I’m not always happy to see the holiday season upon us as November closes out. It means more traffic, more stuff to cram into the calendar and more of those obnoxious diamond commercials on TV. But the good news: The end of November also marks the end of Movember, that month out of the year when dudes can totally slack off on facial hair maintenance and attribute it to a higher cause. That cause is men’s health: The pledges for Movember participants go to prostate cancer research and other cancer charities. Obviously, this is a very worthy endeavor but maaaan ... the bar at The Landing last weekend looked like the sex offender registration line. Celebrate the shearing of those handlebars, pencil ’staches and the alarming number of three-week-old peach-fuzz efforts at the End-of-Movember Moustache Bash at Hotel ZaZa (2330 Leonard St.) at 8 p.m. Friday. Enjoy light bites, door prizes and a DJ ... but most of all, relish that shaving station, my friends. We all appreciate your efforts on behalf of charity, but we’ll be happy to see the smudge above your lip smoothed out — until next year, anyway. See dallasmoustache-efbevent.eventbrite.com for tickets, which are $20.
