Get beard-y with the Root Cafe and the Times

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 at 3:02 PM


What with wintertime approaching and all, the folks over at the Root Cafe got to thinking maybe it would be a good idea to encourage the menfolk of Central Arkansas to keep their faces warm by growing big ol' beards.

And seeing as how competition and prizes can elevate even the most ordinary, everyday activities to the level of foaming-at-the-mouth blood-sport (which builds character, btw), they decided it would be cool if this beard-growing thing was competitive in nature. They asked the Times to be a part of it and we were like, "Yeah, we're down."

So here's what you've got to do if you wanna get in on all the fuzzy-faced action: You'll need to go into The Root to be certified clean-shaven on Dec. 1 between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Here are the categories for the First Annual Beard-Growing Contest: Longest beard; Thickest beard; Most original beard; Best Abraham Lincoln (no mustache).

The beard judges will deliver their verdicts at the South Main Mardi Gras celebration on Saturday, Feb. 9. Questions? Call 501-414-0423 or email: theroot at therootcafe dot com.
