The Lemonade Stand is a dying business. I have a rule that if you ever see a Lemonade Stand, you STOP AND BUY A DAMN LEMONADE! “… but I don’t have cash on me ever!” << Then you go find and ATM and get some!
We realized that the most badass thing you could do right now in Vancouver is to have a lemonade stand. You can smoke weed down the street, drink beer in protest at English Bay, and shoot drugs in a sanctioned area… but have a lemonade stand?? The city would probably shut you down without a permit [which we’ve all heard lots of stories of].
On the hottest day of the summer, we got squeezing and doled out the good stuff while accepting donations for BC Wildfire Relief and broadcasting our afternoon show live. And you know what? The city didn’t come to shut us down until we were FINISHED. But they still came to “investigate and see about giving us a ticket if necessary” and were “so happy that we weren’t a kid.” Thanks City of Vancouver!
