No lemonade for you!
After receiving calls from neighbors, police in the mean streets of East Hampton, New York shut down a lemonade stand set up by Jerry Seinfeld and his family to fundraise for a charity, according to a report by the New York Post. Looks like Seinfeld just can't catch a break when it comes to his neighbors. "Newman!"
Jessica Seinfeld posted a photo on Instagram showing her husband, their son Julian, and friends playfully responding to the shut down, while a police officer can be seen in the background. "Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor...," she said in the post:
Would You Eat a Blueberry Pizza?
Specifically, area police told the Seinfelds that lemonade stands -- or peddling -- is not allowed in the village, and that a neighbor had complained about illegally parked cars nearby and yada-yada.
The stand was meant to raise money for Jessica Seinfeld's charity, Baby Buggy, which provides clothing and other critical items to families in need. However, Seinfeld thanked her lemonade sales team for raising "lots of money" for the non-profit before the situation devolved into what should have been a sitcom skit.
