Today: Virginia Senior of Urban Beans
Though her math skills may not be the strongest (as evidenced by the chart below), Virginia Senior has got plenty of other talents going for her. In addition to being a restaurant owner, Senior's an architect and fine artist — one who believes in the power of design and often shares her talents through food. Her coffee shop and wine bar, Urban Beans, has been a Central Phoenix neighborhood destination for years and recently extended its hours to be open 24/7 in order to be a true community space. For coffee and pastries by day and wine and games of chess at night, the spot is as accommodating and comfortable as its owner.
