The Barber Shop(s)
When we first moved to DC from Milwaukee, we knew it was going to be hard to replace Joe the Barber. My husband had been visiting his establishment for many years. He first tried a place down by Union Station. He would come home with one side if his sideburns higher than the other. So he switched to a place on 8th Street. He came home with cuts and an earful of foul language - although the haircut was actually pretty good! Wanting to stay in the neighborhood he tried a little more upscale place on Pennsylvania Avenue. They were too upscale and went out if business. The person who cut his hair relocated too far from home. So he now goes to Old Town Barber in Alexandria. We happened to notice it on one of our many trips there and decided it might be worth a try. The haircut was okay, but the price couldn't be beat. How long do you think this one will last?
