finally, ava's dream came true - we let her have a lemonade stand. in true john-quinn style this was no half-ass lemonade stand either. the stand served fresh-squeezed lemonade and real ginger-beer.
violating who knows how many by-laws, we plonked the stand down in front of the playground, and beside the farmers market. business was brisk, as ava and gwen proved to be
enthusiastic aggressive saleswomen - chasing down potential customers from a good half block away and then skipping along beside them until they gave in.
the economics of a lemonade stand in park slope were a little messed up. people kept grossly overpaying for their drinks, leaving ava and gwen with a haul of over $50!
