Bring on summer! Hollister, located on Houston and Broadway, is gearing up for its annual debut of lifeguard greeters. Although the classic combination of shirtless young men, red shorts, and zinc oxide has yet to make their appearance, it should be present within the next two weeks. The employees are just waiting on upper level management to give them the thumbs-up on their summer uniform. From past experience, we know that this addition will only make it harder for any passerby to just keep on walking by.—Annie Amrhein
