People have been gathering at a bar in the nation's capital to take advantage of a Tuesday night promotion: Get a haircut, along with a shot of whiskey, for $12.

Since last year, patrons were able to come to the bar for a "buzz cut." Then the promotion ended — not because the haircuts were bad, but because city officials cracked down. They say the bar didn't have a permit.

The bar's beauticians were licensed, but apparently — in D.C. — bars, or any establishment, need permits to serve up haircuts on their premises.
