Signs of Davis Square: Apostrophe police

One lucky boy in West Somerville has the privilege of getting his hair cut in an otherwise over-18 establishment. Either that or it's the local custom for men to patronize Alibrandis in groups and get identical comb-overs simultaneously, something that minors are not allowed to participate in. I wouldn't know, since I shlep to the South End for my haircuts and pretend, for one half-hour a month, that I still live on Columbus Ave. and that straight couples are still afraid to raise children there. This really is one of the last signs of Old Somerville -- or, at least, one of the last signs above a business that actually seems to have a steady clientele. How long before it gets a wussy makeover like the Sligo Pub?
