“Grow One for the Republic” Mustache Contest

If you are a Texas native, then you should have listened in your 4th grade Social Studies class and remembered that Texas Independence Day is coming up on March 2nd. In order to celebrate the day that our (bad ass) state broke away from our neighbors down south, Republic Tequila–the company which makes ultra-premium, 100% blue agave, certified organic tequila–is hosting a MUSTACHE contest to see what male (or female?) can grow the best. mustache. ever.

Tom Nall, Republic Tequila CEO and Texas legend, correlates supreme tequila and classic mustaches with our great state, because, as he says, “tequila and mustaches have long been a part of Texas history. Think about it, all the good cowboys have a mustache, and they all drink tequila. It only makes sense to celebrate these things together.” And with both the mustache and tequila still very much a part of our daily lives here in Austin (I mean, have you been living under a rock?), the “Grow One for the Republic” mustache contest will be held to honor the great mustaches of Texas’ past and to celebrate Texas Independence Day in a unique (yet perfectly fitting) way.

Entries for the contest must be submitted with the grower’s name, date of birth (must be 21+), city and state of residence, and (of course) the best mustache picture you have to offer. These MUST be sent to info@RepublicTequila.com by February 26, and the winner (a.k.a. the person with the finest mustache in the lone star state) will be announced on Texas Independence Day (March 2nd). And what, you might ask, is the prize for this crazy contest? The winner of the mustache contest will receive a trip for 2 to a Texas destination OF THEIR CHOICE (valued at $1000).

So, pull out all the stops and get to work growing the most creative and show-stopping stache that you are capable of growing in honor of this Texas holiday. Who knows? You could win and get the chance to travel to one of the many spectacular locations across our great state.
