Fight off the post-Halloween blues and check out some of the cool craft beer events happening around the Greater Los Angeles area.
Beachwood Brewing and BBQ Movember
When: Starting Friday, November 1
What: The annual, international charity event where men grow "moustaches" for 30 days to raise awareness and money in order to change the face of men's health.
To participate - SHAVE on November 1st. Grow and maintain that fabulous mustache throughout the month of November as a symbol of your commitment to raising awareness for men's health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer.
Become a member of the Beachwood BBQ Mo Team here: http://us.movember.com/team/1138053
Beachwood will close out Movember with a Mo Party fundraiser event on Tuesday, December 3rd at Long Beach where a portion of the proceeds will go to this important cause and a Mr. Movember will be crowned
Donation forms will be available at both Beachwood locations or make a Movember donation now: https://www.movember.com/us/donate/payment/team_id/1138053/
Where: Your face!
Why you should participate: Growing a moustache rules. It is a perfect reason to not shave for a month and to raise awareness in the process. Plus, chicks dig dudes with a creepy stache.
