Description [edit]
Riverwest can be seen at its best at the Uptowner. The beer is rather inexpensive, especially if you order a good ol' PBR ASAP.

Interesting artwork lines the walls, and the crowd ranges from young punk rockers to older regulars. It all comes together at the Uptowner, "home of the beautiful people."

Here are the definite categories so far: •Freestyle Facial Hair – This category incorporates any freestyle facial hair, including partial beard, mustache, and full beard freestyles. Full beard with styled mustache will be included in this category so go all out. This category is the “anything goes” category. Unnatural hair coloration, extreme styles, braids, rubber bands, adornments, jewelry are allowed as well as classical freestyles using spiking glue, gel, or hairspray. Your freestyle facial hair will be judged on originality, style, symmetry, and groom. •Partial Beard – This category includes all partial beards styled or natural. Including Goatees, Van Dykes, Sideburns, Whalers, Musketeers, Chinstraps, Neckbeards, and any other beard which does not fully connect naturally to the hairline, mustache, cheek or chin. If you choose to style your beard for this category, classical freestyle rules apply. No wires, rubber bands, strings, or adornments including jewelry or other decorations for the beard or unnatural color dying allowed in this category. You will be judged on size, density, symmetry, and groom. •Whiskerinas– A creative category for the ladies. Not a lot of rules! You can use any materials you want to create your beard or mustache. Any fake beard or mustache that can attach to the face and be worn as a beard or mustache is allowed. You will be judged on originality, style, spirit and craftsmanship. •Best Mustache (Styled or Natural) – This category comprises all styles of mustaches including chevron, walrus, horseshoe, handlebar, fu manchu, and natural. This is a “mustache only” category, so must include a shaved chin and cheeks (sideburns are ok with separation from the mustache). Your mustache will be judged on size, symmetry, color, and density. No wires, rubber bands, strings, or adornments including jewelry or other decorations for the mustache or unnatural color dying allowed in this category. •Full Beard Natural 3” and Under – This category includes natural looking beards that are 3” or less as measured from the bottom of the lower lip to the tip of the beard as it hangs naturally from the chin. If you are 1/8th of an inch longer than 3”, you should trim or to go to the next length category. Beard must meet the hairline, cover the chin and have a mustache that connects to the beard.
