GRAND FORKS - Employees at the locally-owned restaurant, Rhombus Guys, decided to put their razors away for a month and grow a 'stache in honor of "Movember."

Restaurant owner and manager Matt Winjum says, "We thought we could do something really positive and it's going to be a lot of fun and we're really excited about it. We think that it has a lot of legs to do something really big, the potential is big."

But exactly why they're doing this tells a whole different story.

"We've been hearing a lot in the news about Occupy Wall Street and it seems to be all this negative stuff, not a whole lot of productive things going on ...'Occupy Rhombus' kind of a playoff of Occupy Wall Street, instead of the 99 percent we're saying be the one percent," says Winjum.

Rhombus Guys is trying to convince the 1 percent of Grand Forks to come in, mustache's on, and shed positive light on the occupy movement and donate to something larger with Occupy 'Movember,' a national effort for men's health.

Connor Paulson, the kitchen manager says, "it's kind of a fun way to look a little foolish have fun but also raise money for prostate cancer."

"I'm participating in Movember," said Winjum.

"You know I was on the fence but once I learned that rhombus is going to donate I think I'm going to have to do it I'm gonna have to grow the mustache," says Paulson.

And if the restaurant's plan is successful, managers want to donate to other charities throughout the year.

"We might be donating back the proceeds of our earnings forever," said Winjum.

Rhombus Guys says it's a win-win situation; raising money for prostate cancer while having fun.
