Calling all lumberjacks and jills: Get ready to channel your flannel and dance your axe off!
LakewoodAlive will host Loving Lakewood: Lumberjack Bash presented by Geiger’s on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at The Bottlehouse Brewery Lakewood (13368 Madison Avenue). Guests are cordially invited to grow their best beard, don their finest Lumberjack attire and attend LakewoodAlive’s annual winter fundraiser for a log-splitting good time.
Proceeds from the Lumberjack Bash will support LakewoodAlive’s programming as we strive to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods in Lakewood. Much like lumberjacks, we at LakewoodAlive are renowned for our work ethic and not afraid to roll up our sleeves and get the job done.
The Lumberjack Bash will feature lumberjack-themed food, drinks, décor and entertainment. Attendees will be chopping at the bit to consume pancakes and bacon-wrapped sausage links, sample a Blue Ox cocktail, enjoy live music from Lost State of Franklin and partake in games and activities fit for a true Lumberjack.
VIP Ticket (Sold Out)
For the ultimate lumberjack or jill, the VIP experience will have you jumping out of your boots. Enjoy axe-ceptional drinks (a Timber! or Flannel Warmer) and fare (bacon deviled eggs and a pancake station) that you’ll want to sink your saw into. Blaze a trail to early admission at 6:30 p.m. and enjoy two drink tickets, heavy hors d’oeuvres all night, complimentary valet parking and much, much more. Live entertainment will not be lacking; you’ll dance your axe off. You know, as a VIP lumberjack, you’ll be very plaid you came!
General Admission Ticket (Sold Out)
Includes entrance to the Lumberjack Bash at 7:30 p.m., complimentary valet parking, brunch-style heavy hors d’oeuvres (think pancakes and bacon-wrapped sausage links), one specialty drink ticket (Blue Ox cocktail, anyone?), live music and Lumberjack-themed games and activities.
Attending lumberjacks and jills are urged to wear casual, outdoorsy attire: Jeans, plaid flannel, suspenders, winter hats and boots. Beards (fake or otherwise), hearty appetites and shouts of “Timber!” are strongly-encouraged.
Epic Beard Contest
The Epic Beard Contest presented by Men’s Cuts invites Lumberjack Bash attendees to compete for the opportunity to win prize packs in four bearded categories: 1. Most Unique Beard, 2. Sexiest Beard, 3. Longest Beard and 4. Best In Show.
Any Lumberjack Bash attendee is eligible to participate in the Epic Beard Contest, and participation is free-of-charge. Contest registration will take place onsite at the Lumberjack Bash on Feb. 25 between 7:30 and 9 p.m., with judging taking place at 9:30 p.m. The winner of each category will receive a prize, as well as bragging rights worthy of a true lumberjack.
Both men and women are encouraged to compete for the distinction of having the Most Unique Beard, as this category rewards creative beards not necessarily comprised of hair. Examples include beards made from yarn, shaving cream or cotton balls.
