Mustaches Roaming the Streets of San Diego
November is also Movember, and over in San Diego, Calif., there will be "moustaches roaming the streets," in an effort to support the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation is the only moustache-growing charity that supports men’s health research programs by raising awareness and funds for men's health — specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. During November, men participating in Movember's initiative stop shaving their beards and mustaches in order to raise awareness and money for the good cause. Last year Movember had 1.1 million participants and raised $147 million worldwide, according to a press release.
In San Diego, you can expect specialty drinks, foods, and events that all are part of the Movember efforts to help raise awareness and to support the cause.
At this spot in Bird Rock, San Diego, executive chef George Morris has created the "manliest burger for this manly cause." The Le Beast Burger is a combination of elk, bison, and wild boar topped with Cambozola cheese, beer-battered onion rings, and smoked chile marmalade all in between a pretzel bun. For every burger ordered, there will be a donation made toward the Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego, for prostate cancer research.
On Nov. 13, this lounge is hosting its own Movember Party. Some of the profits from the door will go toward the Movember Foundation. All mustaches are welcome, and there will even be fake ones given out to those who don’t have their own mustache.
Supporting the cause with a sandwich is executive chef Mareyja Sisbarro. She has created the Mareyja’s Manwich, made with beer-brined corned beef Rueben with sauerkraut, Swiss, whole-grain mustard, garlic aioli, and pickles all in between a pretzel bun. $1 from each sandwich ordered will go toward the UC San Diego’s Moores Cancer Center to help prostate cancer research.
The Commons Bar
The Commons Bar and the San Diego radio station 91X are going to host "Stay Stachy San Diego" in order to "raise awareness and funds for men’s cancer." Events such as an Anchorman costume contest and raffle tickets will take place. The bar will also serve their signature Movember cocktail. For every drink ordered, there will be $2 donated to the Movember Organization. Don’t miss the party; it’s on Nov. 23 at 9 p.m.
