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 - www.mustachesummer.com - 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.
