Am I supposed to relate to this place?

The Factory Retooled
Wow, it's so ironic that they offer an $18 cosmo called the 27th Street. I think the real statement is that they sell Colt 45 for $6. And you get to look at photos of Paris Hilton while you're there.

If you don't feel like reading the whole article, here is my favorite quote: "I’m an enthusiast and I express myself sensually and I can barely hold myself in,” he said. “I can tell that there’s an element of the pulse, of neurotic, erotic perfection.”
