With all the closed retail stores in So. Calif., it's not long before you see a thrift store open up in the empty building. Huge market out here in used clothes, etc. They should start closing the underperforming stores asap.
Get a liquor by the drink license, a sound system from for about $15,000 and a couple of decent DJs. Either open up a dance joint or a titty bar. They are awfully similar and SEX does sell.
