A new venue 'Saint Franks' opened last night at 1320 Broad Street in what used to be the rising star bakery location, I think. You can have a beer and a hot dog, play some pinball and even get a haircut if you feel so inclined. A collaboration of the owners of Victory Barber & Brand and Wheelies Motorcycles. I'm a big fan of these businesses and expect this to be another successful venture. Looks pretty cool.

The description reads like an onion article or a parody on urban hipsterism.  There's a market for that though!

For hair challenged gentlemen like myself, I finally have a reason to go to a barbershop :)

Dogs, broads, barbers, beats and beer in one joint? Brothers can't keep up with that.

On a slightly more serious note (or as serious as one can be with this absurd idea) how can food preparation be conducted in venue full of cut hair? Do you have to sign a waiver that says you cannot send food back if you find a hair in it?

Good question. It looks as though the barber chairs are in a separate glassed in room so maybe that segregates the usages from a health standpoint?

When they built Lacey-Lou's they went to great expense to create a tattoo parlor in the back, glassed in and separated from the food and libations.  It never really worked out, but the new owners obviously saw an opportunity.  Besides that, they're after the hotdog and beer crowd.. so.. me?  And I'm not concerned in the least.

Like a human hair is the worst thing to be found in a hot dog...
