I've always been thrilled by folks who can do 'simple' very well.  I'd rather have the best apple pie on the planet than any pie with 24 exotic ingredients.  The same goes for spaces and experiences.  My friend David Martinez has a fantastic barber shop in town.  It's a cozy space to get a perfectly simple haircut and a chat.  Upon opening, David knew he wanted to have a place where customers and friends could drop in and hang out in conversation, and his response to this was to keep some beer in the back for everyone.  He teamed up with Madewest Brewery, another local business here in Ventura, to keep his operation in the family.
