Bluth Banana Stand and the cast of Arrested Development
“There’s always money in the banana stand.” – George Bluth
The Bluth Frozen Banana stand*, long time fixture of the Bluth Company, will be at Yankee Stadium today from 3:30 – 8PM. Stop by before the game for a photo and a frozen banana. In conjunction with the banana stand, the Yankees are running a half price ticket offer for tonight’s matchup against the Mariners (May 15).
* The Bluth company has also owned and run a frozen banana stand started by George in 1953 on the Newport Beach boardwalk on Balboa Island. The stand was a popular meeting place for the buying and selling of marijuana in the 1970s. As the stand itself was built to resemble a large yellow banana, it was commonly known as “the big yellow joint”, and became the topic of a hit song by the same name. [arresteddevelopment.wikia.com]
The banana stand, is of course, an ingenious promotion for the highly anticipated premiere of Season 4 of Arrested Development on May 26 on Netflix.
