    I would love to win tickets because i am obsessed with the stache….looking for a good moustache ride and this has got to be the best place to find one right?

    I think mustaches and beards are hot… not in the ironic way. Let me be surrounded by the best!

    I have friends entering this contest, and I wanna support them!

    My friendly chops need to socialize!!

  7. Katherine January 21, 2011 at 11:27 am #

    I REALLY WANT TO WIN THESE TICKETS!!! Hahaha, this looks amazing! I’ll be visiting Portland this weekend with a friend, as Portland is a likely relocation prospect for us both. And like all other young, refined ladies, we LOVE FANTASTIC FACIAL HAIR! Please give us one more reason to choose Portland :)

  8. Emily January 21, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    This looks to freakin funny. I really wanna go see the crazy facial hair!

  9. Tim Holiday January 21, 2011 at 12:34 pm #

    I want to show my kids why it is cool to have a beard.

  10. Amy Chastain January 21, 2011 at 12:35 pm #

    Oooooh Yeeaah! Nothing beats a man with a sexy stache.

  11. Kristin January 21, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

    My mother-in-law is visiting and she has become obsessed with the quantity and quality of facial hair she has seen in Portland, on both men and women. This event is the perfect culmination of her trip and new found enthusiasm for facial hair! Oh, and my husband could use some inspiration for a new take on his own facial hair.

  12. Amy January 21, 2011 at 1:11 pm #

    I have a friend who I haven’t seen in FOREVER in the contest. PLUS, I have always thought extreme facial hair looks FANTASTIC!!! :)

  13. Erin January 21, 2011 at 1:35 pm #

    Classic Portland, would love to go!

  14. tyler January 21, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    As I can, alas, not grow proper facial hair I hope to go to see how it’s done.

  15. Matt January 21, 2011 at 2:32 pm #

    I celebrated my birthday earlier this week. This would be the BEST. BIRTHDAY. PRESENT. EVER.

  16. Aubree January 21, 2011 at 2:34 pm #

    I want to go!!

  17. ali joon January 21, 2011 at 2:38 pm #

    I can grow a nice beard. Whiskerino. Check it.

  18. Maggie January 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm #

    There is really nothing I enjoy more than a good, hilarious mustache. Beards are okay too. Plus, my roommate just quit her soul-sucking job, and I would love to be able to take her to this as an excellent celebration.

  19. sparkledarkko January 21, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

    My beard is entirely inappropriate for an all ages venue. But I’d still like to go!

  20. Sandra Walden January 21, 2011 at 2:43 pm #

    I NEED tickets. I love men with facial hair. I guess it’s a 70’s thing but updated. yeah that’s it.

  21. sherrie January 21, 2011 at 2:44 pm #

    my husband has been growing out a beard for the last few weeks and i keep telling him to aspire to something like this! we’re still trying to figure out what shape would look unique and cool on his face. this event would certainly provide inspiration (and a few “wows” and chuckles, i’m sure)… pick me and i promise to email you pictures of his newly coiffed beard thingy.

  22. jimbobber January 21, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

    I would like to win because I need a reason, any reason, to get me out of the house.

  23. stephanie grijalva January 21, 2011 at 2:48 pm #

    this is amazing?!!! i’ve never heard of such an amazing event!! my boyfriend would LOVE this event, and he (of course) also has a beard! men in portland & their beards… :)

  24. Laura January 21, 2011 at 2:48 pm #

    I’d like to bring my visiting ex-boyfriend, who, despite eight years of asking nicely, never once grew a beard or mustache for me, despite having the follicles for it.

    He needs to see why I left him for Portland.

  25. Mindi January 21, 2011 at 2:49 pm #

    My fiance would love this so much!!

  26. Rob J January 21, 2011 at 2:54 pm #

    I really want to go and check out the different sytles to get ideas of my own.

  27. Amanda M January 21, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    My husband and I are both tragically unable to produce spectacular facial hair, and thus would particularly treasure a chance to view the West Coast’s premiere moustaches and beards!

  28. Dana Ziolkowski January 21, 2011 at 2:57 pm #

    did you see that photo of the charming, white “octopus” bearded man on your email you just sent? do i even need to explain why i want to attend this event after seeing that picture? purely awesome. please send me tickets!!

  29. Chris January 21, 2011 at 3:11 pm #

    I’d like to see the beards and mustaches that the West Coast has to offer. Any event that affiliates itself with a mustachioed beaver is all right by me.

  30. Missy January 21, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    Finally a date night that rocks!!

  31. Ben U. January 21, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    As a beard grower, I respect the stash… I would love to see this event!

  32. Curious Observer January 21, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    I need to ask these fellows (and ladies!) how they are able to enjoy their Stumptown without mussing those fabulous sculptures.
    Do they caffienate through a straw?
    Free tickets would be much appreciated

  33. Dawn January 21, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    OMG I wish I could enter my husband into this

  34. Lorelei January 21, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    I’m trying to be more accepting of beards and this would show my bf that I’m on board!

  35. Emily M January 21, 2011 at 4:14 pm #

    I’m new to Portland and would love to see this!! I would promise to be a good spectator and cheer on the best mustaches!

  36. Gabe Genauer January 21, 2011 at 5:10 pm #

    I need to go to this event for inspiration. 10 buddies and I are going on a ski trip at the end of Feb. and the theme is creepy mustaches. None of us have shaved for a couple months now and I need to figure out what my options are for the stache when it comes time to cut and shape…now I am but a blank canvas…pick me, pick me!!!

  37. Curious Observer January 21, 2011 at 5:44 pm #

    Did someone win?

  38. Thea January 21, 2011 at 5:50 pm #

    I am an aspiring beard/moustache stylist and I need inspiration and contacts!!! PLEASE help me bedazzle my fierce bearded friends!!!! I will not disappoint you!

  39. Kyle January 21, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    My beard is single and it’s ready to mingle. Pick me, baby…

  40. pt. mclean January 23, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    To beard or not to beard, that is the question…

  41. Christian Fooks January 24, 2011 at 3:41 pm #

    I WANT THOSE TICKETS. My Stache is looking pretty sweet and would love to see what is out there. If I win I will promote the hell out of this event.

  42. Erik December 16, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    I want to go cause it’ll be amazing people watching!

  43. Julie Tillman December 28, 2011 at 11:58 am #

    Because I make art about mustaches and beards and I need lots and lots of muses! Pretty please!

  44. Buster H. January 20, 2012 at 9:28 am #

    I was in the CAKE moustache man video that was shot in Nov. at Holocene and want to see my Portland peeps compete.
