Saturday’s Rico Stache Bash is a mustache and beard competition at Barley’s Tap Room and Pizzaria, 200 E. Jackson Ave. in Knoxville. The event benefits the Small Animal Oncology Service at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Contest categories include "Best Place to Hide a Critter" and "Welcome to Puberty."
This event, now in its eighth year, was created by Dave Kirkendol, who wanted to repay the department for being so good to him when he lost his dog, Rico, to cancer.
Registration is 8:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. A silent auction is 8:30 p.m.-10 p.m. The fee to enter the contest is $5 Brendon James Wright and the Wrongs will preform after the winners are announced.
There will be a $3 donation request at the door.
