In the early 1920s it was a barbershop, serving root beer and sandwiches to waiting customers. When Prohibition ended, the health department said either serve food and beer or cut hair. The beer still comes in frosted 20-ounce schooners, the eggs are pickled on the premises, there's pool and snooker in the back room, and freshly roasted peanuts and cigars are sold behind the bar.
