed!

My dream of a country...nay, a world united by a semi-ironic love of mustaches is coming true. Not only do we have confirmed parties in Philly and Denver, we have the backing of a Facebook group (and I can only assume a party at UCSB...Stevie?) and a confirmed party in Virginia Beach, VA.

This is making all our wildest dreams come true...

Ladies and gentlemen

Please remember that Cinco de Mustache! is a happy occasion. It may come naturally to feel sad that it is the end of Beard Season - a sad time indeed, because beards are pretty good and great - but really, you should be thinking of this as a celebration of the time ahead. And that time ahead is Mustache Summer. And that is a merry time indeed.

It's come to my attention

That this blog is listed as an official resource for a Facebook group. Buenos mustaches, fellas!

The latest development in CdM preparation is coming up with additional drinks for the festivities. Our original idea was The Mustache Ride, which is simply a shot of tequila with whipped cream on top. Trouble? Tasty? It doesn't matter, as Wes points out. "It's not supposed to be good. It's supposed to be awesome, just like mustaches." Well put, sir.

Taking this idea and running with it, why not come up with drinks, or at the very least rename existing drinks, named after excellent mustachioed characters. So far, the contenders:

The Ron Burgundy - scotch on the rocks
The Magnum, P.I. - anything with an umbrella in it
The Bandit - shot of corn whiskey
The Edge - car bomb

Mustache sighting!

I saw an excellent 'stache yesterday, and it made me very happy. It's hard for me to describe, other than it made me feel warm and alive inside - this guy's 'stache made me feel like home. Also, it kinda looked like a shelf, a place to keep his most valuable possessions, like mustache wax and the dreams of little children.

I bought patio furniture and a grill yesterday, so not only is my deck inhabitable and functional for Cinco de Mustache!, it's now ready to rock for general use and recreation. So if you live around Philly, come to my house and eat meat with me. I'll make it special for you and then we'll have a pants party. My deck will be full of win and awesome.

More ideas

So I was thinking that in the background of the CdM parties, there should be a constant rotation of mustache-heavy films. I thought of a couple:

Commando (Vernon Wells (the fat Australian dude))
Super Troopers (All except Rabbit)
Smokey and the Bandit (Burt Reynolds)
UHF (Weird Al Yankovic)
Three Men and a Mustache Baby (Tom Selleck)
The Pink Panther (Peter Sellers)
Cocoon (Wilford Brimley)
Anchorman (All)

Any conspicuous omissions?

Just in time for the most wonderful time of year

Courtesy of Wes - one of the most important innovations in the world since penicillin.




Mustache smileys. I think the last one will be me. First one will be Wes. Middle one is Ron Jeremy?

Also, if someone is lame, they're a straight stache.

Ground Rules

Cinco de Mustache is such a vibrant and magical time of year that it's easy for it to get out of hand. Therefore, some ground rules should be laid down and added to so that we have many-folded splendor to celebrate each year. Here is the law of the land thus far for the parties.

1) Mustache required for admittance. This can be an actual mustache (preferred) or a fake one - some creative people have a handlebar mustache tattoo on the inside of their index finger which they then put to their face. Other people (like I have) write "mustache" on the inside of their fingers. Good and great ideas like this will obviously be tolerated.

2) The Cinco de Mustache theme must be sung at least once as a toast and whenever else is deemed necessary by the host(s) or guests. The theme is sung to the Cinco de Mayo song, with the following lyrics:

Ai yai yai yai
Cinco de Mustache!
The kids that are hip they grow hair on their lip
They throw down their razors and don't give a shit
They grow and grow and grow
So let your mustache show
Ohhhh, yeaaaaaaa

This was stolen from a Less Than Jake record (Hello Rockview), so refer to that or the link at the bottom of this page - - for their rendition. That website also seems like a most awesome resource.

3) Awards will be handed out in categories including, but not limited to, the following:
- best handlebar
- best molestache
- best hulk hogan

Suggestions, of course, will be weighed and considered by our venerable panel of experts.

Confirmed CdM parties: Philadelphia, Denver.
Possible CdM parties: Boston

This works. I think we could even have a whole media kit up here.
