    In Barrie, of course, on the south side of Dunlop Street West near Maple Avenue.
    This is the narrowest barber's shop I've seen in my life.
    Not that I go in that many nowadays, of course.
    (We were on our way back from canoeing and had stopped off to get some books and a few ice-creams)

    It looks positively barbaric - and the buildings are strangely reminiscent of Seville...

    When it gets really busy customers are entertained with barbershop duets.

    From the size of the premises, it would probably have to be barbershop solos.
    Kinda removes the magic from it?

    PITA bread is one of my favorites! Of course, here in The Lounge, we won't say what the 'other' meaning is...

    I don't want to mislead you - the proper pita place is The Pita Pit just a few doors south. They served me/us the biggest ice-cream I've had in years.
    My second order, a single cone after a double cone, was about 1/4 litre of ice-cream, and was served in a large polystyrene foam bucket, with a teaspoon even 'though the order was for "a single cone". I spent the first five minutes gnawing large gobs of ice-cream off the mountain before I could feel confident about using the spoon.

    I gotta go back soon; they'll be out of business they go on this way .....
