SHAVING PARTY: Mustaches For Kids, a charity organization/mustache-growing competition, kicks things off with Shaving Day. More or less, it's a facial hair marathon. Growers sprout mustaches for four weeks during this holiday season, subject themselves to public humiliation, and raise money for children's charities. And tonight? You guys are at the bare stating line.

ART: Come see art produced students and alumni at the local real estate scam art school while enjoying music, free sushi, and super cheap drink specials. What's more, Academy Night happens downtown at a semi-fancy restaurant/nightclub -- perfect for those of you just getting off of work.
