Bearded & Tschorn: John Oates to flash the 'stache at hairy Halloween bash
First was Sarah Silverman's "miss 'stache" from Sunday night's Emmys telecast, which apparently blossomed sometime between her walk down the red carpet and the moment Justin Timberlake read her name as a nominee for best actress in a comedy (the honor ended up going to Toni Collette). Yes, the Eric Holder-style batwing mustache was a silly sight gag, but it's my kind of silly.
On its website, the AMI calls the annual event "a ridiculous celebration of mustaches and music" -- with a charitable angle (it's a benefit for a St. Louis organization called Challenger Baseball). As you may know, I've spent some serious time with facial hair enthusiasts, and it's a pretty safe bet that if you end up finding yourself in St. Louis the day before Halloween, they'd show you a good time.
That same evening, the group will recognize the "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" -- submissions will be accepted until Oct. 2 if you know of a deserving 'stache holder (last year's was retired New York City police Det. Tim Galvin).
