A beary silly competition

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Here's an opportunity you don't find every day: Gentlemen*, rev your chest hair! Monday the DVD release of 40-Year-Old Virgin is being celebrated with a chest waxing contest. It's at Burke Williams at Sunset and Crescent Heights on Monday the 12th -- bring your chest in all its glory at 6am to enter. Universal tells us they'll award "a major grand prize" to Los Angeles' hairiest chest. But if you've got the best waxing scream or personality, you won't walk away empty-handed. Plus, All chest waxing will be done with eco-friendly Aveda products, and Miki Mia, the movie's waxing lady, will be there to relive her star turn.

*There was some discussion at LAist corp HQ about whether women can participate. We say, down with gender discrimination! If you're a lady with a hairy chest, you should be able to play with the boys.
