"Moustache Madness" seized the Royale
last Saturday. Bartender David Mueth
, age 30, emerged victorious in the "Best Homegrown Moustache" category. Yesterday he slowed down with Daily RFT
to reflect on these last few heady days.
Q: Might one describe your moustache as a Fu-Manchu?

I like to think of it as an 1870s gold prospector's moustache. What kind of maintenance does your moustache require?
Routine trimming. No wax. I do
put conditioner in it. How does your moustache affect your self-esteem?
My high self-esteem is what allowed me to grow it in the first place. Has your moustache altered your love life?
I can always use the line, 'Does anybody want a moustache ride?' I don't. But... Specifically which magic powers has your moustache conferred upon you?
I can't divulge those.
