Owner Lynda Krzyzaniak invites you to fill your cup with a rotating roster of a dozen tempting frozen yogurt flavors, and an even three dozen tasty toppings for a cool $.39 per ounce. Krzyzaniak’s frozen yogurt is nonfat, with three choices no-sugar added, and one nondairy. As Pinkberry trumpets its connection with big-name celebrities, Krzyzaniak decided to make some noise of her own, and opened her brightly decorated shop with an appearance by the ever-popular Denver Broncos cheerleaders. Yogurt Guru welcomes you Sun.- Thur., 11a.m.-10p.m.; and Fri.-Sat., 11a.m.-midnight. If you don’t mind risking yogurt in the keyboard, take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.

While we’re on the topic, what better time to congratulate Roy Weinstein and his cold, cold crew at Gelato d’Italia, 250 Detroit St., on celebrating 13 years in Cherry Creek North. Weinstein offers some three dozen varieties of gelato and sorbetto, coffee, tea, sandwiches, salads, soups and other decadent desserts. For the uninitiated, Gelato has about half the fat and half the air (for more flavor) of traditional ice cream. For an even lighter treat, try the sorbetto, which is fat- and dairy-free, and made of 100 percent pure fruit purees. Gelato d’Italia is open Sun.-Thur. until 11p.m., and Fri.-Sat. until midnight. Info: 303-316-9154 or www.gelatoditalia.com. It is a well-known fact that man (and woman alike) cannot live on frozen treats alone. You have to balance things out with a burger once in a while to bring in all food groups. David Pellegrin and Rebekah DonovanPellegrin, owners of Q Worldly Barbeque, 2817 E. 3rd Ave., have broadened their horizons even further (How far can you go past worldly?), opening Eco-Burger one door to the east, on the former site of Soleil Mediterrenean Grill. Eco-Burger offers a “morally delicious” minimalist menu of burgers, fries and milk shakes, with the building, the menu and the overall business philosophy reflecting a commitment to ecological sustainability. The light fixtures and plumbing fixtures are environmentally friendly, the energy provided by Xcel wind power and solar panels. Recycling and composting are the order of the day. And the grub? You’ll savor grass-fed beef patties (plus black bean and tuna burgers), the fries come tossed with sea salt, black pepper and parsley, the milk shakes and malts are made with Boulder Ice Cream and root-beer floats fizz with Bull & Bush’s own local brew. For those preferring adult beverages, you’ll have a choice of boutique beers and white and red sangría.
You can get your eco-friendly eatsdaily, 11a.m.-9p.m. Info: 303-316-9100.
