“Movember” Takes Over American Social for the Mustachio Bashio 

No need to hold the handlebars, serious stubble is in fashion for fall. American Social on Las Olas Boulevard  is encouraging patrons to turn their backs on the blade in honor of Movember, an annual crusade to raise money and awareness for men’s health issues including prostate and testicular cancers and mental health. Starting this week  “MoBros” and “Bearded Broads” can enjoy a specialty Movember cocktail menu inspired by celebrity stashes (think: “Anchorman” hero Ron Burgundy, Tom Selleck, Jeff Foxworthy etc…).  Twenty percent of proceeds from the mustache men inspired cocktails sold during the month of November will benefit the Movember Foundation. Sip on the Ron Burgundy ($14), Crown Royal, fresh lime juice, muddled mint leaves, black berries and simple syrup; Hulk Hogan ($12), Grey Goose La Poire, St. Germain, simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, cucumber and a splash of club soda or the Charlie Chaplin ($13), a combination of Kettle One, olive juice and bleu cheese stuffed olives.

Fellow followers of the follicle fanfare can post their photos to American Social’s Facebook using the hashtag #amsomovember for a photo contest. The stylish ‘stache with the most “likes” each week will receive a $100 American Social gift card and entry into a grand prize drawing for a complimentary bottle and private, reserved booth for up to eight people. “Shave” the date for the culminating Mustachio Bashio from 7:00 to 9 p.m. on December 5th where “hairy hell raisers” will enjoy complimentary cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres, festive souvenir photo opportunities, mustache contests, prizes and the grand prize drawing.
