Down at Old Chicago last evening, hordes of fuzz-lipped men used their ’stashes as sponges, paintbrushes, barbells and muses during the third annual Mustache Olympics. After 42 dudes duked it out in a grueling evening of beer-soaked mustache marvelousness, these gents emerged victorious:
1st Place: Brandon Gunsaules
2nd Place: Aaron Perry
3rd Place: J.J. Hayes
Best Overall Mustache: Aaron Perry
Though Gunsaules and Perry initially tied with 39 out of 40 possible points, they had a mustache lift-off tiebreaker—using black office clips and fishing weights—and Gunsaules came out on top, lifting 17 ounces.
Overall, the Mustache Olympics raised $2,015 for Miracle on Idaho Street, Old Chicago’s annual free Christmas dinner for low income and homeless families. Think you can out 'stache these chumps? You've got a full year to turn out a top-notch tickler before next year's competition.
