Eugene and Springfield, Oregon residents can receive $15 haircuts until the end of the world at Analog Barbershop in downtown Eugene. At least, that's what the sign says in front. The fine print at the bottom does say that Mayan calendar rules apply, so the offer might end when 2013 arrives.
The sign reflects the quirky humor that makes Eugene such an interesting place to live in. Don Rich, the barbershop's owner, has an interesting background himself, going from a homeless drunk to a respectable business owner with the help of St. Vincent de Paul.
Analog Babershop got its start in 2010 in Astoria, Oregon. Don Rich (aka Don Da Barber) is a former DJ and artist. It's not your typical barbershop. The decor reflects Don's devotion to art and music. Like the sign in front, Analog Barbershop is "Only in Eugene."
