GROW-A-BEARD

#GrowABeardOK Award Party!

GROW-A-BEARDDusty GilpinComment

We had a great time hanging out at Anchor Down on Wednesday night. Always a fun evening getting to throw back a few cool Coors 'yellabellies' with the contestants! If you haven't been to Anchor Down, you're really missing out on some great food and an awesome atmosphere. It is located in a renovated shipping container in Oklahoma City's Deep Deuce neighborhood. Brought to you by the creators of The Mule, so you know it's going to be a delicious adventure! 

We filled gift boxes full with Tree & Leaf goodies and gift certificates from Carwin's Shave Shop, Keep It Local, and Plan-It Landscape. After the contestants had their fill of corn dogs, we announce our winners!

#GrowABeardOK Week7

GROW-A-BEARDDusty GilpinComment

Alright gents! Only one week left and 1 more picture to go. With that said, our dear friends at Anchor Down are going to host our final beard party shenanigans on Wednesday, December 2nd from 8 - 10:30pm. We'll have a few cold brews, a couple warm corn doggies, and announce which of you fine fellows will win some stuff!

Along with next week's final #GrowABeardOK post, I will include a link to an online poll where users can submit their vote for each category. The poll will be available online until the party. We will then use the results to announce the winners. I look forward to hanging out with you guys, I hope you can all make it. You are absolutely more than welcome to bring friends along.

Alright! Let's get to bearding!

"Team got our championship rings last night! We finished the season ranked #7 in the country, and beat the California state champs in our bowl game. Oh, this is for semi-pro football, by the way. Not Mashed Potato Eating or something like that...although........."   Congrats, dude! Freakin' Outlaws!

Best thing about having a beard is that I don't have to smile any more.
