I notice you have posted a few events in Austin. It's a pretty long haul for me to attend (living in Norway), but I travel to Austin (dripping springs) every summer, so if there's any events in July I might attend :)

So what is up with the "Shave it" part of the title?  That is enough to keep me far away.

Hopefully they are not talking about beards? But I agree, strange choice of words.

I don't know of anything at this time, but check the Austin Facial Hair Club' website to see if they have anything going around the time that you would be there. They often have social events and club meetings.    I live about 3 hours driving time north of there.

It's play on the Texas slogan "Come and take it"  which goes back to the Texas revolution from Mexico.  It's a big part of the Texas history and it was a fighting challenge or dare, to the Mexican Army to come take a prized cannon.

I still think the "Come and shave it" wasn't the best choice for the play on "Come and take it", I agree with Slybeard that would keep me away from the event. haha  maybe "Come and take first place" would have been a better title :)
