FAMW: A “John Philip Sousa” Flash Mob?

On June 23, the new Giant Food store opened (finally!) along Columbia Pike in south Arlington. Now the folks here at Chez Alexandre can walk a mere 0.3 miles to the main drag to get whatever they need, just a few doors down from The Salsa Room. Speaking of which, shoppers were greeted that day by a mariachi band.

Meanwhile, at a location of the sister chain Stop and Shop in the northeast, shoppers stocking up for a holiday weekend got a surprise of their own. On July 1, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, they got a good dose of patriotism from a flash mob organized by the Spirit of America Band. Just the ticket for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

Better late than never.
