Hear Ye! Year Ye!
Birds Barbershop Calls All Barbarians,
Centaurs and Beastmasters for 3rd Annual Manfest
On Saturday, Dec. 5th from 2 to 7 p.m. Birds Barbershop on S. Congress Ave. and PartyEnds.com will bring Austin its 3rd annual Manfest. The merrymaking kicks off a month-long promotion at all Birds locations, where men will get half-off hair product all December long.
Moving from S. Lamar to its new location at Birds on S. Congress, this installment in the series leans more primal than Manfests of yore, with a parking lot overrun with olde tyme fixtures like smoked turkey legs, live action role players (LARPers), a jousting competition and a Conan-era photo booth featuring a real-live Centaur.
Birds will offer free “Barbarian Blowouts” inside, while Lone Star Beer and Cazadores Tequila sponsor with spirits served in Manfest signature steins. Attendees who arrive in full barbarian-through-renaissance gear will receive a drink line “Fast Pass” as a reward. In other words, if you wear chain mail or a loincloth, you get a dedicated bartender and no lines for all that free man milk. Come hither all you Stygian wizards, Seraglio concubines and Cretan Minotaurs: this Manfest’s for you.
All My Friends, our favorite LCD Soundsystem cover band, gets even the manliest of men to dance at dark, while a confidence rock DJ fills in the gaps throughout the day. Manfest the Third is located at 1902 S. Congress Ave., 445-0500. Sat. Dec. 5 from 2 to 7 p.m. For more details, visit birdsbarbershop.com.
