There Is a Market for Everything
For most men, beer and sports go well with just about anything. That is the basic business plan of Knockouts barbershop in St. Joseph. Guys can go in, have a beer, get a haircut from an attractive young lady, and watch TV. Of course, the state can’t possibly allow something like this to go on without intervention of some type. So, now there is an investigation into whether or not Knockouts needs a liquor license — because, you know, God forbid the government not get its cut.
Mr. Schler, the acting state liquor and tobacco supervisor, said any salon requiring a purchase in order to obtain a complimentary drink is indirectly selling alcohol.
“You’re getting a haircut and alcohol all in one monetary consideration. It’s all a package,” he said. “You cannot get the drink without the money. So, it’s not actually free.”
I am pretty sure that at some point in the future, the government will try to license Super Bowl parties at your house. Because, you know, somebody has to pay for the television in the first place — so it’s not actually free. Speaking of guys who love beer and sports, thanks Combest for the link.
