Everybody loves pumpkins. That is, until they…TURN. Featuring the crews of Beardsgaard, Freshground Coffee Roasters, Penrose Brewing Company, The Fox Valley Voice, and a bunch of other dweebs we rounded up for the occasion. Beardsgaard Barbers is proud to present, a D-movie horror movie disasterpiece: “They Came From The Parking Lot Part III: Evil is Brewing.”
We feel we should explain how all this came about.
It all started in 2014 with some pumpkins given to us by Batavia Main Street, carved epically by our OG shop neighbors at Fallen Star Tattoo. After Halloween weekend in the front windows, we returned to find pumpkins that looked like Walking Dead extras.
Someone made a joke about how we should “smash some pumpkins.” It all kind of spiraled from there, now for three years in a row. We even made T-shirts.
This year the crew was the biggest we have ever had.
We had Rob, who got us into Penrose Brewing Company for some epic location shots (including some footage we snagged while scaring the bejeebus out of people while working the Haunted Brewery Tour).
Eric of Freshground Coffee Roasters let us abuse the counter (and shop artist Brian) in his shop.
Old friends just keep on coming back to play.
And for the noobs (like Alex, who we officially hired that day), we truly let them know what they’re getting into working here.
Oh yes, and we also set some shit on fire. Gotta protect the stache while doing so, though.
And now, let us present, the horror.
