Sad City Gets A Haircut

This morning Sad City visited Hartford's best barber, MC's Barbershop, and we were pleasantly surprised to find our local business profile of MC's Barbershop prominently displayed in the window. Once again we were treated to an excellent haircut at an excellent price and MC even offered to spare us the straight blade.  Guys do yourself a favor, forget about Supercuts and take a trip to Franklin Ave and visit MC for a great cut.


  1. I gotta agree with the others in the previous comments...the hot cream/straight razor combo is essential. So is witch hazel and talcum powder.

    I'm a former Queen City customer. Fortunately, half of the dynamic duo is still alive and cutting hair (Professional Barbershop in East Hartford).

  2. I only go to MC. We talk about Islamophbia and WikiLeaks. He gives me a haircut and I tip him three bucks. Great dude.
