Jack is one busy, bearded guy. We met up in NYC this summer where he was hard at work promoting the competitive beard-growing reality show, Whisker Wars.

See them both below.
If you’re lucky enough to be in San Francisco this eve, you can snag these new dominos and see Jeremy Fish himself at the opening party in North Beach. I’ll be there in spirit with my Fish Stein, saying cheers from Petaluma.

If there’s a specially-commissioned art show to celebrate 50 years of the iconic Playboy Bunny, you know godfather of the Silly Pink Bunnies, Jeremy Fish, is gonna be on the list.
This June marks the 50th anniversary of the Bunny’s first appearance in the original Chicago Playboy Club. The art exhibition is only one in a series of parties they’re throwing to celebrate. Wonder if Fish’s mobile art show will make a stop at the opening? (Pic via TOTT)
