frozen yogurt craze finally hits chicago!!

i've never been this excited about an opening... berry chill has blessed the windy city with fabulously healthy frozen yogurt treats. thanks to gen art, i was able to get a taste of the delicious yogurt (with endless toppings) at shop chicago. since then, i was on a hunt to find the place. well everyone, they are conveniently located downtown on state between ontario and erie. and you can hit them up on the late night because they are open til 4am on fridays and saturdays!
