TIE: Gaitan's Barber Shop; Wooten Barber Shop

When we feel like a neighborly chat, the latest in center-city gossip, and a gentle touch, we go see Mimi at Gaitan's Barber Shop in Hyde Park. When we're more in the mood for an action movie on TV, hot towels, and a strop with a straight razor, we head our heads over to the manly Wooten Barber Shop on the Drag.
