It only took 20 years!
Way back in the day, Mark Burr, one of the founders of Jellyfish Brewing had a dream. The dream manifested itself modestly. Word got out that, although untrained, Mark would cut hair for friends or acquaintances. It was a pretty good deal for the customer. The customer, let’s call him ‘Tommy Stevens’ (who might also be a founder of Jellyfish), would stop by Mark’s house. Mark would place a stool in the middle of the living room facing the television. ‘Tommy’ would sit on the stool and select the game he wanted to watch on TV, while Mark would make Manhattans. Upon returning with the Manhattans, Mark would adorn Tommy with a cape, and get to cutting. Word spread about this service, and pretty soon a small clientele was established.
Eventually, Mark Burr would brag about his million dollar idea. He was going to open The BarBurr Shop. Customers would come in, get their drink on, get their ‘dos done, all the while watching their favorite team on TV. But from now on the service wouldn’t be free. (It’s important to note…there were no mirrors involved in this enterprise).
It would’ve been a hit, except for the fact that all of the early patrons eventually realized they were getting exactly the same haircut. It was always shorter than they wanted when they arrived, and it was always styled exactly like Mark’s. Eventually, the shears were put away, and the dream was put to rest.
Until now! We just delivered to our first BarBurr Shop. Okay, it’s not The BarBurr Shop, it’s actually called Steele Barber, where they have very talented, trained stylists! There are countless reasons why Steele Barber is superior to the salon in Mark’s living room, but one commonality does exist. Patrons have the option of a fine beer or spirit with their service. Awesome!
