Join us for one heck of a Traditional Shaving Bash, The Big Shave Southwest! That's right folks, we decided to yet again do The Big Shave S'west here in Arizona! Year 6 baby!

The feedback from last years (4/19) event was super positive, people absolutely loved the location and week long if it ain't broke? That said, we are looking forward to an even bigger throng of attendees!

Seriously, Hiking, Casinos, Theme Parks, Water Parks, History, Ghost Towns, Restaurants, Tubing, TOMBSTONE, and oh so much more. Seriously, Go S'west Young Man!

Location, Location, Location...

I am so excited to announce that we will be holding this years event once more at the glorious, historical Crowne Plaza Golf Resort, located in historic downtown Chandler, Arizona this March 28th! A cool 20 minutes away from Sky Harbor International Airport and also in the heart of charming, historic Chandler. 

Location: Crowne Plaza Resort 1 N San Marcos Pl, Chandler, AZ 85225

For real, this place has everything you could possibly need, pubs, pizza, breakfast, salons,'s epic and super family friendly! One could easily spend a few hours at the event step out the door and jump in the pool! The guys and I hand endless, memorable times at last years event walking, sometimes crawling, all around this action packed resort. Can you say speakeasy? Yeah, there's one of those too!

Golf Anyone? 

The Crowne Plaza Resort is known for its most excellent course. If golf is your game, you may never want to leave! So be sure to bring those clubs!!!

Day Trips

After the first couple of Big Shave events we noticed a trend, folks showed up days in advance. This was cool and we had a lot of great impromptu hang outs...but we thought we could do that better. So we did. Last year we decided to offer some fun day trips and events the week before the event! We offered a Baseball Game Trip, Cigar Night, Tombstone and a bunch of others. The resort and neighboring businesses were also kind enough to throw some discounts our way too! 

So you can bet we are all itching to do it  again! I have yet to work out the details for day trips so many months out at the moment, but know as I do, I will post here. I will also notify folks via the official newsletter so be sure to get on the list!

We have a lot of options this coming year; Pima Air & Space Museum, Old Tucson Studio (where John Wayne filmed many a movie), Octane Raceway, Top Golf, Xscape House in Tucson, Panning for Gold with Stefan of The Holy Black, Splitting Timber Axe Range, and more TBA. Of course we will be heading back to Tombstone for another EPIC time! I know I tend to use the word epic a lot but this really was, I mean one fella left there with a new shave related tattoo...and the beer did flow.

Tombstone, Arizona Day Trip | More Info TBA

Join Douglas Smythe for an exciting Wild West adventure! That's right folks, we're packing up and heading South for a day trip to Tombstone, Arizona. We all had a great time on this day trip last year! Stay tuned for when seat tickets go on sale for this one!

This will be an all day trip to the historic town and site of the shoot out at the OK Corral as well as well as a pit stop by historic Boot Hill Cemetery! We will check out the reenactments, museum, saloons, Birdhouse Theater and more!
