OK. here's a simple puzzle for you:
The owner of a downtown Fredericton fixture says for years men used to pop into barber shops to get a haircut or shave and a drink. Troy Ashfield decided to make that tradition legal and became the first licensed barber shop in the world. “The guys were coming in and seeing an old friend, asking what they wanted to do after the haircut. I’d hear ‘Do you want to go for a beer?’ so I decided if I sell beer here, they can stick around and chat,” Ashfield said.
See? You do see, right? I just can't believe in Greece or Peru there isn't a licensed barber shop. Any ideas? Any examples? Hmm?
Don't get me wrong. I think it makes a lot of sense. I'd quite happily head to someplace with good beer for a hair cut. Or doing laundry if there was no machine in my basement. There used to be one of those on Fenwick Street in Halifax NS but its now some sort of food court thing. Too bad. There is a motel on Cobleskill NY between Albany and Binghampton with a bowling alley attached with a bar in it which means you can go get a beer in your slippers and take out some pins while you are at it. That is a good thing.
What would I like... what? If I had my druthers, I would love to find a beer bar with those table top video games from around 1983. Oatmeal stout pairs well with Missile Command. Nothing matches a good beer like defending the planet against a Soviet nuclear attack. Or seventeen. Except maybe throwing axes. Especially axes.
