Fascinating account of an unsolved 1961 Lexington, KY murderRead More
As Christmas draws near, HerKentucky is committed to helping you find the best, most unique presents for everyone on your list. Today, we want to share with you a great gift for the guy in your life, especially if he's a lumbersexual, a hipster, or a competitive whisker-grower.
Of course, I'm kidding just a little, but the mustache cup is an often forgotten piece of history. Unless you attended Transylvania University, that is. My alma mater just happens to boast a collection of over 300 Victorian Era mugs and teacups that feature little guards to keep the drinker's mustache safe. And, Transy's art department may have just created the world's largest mustache cup.
Professors Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova have built what could be the world’s largest mustache cup. (They're working on getting it recognized by Guinness World Records.) See it at Christ Church Cathedral during Friday's Gallery Hop along with other works by #Transy professors, students and alumni.
Why not give the sophisticated gentleman in your life a mustache mug of his own?
Bucardo recently sent me (well, really, my beau) a mustache mug to review. Bucardo has and partnered with the global men's health movement of Movember to help draw attention to men's health issues. Bucardo will donate $5 from every mug sold now until Dec 31st. What a great way to let the guy in your life know that you're thinking of his immediate comfort as well as his long-term health!
My friend and Transylvania classmate, Northern Kentucky native Mandy McMillian, is an actress. Quite a good actress, really. When we were freshmen at Transy, she knew what she wanted just as much as the future doctors and lawyers and teachers of the world. And, she's accomplished it. She thought outside the box and she's a singer and actress living in L.A. How awesome is that?
Since we're all snowed in, bored sick, and looking for something fun to do, here's a fun way to binge-watch with a mission. My fellow Transy alumni and I always have fun spotting Mandy on our favorite TV shows; it makes a really fantastic snow day "Spot the Kentucky Girl" game!
