Who wants a mustache ride? Photos by Sarah Bibi

Did you miss our rootin’ tootin’ Brokedown Throwdown at Public Assembly on Oct. 23? Well then you missed the great comedy antics of Kevin Barnett, the old tyme music of The Jug Addicts and much more, including, of course, the one-and-only Mustache Ride (ta-da! there it is in action)! Luckily our uber-talented photographer Sarah Bibi was on hand again to capture it all in little virtual postcards to send back to you. We’ve picked out some our favorites below, but make sure to check out the full set in the Brokelyn Flickr pool and check back soon to see for more shots of brokesters riding the wild mustache!

No turkeys were harmed in the making of these hats.
