Off to the Olympics Trials

Good luck to the sixteen potential Olympians trained by Larchmont's very own Badgers Swim Club. It's a record number for a swim club that has seen its fair share of medals!

Peed Off

The other day in the city, I watched a woman allow her dog to pee on a fire hydrant.  I thought to myself, how inconsiderate.  Some fireman is going to have to touch that urine soaked hydrant in an emergency.  Apparently Larchmonters are no more considerate as one business owner resorted to adding a message on their planter. Curb your dog people.

Dirty Sidewalks

Many local business owners are complaining about all the dirt coming from the tree beds on the sidewalks.  In the city, they have nice metal grates to keep everything contained, but I imagine that they are expensive. Other than sweeping everyday, what other solutions are there?

RIP D.D.

A nice tribute in the New York Times for a well known DJ and Larchmonter.

It's Always Something

You know it's going to be a long night on Metro North when the water rations are handed out (and who knew they're hiding under the seats!). A shout out to my fellow passengers in the last car on the 9:42, who kept the mood light while we waited for over an hour for the darn drawbridge to be brought back down and secured. Yet another Metro North "War Story."

Time to Make the Donuts

Is this the new home for a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru? Stay tuned.

Save the Playhouse Round II

It's getting hard to keep up with developments surrounding the Larchmont Playhouse. Representatives from Pelham Picturehouse suspended their kickstarter campaign due to an accepted offer. It appears the "accepted offer" is not a done deal, and a new local group has emerged to save the Playhouse. The only problem is that they need to raise $1.5 million by next week. If you are interested in getting involved, send an email to SaveLarchmontMovies@gmail.com.

Say Ahhh!

Friends and I went in town for ice cream over the weekend, and when I asked for a spoon, I was told that plastic spoons are banned for independent businesses. Instead I was presented with this wooden tongue depressor thingy. Meanwhile, the frozen yogurt customers across the street were using red plastic spoons. What's up with dat? I went through VOL ordinances and can't find the regulation in question. Are there actually different rules for franchises vs. mom & pops, even though their businesses may be similar?

Low Key Larchmont

Larchmont featured in today's Wall Street Journal.

Off the Market

Westchester Magazine reports on the suspended kickstarter campaign for the Larchmont Playhouse. Does anyone know what the new developer has planned?
