A group of women organized by Lululemon's general manager is scouting out places and putting together pop-up yoga events around Annapolis.
Fifteen women put on their workout gear and headed to Lemongrass on West Street Thursday night. They weren't there for steamed dumplings or pad Thai, the women came for an hour-long yoga session in the garden next to the outdoor dining.

A new place for frozen treats plans to open at 40 West St. by the third week of September.
Tasti D-Lite officials is ready to start renovations on its new West Street store once the city gives its final OK for interior construction to begin. "We just signed the lease about a week ago and got our floor plan from corporate," said Manager Mary Templin. "We're ready to probably start painting the outside this week." The "battleship gray" building will be painted a "bright, cheery ice cream blue" in order to make the store more recognizable, Templin said. "We want people to say the ice cream store on West Street, you know, the blue one," she said.
