We've mentioned this barber shop several times before. It's down in the sunny state of Florida, Tampa to be exact, and we've been hearing little snippets here and there from people who drove by, or from others who have visited and posted articles on their blogs. We now have some links to a couple articles talking about this fine Lebowski-themed establishment.
Now before we get too far, I think it's fair to say while this barber shop is Lebowski-themed, these guys aren't fanboys. The place isn't decked out to look like The Dude's bungalow or Jackie Treehorn's palatial estate. It's just a barber shop ran by a couple of fans. It's definitely a place for men to congregate, get their hair cut, and enjoy being a man. I think barber shops are something that have definitely gone the way of the buffalo, at least in the classical sense. Maybe they still exist in bigger cities, but I personally have never been to something you see on television shows and movies. Barber shops are places where a guy can get away from it all for an hour or so and congregate with his fellow man. If those fellow men happen to share the love for a classic film like The Big Lebowski, then all the better.
Maybe it'd be easier to list some of the features you could expect if visiting:
This is basically a place "designed to appeal to young guys in their 20s and 30s looking for a place that women haven't invaded." I'm sure you can all empathize with the need to get away from the special lady friend for a while. Sometimes you just need sometime to be with the guys. If you're interested in stopping by...
Noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday
