Get your razors out, (*sniff sniff*) because it's that time again, Gents! That's right: it's time to get clean shaven for New Years Day so you can enter the 4th Annual Adirondack Donegal Beard Contest.
From New Year's Day (January 1) to St. Patrick's Day (March 17), all contestants will grow a Donegal beard, starting from a completely clean shaven face. The Donegal beard is also known as a chin strap or Lincoln. There is no mustache or soul patch: just a beard.
Judges will be assessing and awarding prizes for winners in the following categories: manliness (grrr, baby), length, fullness, and style & sophistication.
The contest will be held at Bail and Wicks (used to be Casey's North) on March 17th from 4 to 7 p.m, with judging beginning at 6 p.m. In addition to the contest, there will be live entertainment.
Basil and Wicks is located on Route 28 in North Creek, New York.
