The Facial Hair Affair at Blue 13

Week one of Blue 13 chef Chris Curren's ever-growing beard (Photo: Chris Curren)

What started as a dare has transformed into a full-on hairy situation as Blue 13 executive chef/partner Chris Curren's letting his beard grow and grow and grow.

But the hard-rockin', tatted-up chef's doing it for a good cause, as a tribute to his late Uncle Rick, who lost his battle to pancreatic cancer earlier this year. The restaurant has partnered with the American Cancer Society to raise money for research during the next three months.

Curren is growing his beard as part of The Facial Hair Affair, and he'll post photos of his progress here.

You can also stop by the resto and check him out in person. Tuesday through Tuesday, they're giving away a Tweet Treat to followers (which could be a free cocktail or half-off on apps like the infamous mac n cheese); also half-priced bottles of wine on Tuesdays; and Sundays are reserved for the $20 family-style dinner.

Cannot wait to see what he looks like next week!
