Gather up your pomade and combs and get ready to style those moustaches, Movember is coming. The global movement to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues through the Movember Foundation hits Las Vegas this November at Culinary Dropout inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Pictured: My Suffering Bastard).
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization supporting over 800 men’s health programs dedicated to combating prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. Culinary Dropout is joining the movement this fall and invites guests to get in on the moustache magic by forgoing a trip to the barber until December.
Mo Bros and Mo Sistas can show their support by stopping by the restaurant throughout the month of November to snap a photo in front of a backdrop decorated with popular moustache styles. Don’t have a real ‘Mo’ to show off? No need to fret, faux ‘staches will be provided as well.
Photos will be uploaded to the Culinary Dropout Facebook “Movember Movement 2014” album daily at www.facebook.com/culinarydropout. The restaurant will donate $1 to the Movember Foundation for every photo posted and an additional dollar will be donated for every tag on the Facebook page.
That’s not all – celebrate your newfound facial hair with a masculine gin cocktail. My Suffering Bastard, with Plymouth Gin, black peach brandy, fresh lime and ginger beer, is available throughout November for $10 (regularly $12). Toast to Movember all month long with this recipe:
