This year’s Stache Pag is being held March 28, 2009 at Novare Res off of Exchange St. in Portland, Maine from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Contestants should arrive earlier for a photograph.
As always, the Stache Pag is dedicated to March Moustache Madness, and the importance of men growing moustaches. Because they can.
Here are the Category Descriptions for this year’s Stache Pag:
The Magnum P.I. – The natural or common moustache… this moustache is a full, well-integrated, friend of your face… not too flamboyant, but certainly stating something in bold print.
The Thigh Tickler- Where the moustache makes magic. These staches leap from the face, a la Handlebar, Fu Manchu, Pancho Villa and other fantastic pleasing pleasures. Judges tend to favor three-dimensional aspects and creative styling.
The Uncle Rico- AKA the “pornstache”, this category refers to moustaches belonging to men, for reasons unclear, not able to grow enough hair on their upper lip to enter either of the other two categories. No ringers: this category is for the guys who obviously let it grow for a while to look that way.
Honorable Mention – “Judges Discretion”.
The Stache Pag is Saturday, March 28. Please arrive before 7:00 pm to register and get in on the March Moustache Madness Toast.
First Round: Begins at 7:30. There will be a Lineup of all contestants in each category. Our five judges will rate each moustache on a 1 to 5 scale in each of the following areas (this list is subject to growth, based on new ideas in the days leading up to the stache pag):
Exemplification of Category
Top three total scorers in each category are the finalists.
In the final round, there will be three “competitions” for each of the three category finalists to compete in: the Stache Strut, the Drink of Stout and the Rapid-Fire Five-Second Statue. Crowd applause determines the winner.
Come enjoy the madness!
