Sorry we have neglected this homepage for so long. We are still active, but our facebook is still the best way to follow our shenanigans.
Since our last post, we have been to The Boston Tattoo Convention, Rochester, Maine (a few times), New Bedford, Cape Cod, Detroit, Western MA, Austin, Richmond, probably some places I am missing and held another Whiskered Wonderland in Worcester.
So with that weing said. We are still bringing home trophies. We also have a new meeting place. If you ever want to find us, 3rd Friday of every month we will be at Somerville Brewing Company @ 15 Ward St. in Somerville (if that changes we will make a note of it).
Here's the link for this month: https://www.facebook.com/events/1711186822487038/
There is a ton of stuff going on this month so there isn't much room for a formal meeting, but we will get to that.
FIRST! The South Coast BMG will be holding a competition in New Bedford on Sunday the 12th as part of the city's Pirate Festival. https://www.facebook.com/events/632982883467353/
Then a few days later, travel up to Lowell to watch the spinners for Mustache Appreciation Night. First 1000 fans get a Dogman bobblehead complete with real (fake) mustache. Plus it's $1 hot dog night, so you can't lose. Tickets here: http://www.milb.com/promotions/index.jsp?sid=t558
Our "meeting" comes next. Going back to Stage Nightclub on Friday the 17th for a summertime visit with Santa. Brian Roy will be at the club with some elves. We have a VIP table with a bottle to share (bring your tip money). Doors at 9pm, free entry before 10pm, if you arrive later just mention you're with Santa. Please note their dress code. http://www.stagenightclub.com/faqs/
Last couple weekends are traveling competitions. Toronto on the 18th if you feel like making the trek. https://www.facebook.com/events/1597043133896315/
Or you can join a couple of the crew down in NC on the 25th https://www.facebook.com/events/1569333403322483/ OR if you can't make it that far away, the Live Free or Die Tattoo Convention with have a competition a little closer to home http://www.livefreeordietattoo.com/2015/schedule-of-events.php
Not so much of a formal meeting this month, but kind of a celebratory get together. Bert is redoing his wedding and you've all been invited! No facebook page for this event, but you'll all be there so this will be our "meeting."
The following week, Hartford will be holding it's competition with Brian behind the judges table. https://www.facebook.com/events/845628195509874/
Sorry folks, we will have to forgo a meeting this month. Life gets hectic you know? Anyways, that doesn't mean we can't have some fun.
On May 16, NYC's competition is finally back with Bert behind the judges table https://www.facebook.com/events/1551696418434657/
And not but 2 weeks later, if you feel like getting in a car and driving down to Charleston, SC you will find yourself having a damn good time. https://www.facebook.com/events/838703072837501/
We are going to change things up a bit this month. Daytime meeting. What?!?! Yeah you heard me right. At 2pm we are going to head to Boston Burger Company on Boylston to start our day off. https://www.facebook.com/events/1047104561984396/
From there we will make our way down the street to hit up the Boston Beer Summit at 5:30. At the summit we have something special up our sleeves. Or I should say in our backpack. We are going to crown the best Brewer Beard and the best Drinking Beard. https://www.facebook.com/events/1412498522387903/
Before the meeting we plan on having a small group go down to Asbury Park for their annual shitshow competition. Let us know if you want to join. https://www.facebook.com/events/580916798677188/
And finally to wrap up April we will head back down tto Richmond Virginia in hopes of redeeming ourselves from last year and actually bringing home a trophy this year. https://www.facebook.com/events/760737980624592/
PSYCH! There is no March meeting. We are doing too much other crap this month! Three competitions in three different states.
First off is Whiskered Wonderland III. You know it. You Love it. You'll be there. Brad is coming all the way back from Detroit just to keep this baby going this year. THe least you can do is throwdown and party with us. https://www.facebook.com/events/406424542841227/
Next up we are back to Maine. Santa (Brian Roy) will be judging a competition that they have as part of their Facial Hair Festival (a week long thing they do, pretty awesome right?). https://www.facebook.com/events/1521796148096614/
And lastly, I hope these other two events will warm you up for a real party down in Philadelphia. Fights and ambulances are pretty normal down there. You don't want to miss your chance to come home with one of their dope trophies. https://www.facebook.com/events/1527977147417825/
On the last day of Februrary we will have our meeting. This will be a special one because it will be going a little later than usual. Why? We are going to Stage Nightclub.
At 7pm (our usual meeting time) we will hit up Sweetwater Cafe, then at 9pm when Stage opens we will walk accross the alley and head on in for a fun night of dancing. Any questions? Good.
BUT before we do that, on the 7th the Maine Facial Hair Club will be holding a small competition in Bowdoinham (where the fuck is that?). Let's show these brothers some love and steal a couple trophies.
We skipped November, but we are back! We had 5 people go down to Atlantic City. 3 competed. 1 placed. We will talk about this probably. We will also discuss next years events.
You know who we haven't seen in a while? Dan. Well, remember our last meeting when we were joking about going to The Littlest Bar? Well Dan plays music there on Saturdays and invited us all to watch him jam out on some friggin' pipes! We're gonna do it! I believe the show starts at 6pm, but in the name of consistency, we will keep the meeting at 7pm.
Feel free to show up early or late. We love you anyways. BRING EVERYONE! Let's fill this little bar!
We are going to Atlantic City, NJ next month for the weekend of the 22nd! We have a few cars already driving down and we know a few other local groups are making the trip too. Reach out and we can try to hook you up.
Today is the last day for discounted tickets using the code "theuniverseismine"
