I’m pretty sure most of you don’t visit this site for fashion or style advice. Or, for your sake at least, I hope you don’t visit for style and fashion advice. Each year when my homosexual license is up for renewal I fail the “current designers” and “fashionable trends” parts of the test, but I have such an extensive collection of Madonna albums and dance mixes that my fashion stupidity doesn’t doom me from tribal exile.
Why should you care? Even though I’m fashion and style challenged, I manage to look decent thanks to a consistently great haircut. Which is why I’m so happy to announce that Joe’s Barbershop in the Castro is re-opening this weekend. They were closed because of a pretty serious fire, but all has been repaired and Joe and his amazing crew of barbers will be back in the shop starting today (but officially tomorrow). So for those of you who are dying to know (but afraid to ask) about where I get my awesome haircut, now you know.
In addition to being a client of Joe’s, Joe and his partner – the amazingly talented writer DogPoet – are clients of mine.
And if you think buying a house and getting financing in the current market is a challenge, just contemplate purchasing a home when your business is on fire. But we got it done, because that’s how we roll around here. And on what may, or may not be, a related note – Prominent Escrow is the most incompetent and unprofessional escrow company I’ve ever dealt with and I’d urge you to avoid them if at all possible. But I’m not quite ready to put that story into print, so I’ll just leave it at that for now.
Anyway, back to the important point: Joe’s Barbershop is back, and starting today (but officially Saturday) you can get an awesome haircut at a neighborhood institution. So stop by, get a great haircut, and give Joe and all the barbers a high-five. They’ve earned it!
Joe’s barbershop is located at 2150 Market St. between Church and Castro, on the north side of the street. Now you really don’t have an excuse not to go!
