Seven Years of Tight Cuts

Happy Birthday to Joe’s Barberhop!

I’m proud of you mister for making more than a business; you’ve built a neighborhood institution.

And thanks to all of the customers who’ve come through the doors in the last seven years. Because of you, we might someday get to buy a little real estate in San Francisco.

Hey, a guy can dream.

  1. Steven Patterson:

    Can this be true? I have the same birthday as Joe’s Barbershop??

    I am not worthy.

  2. dogpoet:

    You schlepped to our wedding Steven, that makes you worthy in our book :)

  3. MR Bill:

    That’s a great picture of Joe and the shop, reminiscent of Hopper’s ‘Nighthawks’….

  4. dogpoet:

    Thanks, a couple of people have said the same. I wasn’t really thinking that when I snapped the pic, but I can see it now of course :)
