Roundup: Levitt, Lemonade Stand …


Here’s a less-than-alluring Main Street view: the old Banana Republic. Hopefully a new store will soon replace this inelegant sight.

Binky Griptite filled the Levitt Pavilion last night. It was just like old times (except for the pods outlined on the grass).

The WFUV “Boogie Down” host — who has played with Janet Jackson and Amy Winehouse, and backed Sharon Jones with the Dap-Kings — brought his funk and soul to the lawn.

It’s the start of a near-normal summer. On the Levitt bill this week:

  • Tuesday, June 29: The Suzanne Sheridan Band
  • Wednesday, June 30: Joanne Leeds/Children’s Series launch
  • Friday, July 2: The Drew Angus Band.

It’s one thing to set up a lemonade stand.

It’s another to add fresh mint.

This young entrepreneur did a booming business yesterday, in the heat along Soundview Drive.

And finally … on this day in 1855, the Sigma Chi fraternity was founded.
