Last night, the East Village’s Blind Barber was filled with shorn whiskers and many a newly exposed jawline, as the men of Park & Bond took it all off in the name of Movember. Gathering with an assortment of friends, supporters, and straight-razor enthusiasts, the gents steeled any lingering trepidations with a glass of Bushmills whiskey and saddled up to the chair, all in the name of raising awareness (and funds) in the fight against cancers that affect men. For some it was just a shave, for others it was a sudden return to a distant, baby-faced past. But all agreed that it was for a good cause… and that the really weird part would emerge over the next few weeks, above the upper lip.
