While walking home from Van Ness, where I spent a lovely day poolside, my friend & I passed a young, Aryan-looking entrepreneur manning a lemonade stand. Talk about merch! This kid had two varieties of lemon bev (Country Time and Crystal Light) & offered two sizes (50 cents for a small glass, 75 cents for a large). Even though the large Country Time I bought was far too sweet & a bit difficult to drink whilst walking, I can't tell you how thrilled I was to have run into a small, familiar piece of suburbia right there on Connecticut Avenue.
