Fro-Yo and Free Stuff
By RenaissanceTrop... on November 20, 2008
There's a new frozen yogurt place called Yoppi
a couple blocks from my office in SF-- and for the grand opening, they
were running all sorts of promotions. Hey, fro-yo is a pretty big draw
in and of itself, and when you add free stuff, I'm so there!
It's slightly different from most places because it's self-serve,

toppings. Don't even get me started on the 10 syrups they had

got me a decent-sized swirl of yogurt plus my desired toppings (see how
big the cup is?!?!), and I even got a free canvas tote! Hello, new
Ok, ok, so I'm a little crazy to be eating frozen yogurt in the middle of November. Do you ever do weird things like that?
