The Eagle River Fire Protection District is partnering with the Vail Valley Medical Center and Vail Brewing Co. for Eat, Drink and Be Manly, taking place at the brewery at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18.

The event strives to raise awareness about the fight against prostate cancer, and all proceeds will benefit the Shaw Regional Cancer Center. For attendees 21 and older, $10 gets you a beer and two raffle tickets for swag donated by local businesses, including a snowboard from Never Summer, gear from Kind Design, a Helly Hansen roller duffle bag, Bula winter hats, a Patagonia fleece and various bottles of liquor, plus you can do a bit of manscaping for the mustache contest to win additional prizes.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., the ’stache contest happens at 6:30 and the raffle at 7:30 p.m., and there’s live music from Jake Wolf and Friends starting at 8 p.m. Rocky Mountain Taco also will have a food truck on hand with taco specials.
