Though Erin Upston Cuevas grew up in Greensboro, she’s been gone 10 long years, off to Los Angeles where she’s been working in the film industry. “I worked for six years with Ridley Scott and Tony Scott,” she says, helping put together films like In Her Shoes and A Good Year. “I spent two months in Provence, France for that one,” she says. Now she and her mother have taken an authentic LA treat — high-quality, self-serve frozen yogurt — and made it available in Greensboro. Taste Yogurt Bar, at 2417-D Lawndale Drive, ( has 20 flavors of yogurt and almost 60 toppings. “It’s all live and active cultures, probiotic,” she says. “It’s a healthy treat that tastes good and everyone can mix their own.”
