    Barbershop buzz: How Trump is playing in Germantown
    The rapper Drake played on the overhead speakers in the Weave Bar on the 5600 block of Germantown Avenue. Black leather swivel chairs lined two of the walls in the salon, and sunshine poured in through the large storefront windows. The sound of lunchtime traffic on the cobblestone street melded with the conversations between the stylists and their customers.
