Why Didn't I Think of This First?

This pretty much crushes my idea of a record store / bar. A new store in Phoenix, AZ is opening up called Sweets & Beats. As the name hints, it will sell both candy and records. Dang that idea rules. All I know is I am glad I don't work there because I can barely contain myself around a room full of records so you add a whole lot of sugar into the mix and you would probably find me in a candy coma on the floor with gummy bears stuck to my hair while hugging a variety of LPs and 7"ers...but I am sure I would be smiling.

Imagine if this clip included bins of records too. Heaven on earth.


  1. We need to stay out of there.

  2. I have always thought that in order for the indie stores to stay alive they needed to be forward thinking in different avenues of making money.

    I personally vote for record store/laundromat. Shop while you wait for that spin cycle to finish. The store would also sell refreshments and snacks. Yum.

    Now all I need is the 200k to start the venture. Who is with me?
