The Coney Island Avenue Walgreens (at Avenue W) may have opened for business almost a month ago, but they held off on their grand opening until today. After visiting we could see why there was a delay. The event was overloaded (in a good way) with vendors, clowns, soap opera stars, a cappella songsters, snacks, politicians, and the tremendously talented Brooklyn Steppers (oh my!). Get there before the rain, and you may still be able to receive one of the free goodie bags they’ve been giving out. But don’t put anything down for a second – Ray is still fuming over some scoundrel’s successful theft of her potato chips. That thief was a pUTZ!*
