Overcrowded Pinkberry - WeHo

Pinkberry was as crowded as ever tonight. Who would have thought a frozen yogurt shop would have a line out the door on a Thursday night? After complaints by neighbors, they had to hire a security guard to make sure customers didn't commit minor offenses like double parking, stopping in the red, or getting drunk and delirious as they waited in line. (SEE ASIAN COUPLE ABOVE.)

By time I got there at 9:30, there were about 10 people out the door. Still, it was a brisk 15 minute wait and it's kind of fun just to people-watch 'cause every now and then you'll catch a celebrity or two. Tonight I spotted Sarah Gilbert lounging in the corner with two others, one reportedly from "The 'L' Word."

I always get a small plain yogurt with Fruity Pebbles. I love the combination of crunchy and cold. My friend sticks with the medium green tea yogurt and mango. No, the dark speckles ain't pepper, it's matcha (green tea) powder which acts as an flavor enhancer. Not that it needs any more flavor. It's kinda like sprinklig' crack on crack.

If you've never been to Pinkberry I'm not going to give you the address. You'll just have to find it on your own. By time we left the store at 10:30 p.m. the line was down the street. I counted at least 30 hipsters. Word of mouth is hazardous.

I was at the kiwiberri @ 3rd and la cienega,and at about closing time on Saturday Night I saw the Pinkberry owner along with 2 goons enter kiwiberri smoking a cigar,like some korean mafia goons and told the kiwiberri owners to step outside in a very threatening manner then I and about 10 friends witnessed him threatening the owners of kiwiberri with physical harm, The Pinkberry owner said " You dont know who your messing with, we know where you live so watch your back" We, along with the owners of kiwiberri by the surprised/confused look on there faces, were all very shocked to witness this to say the least, I had absolutley no idea the frozen yogurt was such a dangerous business, they werent kidding when I heard there was a fued between the two companies , but man am I glad I sell morgages for a living instead... WOW!!!!

Wow, I wouldn't have thought it was that competitive. By the way, are the owners of Kiwiberry Korean?
