BEST BEARDS IN DALLAS

Dallas-based photographer Brent Baxter of Brent Baxter Photography is proud to announce the second release of his book this February celebrating Dallas’ best beards and the men behind them. Featuring more than 20 intimate documentary-style photographs of men across the metroplex, Baxter offers perspective into each man’s everyday life in #BestBeardsInDallas. To celebrate the release of the coffee table book, Baxter is hosting a free music showcase and party at The Rustic on Saturday, Feb. 18 from 8 p.m. to midnight where attendees can purchase the book, enjoy live music by local acts Quaker City Nighthawks and Loyal Sally, and participate in a beard contest where Baxter will crown the #BestBeardInDallas to win a coveted trophy and deluxe man grooming kit. A portion of proceeds from book sales will benefit the Movember Foundation, an organization committed to helping men live happier, healthier, longer lives by funding more than 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. The Rustic is located at 3656 Howell St., Dallas, 75204.
