Facial hair clubs aren't just for guys with big beards. They're also for small and carefully coiffed mustaches, a la Salvador Dali. And club meetups also are for women who like facial hair, says Chris Trew (pictured), local comedian and founder of the New Movement Theater and the New Orleans Facial Hair and Pleasure Club. The Facial Hair and Pleasure Club is cosponsoring the New Orleans Beard and Mustache Championships Friday, along with Louisiana Beard, which is based in Lafayette and also helmed by a bearded comedian. A few of the club's local beard enthusiasts competed in the National Beard and Mustache Championships held in New Orleans last September. This is the inaugural local competition, and winners will be crowned in categories for full and partial beards, natural and styled mustaches, freestyle facial hair and the women-friendly, faux- hair category "Whiskerina." The panel of judges includes barber Aidan Gill and T-shirt mogul Fleurty Girl. The Breton Sound performs. Admission $15.
