There is, there are…

Speak Up 364, in the article “LIFE IN THE HAMPTONS”, page 23: “there’s lines to get in” and second column, first line: “there’s hot girls and handsome boys”. Why “there’s” and not “there are”? Giovanna

Ok, this is technically a mistake but there is an increasing tendency in English (both British and American) to mix up the single and the plural when using “there.” We don’t know why this is happening, but it is!
