In Praise Of Lemonade Stands

At The Slice blog, Paul Turner points out one of the benefits that city dwellers enjoy that county dwellers don't:

We all know the list of pros and cons for each choice. To each, his own. But let me add one more in favor of living in the city — lemonade stands. I have a little experience with urging people to seek therapy, but I am not actually a counselor myself. However, if I were a therapist, I would urge my clients to patronize kids' lemonade stands at every opportunity. It never fails to lift my spirits, and I'll bet many others feel the same way. OK, it's not a long-term solution to chronic problems. But what would you expect for 50 cents?

Question: When did you last buy a drink at a lemonade stand?
