GIVING BACK AND GETAWAYS... don't often match up in this world. We so often seem to help out and lend a hand and raise awareness about the causes dear to us while we're at home, and once we venture out for the weekend, that part of our individual world is on hold. It doesn't always have to be that way, and very often a hotel will sponsor a charity or organization, encouraging guests to do the same, via food specials or limited-time packages. If you know Movember, the November-long fundraiser focused on men's health (and the growing of fabulous mustaches by the men raising money and the non-mustache'd Mo Sistas, too), then you'll have a hunch what the "Flash Yo 'Stache" deal is all about at a trio of Kimpton hotels. The properties are all located in Southern California, so if you show at the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, Hotel Solamar in San Diego, or The Palomar San Diego any time during November, and you do the requisite flashing of your mustache, you'll "a 20-percent discount on room rates and a special welcome amenity with Movember friendly amenities." Jim Hollister, director of operations for the Kimptons of the SoCal/AZ region, says "In Southern California, we are all about healthy living and love encouraging our guests to do the same. We're excited to play a small role in this effort, and look forward to rewarding guests for their support."
NOVEMBER 1... is the day to get growin' on the 'stach front, gentlemen, but the deal is on for all 30 days of the eleventh month at the three Kimptons mentioned. And if you don't have a mustache to flash for the deal, there are available mustaches "at check-in, to ensure anyone can partake in the promotion." Special drinks and hashtags for Instagram, hashtags that may net the guest a special surprise, are also part of the do-unto-others promotion.
SO... are you thinking of joining the Movember Foundation movement? Time to find a razor and clean that chin right up. Here are your details, mustache men and Mo Sistas. Thanks for giving back and, should you head to one of the participating Kimptons, enjoy your deal-nice, thank-you getaway.
