One of my favorite places to hang out is the barbershop. Oh, and the more old-school, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

There's nothing better than sitting around while getting a haircut and/or a shave and talking about politics, sports, war stories, and the occasional dirty joke. Some of my best memories as a kid revolve around the local barbershop in my hometown. Plus, you walk out of there looking and smelling like a million bucks with all of the talc powder and bay rum aftershave.

For many small towns, the barbershop is the go-to place to know what's happening around town, and certainly somewhere you can get the latest and greatest in local gossip. Plus, once you find a great barber, you certainly want to keep coming back to them.

I know that most of us feel like we're always in a rush, however, going to the barbershop, waiting to get your hair cut, and partaking in the conversations is one of life's pleasures. Oh, and if you've never had a hot shave before, I would highly recommend one.  They are a luxury that every man should experience.
