Ha Ha Beard

We've got a special guest beard to make your Memorial Day weekend that much more memorable! Meet Anthony! Half of B of D was on the hunt in NYC this past week and happened upon this bearded gem at an underground comedy show. This beard will make your belly laugh and your ears ache for more of his sweet, sweet tunes. His current beard is only 6 months old. Favorite part? He doesn't like to shave. What?!?!? He treats his facial hair to a shampoo and conditioning treatment every day---you know what they say, a man with a well kept beard also knows how to treat a lady! When asked what mama thinks, he said "she thinks it looks fine" (and with the same amount of emotion that you'd imagined). Last time his face was naked was over 4 years ago, just for the hell of it. Check out his work at www.anthonykapfer.com You'll be glad you did! Hopefully we can convince Sir Anthony to take his show on the road and head to Denver!

Beard Symmulation

 

Hey Denvereenos! Meet Mr. Symm! We owe another huge 'thank you' to our lovely freelance beard huntress, Carrie, for her beard capturing skillz during a recent Gov's Park outing. It was at that fine establishment that she met Mr. Symm (or Sim? Sorry, buddy). Symm is a self taught architect and (similar to sweet Care-bear) does some freelance work of his own. This lover of traditional style design stays true to his art and maintains his beard in a classic style. Symm has a special lady that shares his sense of good taste--she's never experienced his naked chin! Lucky lady! Thanks for letting us capture your handsome mug, Symm!

Charlie Parr-Fect Beard

It’s no secret to regular Beards of Denver readers that we love the Hi-Dive, and the bearded me of the Hi-Dive sure seem to love us. On a recent Thursday night, we again made the short trek to the Hi-Dive to catch the musical styling’s of Mr. Charlie Parr. Charlie, who hails from the lovely (though usually frigid) city of Duluth, Minnesota, not only brought the house down and had the crowd kicking holes in the Hi-Dave dance floor with his original and piercing style of bluegrass/rock, he also was kind enough to talk with us about that stellar beard of his. Charli’es had his beard since he was about 16, when it assisted in his efforts to purchase cigarettes. His wife of over 20 years loves his beard—she even laughed at him on their wedding day for trimming it too short. Charlie does a close shave about once a year, but doesn’t actually shave, he explained; he bought a set of dog clippers (complete with a poodle logo) at a yard sale years ago and continues to use those—sans any attachments—to trim his great beard. Charlie’s next stop after Denver was to head to Europe for some shows; he told us a film crew from Paris was also shooting a documentary about him, which we hope prominently features his beard as well. Charlie also told us his young daughter loves his beard; except when her tootsie roll pop gets stuck in it (true story) and then the transferred hair doesn’t go over too well. All we can say is, if you get a chance to see Mr. Charlie Parr play don’t delay one minute; you will have the time of your life; the beard, in this case, is the added bonus.

It’s no secret to regular Beards of Denver readers that we love the Hi-Dive, and, based on the number of bearded men we have encountered there, it sure seems to love us.

Charlie also told us his young daughter loves his beard, except when her tootsie roll pop gets stuck in it (true story); she much prefers her dad’s beard on his face than on her candy.  If you get a chance to see Charlie  perform don’t delay one minute; you will have a blast. The beard, in this case, is the added bonus.

Broken Bones lead to Bad Ass Beards

Here at Beards of Denver, we love Opening Day Baseball more than we love bacon (I know, that’ll come as a shock) and ALMOST more than we love beards. That’s why we were especially delighted to meet Walker after the Colorado Rockies Opening Day victory a few weeks ago. Hanging out in the back patio area of Scruffy Murhpys, we couldn’t help admire Walker’s amaze-balls red beard and Mohawk to boot. Walker, who works at Beatport (essentially the iTunes for DJs—get on over if you haven’t heard of it, and if you haven’t, srsly, where ya been?) and broke his femur in August playing some hacky-sack outside of work. While in the hospital he couldn’t shave (or didn’t feel up to it) and grew out his beard.  Get this, beard lovers: he NEVER HAD ONE BEFORE. We were, of course, aghast, because just LOOK at it!? Walker and his fabulous girlfriend Zhawna are Denver natives, and she’s encouraging him to keep the beard at least a year (we say, go for eternity). At any rate, pretty much no better way to wrap up an already awesome Rockies Opening Day!

Here at Beards of Denver, we love Opening Day Baseball more than we love bacon (I know, that’ll come as a shock) and ALMOST more than we love beards. That’s why we were especially delighted to meet Walker after the Colorado Rockies home opener victory. Hanging out in the back patio area of Scruffy Murhpy’s, we couldn’t help admire Walker’s amaze-balls red beard and Mohawk to boot. Walker, who works at Beatport (essentially the iTunes for DJs—get on over if you haven’t heard of it, and if you haven’t, seriously, where ya been?) broke his femur in August playing some hacky-sack. While in the hospital he couldn’t shave (or didn’t feel up to it) and grew out his beard. Get this, beard lovers: he NEVER HAD A BEARD BEFORE. We were, of course, aghast, because just LOOK at it!? It is simply fantastic. Walker and his fabulous girlfriend Zhawna are Denver natives, and she’s encouraging him to keep the beard at least a year (we say, go for eternity). At any rate, pretty much no better way to wrap up an already awesome Rockies Opening Day!
