Tonight: Capital mustaches at Lyon Hall

By Justin Rude

If you've been watching the Caps for the last month you may have noticed a few of the hometown heroes rocking some serious 'staches. No, this isn't a throwback grooming trend -- though we would welcome that, as the Capitals have a proud tradition of fantastic facial hair reaching back to Yvon Labre and including Rod Langway and Mike Gartner. Rather, lead by Jason Chimera, a number of the players are participating in a worldwide men's health awareness movement called Movember, in which participants grow mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically for cancer affecting men.

Well, as the month winds to a close it's almost time to bid adieu to the Capitals' best new aesthetic improvement since the team went back to red, white and blue uniforms. In the meantime, there is still time to donate, and join the participating Capitals for a celebratory party following tonight's game at Lyon Hall in Clarendon. Tickets for the event are $50, and will be available online until 7 and at the door. Your ticket includes a $30 donation to the Movember cause and three drink tickets that are good for beer, wine and liquor. There will be passes hors d'oeuvres, and the kitchen will be open and serving the restaurant's regular menu. A number of Caps, including Jason Chimera, Carl Alzner, John Carlson, Mike Green, Matt Hendricks, Jeff Schultz and Movember MVP Jon Erskine will be on hand as celebrity bartenders. It's a great price for a good cause, and one of your last chances to catch those majestic crumb catchers before they get mowed down.
