There are two things I look for in a hair-cutter: I want a good haircut, and I want to have a pleasant-enough conversation. Both are necessary; I didn't go back to one guy, despite having received one of the best haircuts of my life, because he was such a butthead.
I got a haircut today, and the pleasant banter turned to the fact that Barberella and her husband went to the Irish fair at the Fairplex this weekend.
Appalling fact no. 1: $16 entry plus $9 parking makes for a hefty pricetag.
Appalling fact no. 2: NO IRISH BEER! They only served Budweiser products. Well, apparently they sold Michelob too -- for the appearance of teh fancy. But ferchrissakes, Anheuser-Busch owns Bass -- how hard would it be to sell a little Irish beer? And don't say it's the Fairplex contract, because you can get non-Budelob beers when the LA County Fair is on.
I am truly ashamed of Our Fair City.
