At 10:45pm tonight (Sunday) I still hadn’t eaten dinner, and skipping meals doesn’t cut it for me. So as I was driving down MLK looking for an open restaurant, I noticed the heavenly TCBY had a big neon sign that read Drive-Thru OPEN. Heaven forbid I go through the drive-thru, though, because a driver can never eat ice cream while driving. So, I went inside to friendly faces despite the fact they were cleaning up and closing shop.

By the way, for those of you who have always wondered… TCBY stands for “The Country’s Best Yogurt.”

Freshman and sophomore year, TCBY was at least a bi-weekly event. However, since all these other frozen yogurt places have popped up, my loyalty has significantly waned. The first of these new yogurt joints in Austin? To my knowledge it was YogoBerry on South Congress which has now closed. The next of its kind: Yogurt Planet at The Triangle. About 16 flavors of soft-serve ice cream including the plain flavor that Pinkberry made so popular, and many, many toppings. And after “Planet” came Yogurt Spot on Guadalupe, then Swirll on the drag, and many more places are opening soon. One on 24th on top of Starbucks called JuicyTart!

Check out this map and let me know which froyo places I missed!
