The store officially opened today, Friday, June 17, at 11 a.m. (with hours running to midnight, Sundays through Thursdays and 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays), but a special grand opening celebration was thrown last night, with giveaways and free samples.
Here's a quick slideshow, in which you'll see co-owner Scott Adams (in the Pinkberry shirt and standing on the pink carpet); a huge line that stretched past several other businesses and around the North Academy Boulevard building; shots of the snazzy interior; and of course, pics of Pinkberry yogurt.
I sampled several flavors, and though the salted caramel is pretty fantastic, I most preferred the mango and watermelon offerings. They're particularly nice topped in fresh fruit of the same kind — a beautiful flavor redundancy, rather than lack of imagination.
Go find your own favorite combination and sit outside on the fireplace-accented patio. My guess is this place is going to do killer business this summer and win a lot of people over to "crackberry" — even amid the abundance of new self-serve yogurt shops.
