Every third Tuesday of the month the Hampton Roads Beard and Stache Society meets at a predetermined location--which has been 80/20 Burger Bar in Norfolk lately. 80/20 is where The Boot used to be on 21st St. I spent a lot of time there mainly to see shows, my favorite band passed through there back in 2008 right before they broke up...good times, good times.
HRBSS is a local group of facial hair enthusiasts that volunteer for events and will be staging their first official competition. These meetings let people interested in the group to meet each other and discuss what's happening around town. It's also a good excuse to have a beer and grab something to eat. I had a couple of drinks, my first was a Rule G from Smartmouth. The award winning IPA is always a sure thing when you're having a problem figuring out what you want to order. From the burger menu I picked the Killa B which is 80/20's version of a "black and blue". The burger is dressed with bacon, fire aioli, bleu cheese and a seasoned patty. I love bleu cheese and Jamie (80/20 owner) stated that he buys the cheese in wheels and they break it up on site. It came with house fries--garlic, parm and parsley. My friend Jeff ordered the Heritage burger which is made from bison. Both burgers were cooked perfectly and I was extremely satisfied with mine.
After eating and chatting we all went outside for a group shot. Lots of beard going on in this photo. Check out the groups page, linked above, and definitely hit 80/20. Good menu and beer selection, you'll definitely find something you like.
