The Albany Bearded Gentleman's Club

albany bearded gentlmans club mustache photoLet it be known: The first meeting of The Albany Bearded Gentleman's Club is at Patsy's Barber Shop in downtown Albany this Wednesday (January 22) at 6 pm.

From the event description: "Come down and meet the other members of the Club, get some great facial hair advice on care and shaping from some of the finest barbers in Albany and enjoy some comradery and light refreshment."

We asked club founder Will Vondoome for the quick background on the club (link added):

I've been in contact with Beard Team USA, which organizes the annual National Beard and Mustache Championships and represents the United States at international beard and mustache competitions. This is the first step toward creating a local chapter of Beard Team USA that could support participants who want to grow facial hair for serious competitions, as well as have at least one local fundraising competition event per year. Men and women who have or appreciate facial hair are welcome.

It's a shame I'm not single. I'd be a beard groupie.

There was never a second meeting, and the club has vanished from Facebook
