Traditional Wet Shaving & More!
UPDATE: Register Now!
I found the following information at The Shave Nook:
The Great Shave 2012 is officially scheduled and will take place on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, at the Dank Haus, a beautiful German-American cultural center just a block away from the historic Merz Apothecary located in Lincoln Square. The Great Shave 2012 will run from approximately 6- 9:30 PM, and will offer a tremendous selection of local food and beverages from neighborhood chefs, brewers, retailers and restaurants.
This year ‘s location is a much larger space to accommodate more people along with a better space for live presentations. Though attendance will require a ticket, I have not yet received word as to the ticket cost, and have been informed the ticket cost is structured to merely cover the costs of hosting such a large event with food, beverage, experts, and giveaways! There will be seminars and demonstrations with some of the country’s foremost wet shave experts. There will be numerous shave industry vendors, like last year, there to present their shave products. As a reminder, attendees, last year, received goodie bags with outstanding samples.
This is an event that is open to all, including propsective vendors. In fact, prospective vendors may inquire about space with Anthony of Merz Apothecary.
I’d like to attend if my finances allow it; I’ve got some vacation days stored up. Started looking at plane ticket costs, and we’ll have to see what the final event ticket cost will be. Mantic59 (Sharpologist), Geofatboy (Shave Nation), and Lynn Abrams (Straight Razor Place) were among the guest speakers in 2011.
