It’s official!  The Great Shave 2012 will be in Chicago on October 24, 2012 at the Dank Haus German-American Cultural Center.  HERE is the official announcement page but I’ve taken the liberty to list the essentials below:

Shavapalooza: Chicago’s “The Great Shave”


“Surreal.”  The World English Dictionary at defines it as “having the quality of a dream; unreal; fantastic.”  That’s the only word I can come up with to describe my recent trips to Chicago and Milwaukee to give presentations on traditional wet shaving.  The two venues were unique in their own way, “apples and oranges,” but each were thrilling to me.  I’ll talk about Chicago in this post and then follow up with the Milwaukee visit.

Aside: Suggestions On How To Cope With Anticipatory Anxiety?


Last night I found out that the event I will be speaking at in Chicago next week has sold out, with 300 reservations made.  I was also told that I will be the “headliner,” speaking at 7:45pm.  It’s shaping up to be quite the event. My presentation in Milwaukee still has a few seats left, last I heard, so if you act quickly you may be able to get in on that.  That is going to be a terrific event as well: different than Chicago, more intimate and in-depth.  I have a couple media interviews scheduled too! I must say…

Join Me In Chicago!
