There is absolutely nothing better than a professional hot shave and haircut performed by an experienced barber.

I remember when a men's barbershop opened on Route 7 in Ridgefield called American Male. Unfortunately it closed down many years ago and now a Subway Shop stands in its place. You're not able to order a hot shave from the ladies behind the counter, but they do make an amazing 6 inch tuna sub on honey oat bread with lettuce, tomato, provolone cheese, spinach, lots of onions, and sweet onion sauce sprinkled with salt and pepper. But I digress.
