Today's blog marks the 6th week of beard growth. Only two weeks left in the competition and the contest is getting hairy! Like last week, I'll be writing about a few of our wonderful sponsors that help make this competition a success by donating prizes to the winning categories!
Deluxe Indie Craft Bazaar is not your typical craft fair. Deluxe is an indie craft fair and community event where unique artists show and sell their work! If you're interested in finding some amazing local products, you need to check out this event. Put December 8th on your calendar and head out to the State Fair Centennial building from 11:00-8. Admission is FREE and there are all sorts of cool things to eat, see, and do!
Plan-It Landscape is owned by one of our contestants, Kevin Rhodes! Plan-It is a garden center and landscaping company located near Piedmont. If you're looking to upgrade your yard, this is the place to be. Kevin has become a great supporter of T&L in the last year and can regularly be found at Drink And Draw or LIVE on the Plaza with his wife and kids. Look no further for superior landscaping products and quality craftsmanship.
The Society is located right in the heart of the Plaza District and the formula for it's success is simply 'collaborate & progress'. There is always something cool happening at their space, and the art that comes out of the massive barn-like studio is stunning. Jerrod Smith & Phillip Danner share the space and constantly host cool art shows, video premiers, and concerts. They're always looking for passionate people to work with and always willing to build their community stronger. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and check their website for upcoming events.
Carwin's Shave Shop is so cool that I wrote a blog about it the first time I visited their store. The space is filled with men's grooming products and accessories. The store is located in Classen Curve and now has a barber chair for straight razor shaves! Along with providing shaving supply they also host a straight razor shaving class! Be a man (or buy your man some stuff) and head over to Carwin's for a great selection of manly stuff.
Fowler VW will not be donating a new car to you for growing a beard… BUT you'll get to rock a sweet Fowler VW anniversary shirt and some other cool goodies! Fowler VW does sell cool cars, but there is more to the dealership than meets the eye. Jonathan Fowler is one of the kindest and most philanthropic individuals I know. There are few big businesses that champion small business and art like Fowler VW. They have a long history of support with The Plaza District, The Spy FM, Mustache Bash, Norman Music Festival…etc. They take their cars seriously, but they put their heart in backing emerging artists, musicians, and community leaders. We couldn't be happier in having Fowler as friends with T&L.
Go spend your money with these people after you check out this weeks beards!
