I’ve been in town for nearly two months and I’m still looking for a permanent barber shop. I miss the one I frequented in Des Moines, the Roosevelt Barbershop, where politicos and other local movers and shakers went to get their locks trimmed. Tom Vilsack got sheared there the day before he announced his presidential candidacy. He eventually had to drop out, but his hair looked great.
The place had sports magazines, a deer head on the wall, a life-sized cardboard Dale Earnhardt and TVs generally tuned to news, weather, sports or the occasional nature show. It was a throwback joint with customer loyalty you can’t buy.
So anyway, I’m looking for a similar spot in the Cedar Rapids-Marion metroplex. Please give me suggestions.
