Home Plate BBQ hosted the facial hair affair of the season last Saturday. The first-ever Mr Maovember Contest saw plaques awarded in a number of categories, from ‘best styled mustache‘ to ‘best business beard‘. Each contestant took the stage to announce the category in which he was competing and to tell personal facial-hair related stories, whether it was a much-loved ‘stache style or how a celebrity — say, Tom Selleck — had inspired him. Both contestants and observers also enjoyed a range of beverages from Jing-A, Karl Strauss, Kentucky Bourbon Ale and Table & Vine, with proceeds going to charity. When the last award was given and the last Four Pillars G&T, Fireball shot and craft brew consumed, 1880.5 kuai had been raised for Maovember.
