The idea started as a joke. Prior to his wife, Allison, boarding a plane for L.A., Jeremy Scott joked he was tired of his day job and was going to open a record store when she returned. "Oh, and you can cut hair in the back," he remembered telling her during an interview at King Avenue 5 this week. Her friends in L.A. loved the idea, and soon after her return to Columbus, the couple set about opening Columbus' first salon and record store. Located in a 1,700-square-foot space in Grandview, Broken Records and Beehives has been open since last September with a well-curated record collection, a man cave - complete with pool table, armchairs and soccer jerseys - and the salon. Another stylist has joined the fold, and there's space for one more, plus a barber and nail tech. They've held concerts and plan for more community outreach in the future.

Jason Molina

Mind you, Iím wearing a Guided By Voices T-shirt, and no offense to Bob Pollard, because I love Bob Pollard, too, but you look at Ohio, and itís [Jason Molina], heís the pinnacle. But he gets undersold a lot. He was prolific as hell. Heís from Lorain, Ohio, has so many incredible records and lyrically, itís just some of the most poignant stuff Iíve ever heard.

Post-World Cup soccer in the U.S.

Iím a huge ďMen of BlazersĒ [podcast] fan. Their tag line is the best: ďAmericaís sport of the future since 1970.Ē Thatís kind of the way it always feels, but Iím excited for post-World Cup soccer in America, to see how it picks up. Thereís definitely been an attitude shift toward soccer. I love that non-soccer fans are latching onto it. But Iíve seen it before with World Cups, and it doesnít last. Iíve seen a lot more people ó compared to four years ago ó really getting behind this team, and Iíd love to see it blossom a little more.

Tree Bar

Itís a great dive bar, owned by two people I absolutely adore, and they have top-shelf whiskey. But itís still overlooked for a place that had such a powerful mythos and legend because itís no longer Andymanís Treehouse. Yeah, thereís a stump there now, but itís still a great place. Itís still probably what you remember, but itís different, and that doesnít mean itís worse.

Tybee Island, Georgia

Itís about 15-20 minutes east of Savannah. We got married on the beach there. Thereís one corporate thing on it, and itís an Arbyís. Itís all mom-and-pop restaurants and bars. Weíll probably move there someday. Itís beautiful ó the weather, the architecture, the places to go, the food, the hospitality, the ability to walk around with an open container, the history. Itís a little gem. I should be on the Tybee Island tourist association because Iím always pushing it on people and Iíve gotten a couple people to go down there. Itís not like a party place or anything. Itís not Daytona of the north; itís definitely a little more low-key.

Alcoholic ginger beer with Jameson or Gin

Instead of having your song of the summer, we have the drink of the summer. Lately, weíve become obsessed with ginger beer ó the alcoholic kind ó paired with Jameson or gin. We discovered it the day after Record Store Day. We got our butts kicked [during Record Store Day], but in a good way, and I was like, ďCome on, we had a long day, letís go out to Easton.Ē We were thinking the stores would be open on Easter Sunday, and they werenít, so we went to Fadoís, and the bartender asked what we wanted, and we didnít know, so he pointed to that and Ö we were like, ďohmygodthisisthegreatestthingever.Ē Itís been our calling card since. Some places have ginger beer, but the non-alcoholic kind, which tastes just fine, but the thing with the Crabbieís is itís alcoholic, so youíre adding gin or Jameson on top and it has double the punch. A lot of times we just have it at home. Itís not exactly a cheap drink if youíre going to a bar.
