Barbershop Beer
(2008-03-13)
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Barbershop owner Thomas Martin is
taking his case to Lansing to restore his cut-and-a-beer service.
Martin has 11 shops in the Grand Rapids area and had offered
customers one complimentary brew until authorities in two counties
told him to stop.
The Grand Rapids Press reports that State Rep. Kevin Green says
he doesn't see why Martin's clients can't have a beer since no one
is looking to get drunk.
The Wyoming Republican has asked the Michigan attorney general's
office to research whether giving customers a beer violates state
law.
A spokesman for Attorney General Mike Cox says the beer benefit
is under review but there is no time frame for a decision.
State law prohibits businesses where people consume alcohol when
paying for other services.
