Movember Kicks Off With A Goodfriend

goodfriend

Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House goes all out to support Movember throughout the month of November. Last year, the Goodfriend team raised almost $5000 and their goal is to raise even more money this year. They will put together a team consisting of employees, family, and regulars to grow mustaches to benefit the Movember movement. They have enlisted the help of The Boardroom, Breckenridge Brewery, Sailor Jerry Rum, Puro Verde Tequila, Patron, and fantastic live music.

Movember is a global charity that uses the power of the mustache to raise “funds and awareness … to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.” Starting the month off clean-shaven, men grow mustaches while gathering donations from their friends and family for their efforts and  “prompting conversations wherever they go.”

This cause is near and dear to the owners of Goodfriend. The kickoff event will be November 1st, starting with a shaving event open to anyone who wants to join the Goodfriend Movember team featuring traditional straight-razor shaves from The Boardroom, a salon specializing in “a relaxed grooming experience for men.” Wyldwood Four, a Rockabilly band from Austin, will play as well.  On November 23rd, the excitement will continue with The HillBilly Casino, a rockin’ bluegrass band out of Nashville. For the final party on November 30th, Foxtrot Uniform, a rock and blues band from Fort Worth, will play and prizes will be awarded for the best ‘stache on the team.

Breckenridge Brewery will be supporting the Movember events at Goodfriend by releasing special beers throughout the month, including a special firkin of 471 Cherry PiePA, a cherry and cinnamon version of their venerable Double American IPA. Drink specials from Sailor Jerry Rum, Puro Verde Tequila, and Patron will be available throughout the month as well. Goodfriend is proud to partner with such wonderful companies to raise money for Movember.
