NE Alberta's self-described alpha-male barbershop, The Modern Man, is expanding their territory—how masculine of them. The new location is at 4538 SE Hawthorne and is aimed at "more gentlemanly and scholarly types." But even if they've switched up their north side taxidermy for Southeast's specimen jars and bookcases, one important constant remains: whiskey. Friday night is the grand opening party (7-11 pm), at which they'll be pouring out complimentary Burnside Bourbon from Eastside Distilling, suds from Gilgamesh and door prizes like (ha) two tickets to see Portland Center Stage's Sweeney Todd. (Another pair will be given away to a winning customer who makes an appointment on Saturday, the first official day of business.)
