The MBMC Has a Home!
The Midwest Beard and Moustache Club now has an “official” place to call home for meetings and get-togethers. The Anchor in Wichita is a great pub with great food and great service. The Anchor is funky little place that serves great import and domestic beers (20 on tap and more in bottles), has some of the best tasting food (I eat there for lunch quite often), a full service espresso bar with a seemingly endless array of great coffee drinks, and friendly service. I was looking for a place that served good drink, good food, with good service in a relaxed atmosphere – I looked no further than my first choice: The Anchor. The Anchor is located at 1109 E Douglas in Wichita, Kansas.
MBMC now a division of BTUSA!
The Midwest Beard and Moustache Club is now an official division of Beard Team USA ! My thanks to Phil Olsen of BTUSA for this honor. You can take pride in knowing you are representing the USA in the world of beards and moustaches. The goals of the MBMC and BTUSA are one in the same: fun, friendship and camaraderie and making the USA a true power on the international stage of beard and moustache competitions.
