Movember at Del Frisco’s Grille

November marks the intersection of most of my favorite things: pumpkin season, an acceptable time to start listening to Christmas music*, cold weather, and facial hair.  As I’m sure you’re aware, November is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month when men (and some unlucky women) grow facial hair as a show of support.  (Move over pink ribbons, the staches are here!)

Del Frisco’s Grille is doing PCAM one better with its Movember menu.  Stop in and order off of 9the special November-only menu this month and proceeds will benefit Movember.  Menu offerings include some DFG favorites, and a couple specialty drinks like the Lip Tickler (a deliciously-whiskey based cocktail that will put some hair on your … lip, pictured below) and the Stiff Upper Lip.

Stop in Mondays in November and show off your ‘stache and you’ll get a FREE APPETIZER!

Eating and drinking for a cause always works for me!

*If you think November is too early, keep it to yourself.  Christmas music makes me happy, and you bitching that it’s too early to listen to it will just peeve me.  🙂
