I'll be back in Boston by the 2nd of September and dude, Davis Square just hopped right to the top of my flist of places to go (apart from Harvard Square so that I can pick up my comics fix, of course). Why?
Well, because of this wank, wherein an idiot suggests opening a hair salon for men along the lines of hooters in a Davis Square comm and the members don't react happily. In the b0ston comm, where the guy posts again about the idea, people also think it's stupid and someone even sarcastically suggests Davis Square. XD
It even hits the b0ston snark comm, and the post on the Red Sox comm has killer tags.
*grinning like a wild thing* Best comment to the entire mess was this one, reproduced in full below:
It's a sorry state of affairs in this country when the lure of titties is necessary to get men to groom properly.
That said, I think Davis would likely be a nightmare choice of location for a business like this. It's the wrong crowd. Since you don't know the area, its only fair to tell you that heterosexuality is far from universal in this neighborhood. We have a very strong representation of gay, lesbian, bi, transgendered, polyamorous, pagan, geek and everything else that doesn't fall smack into the mainstream. Which is not to say there aren't heterosexual men here who like boobies. There are. But there are a lot of women who like 'em, too.
Honestly, I would skip all of Somerville, all of Cambridge, and probably most of Boston except Kenmore and the Fenway area. Someone said Nashua, and that's probably a good bet. You also might do well out in the Route 1 area, where there are a lot of sports bars and strip malls where what you're doing could work out well.
I spend enough time feeling rather dismayed to be American that it's fantastic when something happens that makes me gleeful to be a Bostonian. XDDDD
