“We’re literally up in one of those rinky-dink souvenir malls, across from us they sell pipes and bongs and cellphone cases and fake purses,” Mr. Preston said. “We’re smack dab in the middle of that and we couldn’t be happier.” Naturally, there would be an opening party, but only five or six people can fit in the shop at once. “We’ll have it at Le Baron,” Mr. Preston suggested, referring to the nearby nightclub.
