Lighted mini-signage and interactive outdoor computer display arrived at the outset of this month.  In the interim, the pieces have slowly been coming together – freezer equipment, fro-yo containers, POS system, pink neon, etc.  We stopped by yesterday evening, and learned that the so-called swirling date is this Saturday.  By the look of it, there’s more than a dozen flavors from which to choose.

There you have it – two fro-yo joints opening within one block of each other in as many weeks.  Just like that.  Which is better: Pop Yogurt or Red Mango?
