From the Editor...

Look at old photos of barber shops, Chris Espinoza says, and you'll notice that many barbers kept a small bar, not just to occupy those waiting for a trim, but because they also practiced "bloodletting and minor dentistry," thus offering bracers to help those who needed to dull their pain. Espinoza's new barber shop, his second, provides the same services as his first (trims, hot towel shaves, specialty cuts and shoeshines), as well as the hard stuff, with an emphasis on whiskey. But while the decor of his other shop resembles a "Wild West hunting lodge for alpha males," his new shop, with its 700 antique books, fireplace and jarred specimens, will appeal to those pledging the Royal Society. In the near future, he adds, expect the barber shop to become a full-on lounge between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. Chad Walsh, 11/6/2012
