Will Beard and Mustache Competitors
Seek Accommodations at Hyde Park?

May 26, 2015

While it may be just wishful thinking, what if, Hyde Park could host the Beard and Moustache competition? 

A group of affluent players from Buffalo and Amherst who are interested in the fast growing sport of Beard & Moustache Competition have asked Mayor Dyster if he would build them a pavilion in Hyde Park with full length mirrors and provide suitable beard and moustache trimming kits and scissors.

The Mayor said the request is a sign of the booming facial hair diversity in the city and the growing interest in full and partial beards, from the classic goatee to the Zach Galafianakis to the elegant Van Dyke and a dichotomy of moustaches.

“Our men, and also our woman, with facial foliage - beards, moustaches and even side burns - are an important part of our culture now and we’re always looking for ways to accommodate our hirsute men, and our women. Beard and Moustache competitions may be unfamiliar to a lot of us but that doesn’t mean it’s not something that people enjoy, if we could find an opportunity for them to do that, we always want to accommodate.”

The Reporter is waiting to see DPW Director John Caso's analysis of costs.

City Controller Maria Brown said there may not be sufficient casino cash to throw in beard shampoo. Brown, who never had the ability to grow a beard, advised the mayor that the Acu-Trim Vacuum Stubble Razor may be less expensive than full beard kits.
