- 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
