    After auctions on Saturday afternoons me and the crew usually finish our day with a meal and a few drinks at P.J. Harrigans in State College, PA. The owner of this restaurant and bar must also be a collector because the place is loaded with amazing collectibles, everything from a pair of Shaq's size 22 sneakers to original Tiffany lamps over every booth.

      This is a great gag! Capone actually lived in Chicago's Lexington Hotel, it was a landmark hotel that was boarded up and abandoned for decades. and was eventually demolished about 10 years ago. I used to drive by it all the time when I visited Chicago, it was not in a good neighborhood.

      Thanks Zguy, next time i'm there I will question them on the authenticity of the chair story. I will take photos of all the other stuff they have also. BTW, my name is on a plaque in there for finishing their POUNDER burger, like Man vs. Food, lol

      Love it! That's sounds like the place for you to hang. Wish the restaurants in L.A. I dine at nightly would plaque my name. Still is a great looking barber chair no matter it's authenticity. And maybe Capone got his hair cut at the Roosevelt, I don't know. But i DO know he lived in the Lexington, my grandfather worked at that hotel during Capone's residency there. Stay in touch buddy.
