You don’t need a PhD in sociology – or even a BA in journalism – to know that the best and most scientific demographic sampling takes place in barbershops.
So to get a sense of how folks around the greater Red Bank Green will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week, PieHole, redbankgreen‘s food page, checked in with a few area barbers and hair stylists – and the people in their chairs – to find out what’s for dinner on T-Day.
This is the first entry in a series of quick bites we’re calling ‘Morsels.’ Watch for more in coming days at PieHole.
Gus’s Barbershop, Shrewsbury Avenue, Red Bank.
Carl Bowles, in the chair: We have a family get-together in Tinton Falls. My four brothers and four sisters and my dad, my dad’s 83 and still with us. Maybe another dozen or so grandkids around.
