The first day of spring is just a few days away! Besides looking forward to the warmer weather (and no more snow!) I look forward to Rita’s free Italian Ice day on the first day of Spring! Their fine establishment is once again offering their First Day of Spring promotion for a Free Regular Size Italian Ice to every guest between noon and 10:00 PM on Saturday, March 20, 2010.
I’ve unfortunately noticed quite a few Northern Virginia Rita’s store locations close down over the past year and a half , but the good news is that there are still a few in the DC Metropolitan area. And there’s a new location in Centreville, VA which just opened (read my post here, about how this new store is giving away FREE regular Italian Ice everyday thru Tues. March 23, 2010)!

From what I’ve heard the following Northern Virginia locations are still open: 1 in Alexandria, VA, 2 in Woodbridge (in Potomac Mills Mall and on Minnieville Road), and 1 in Centreville, VA (in the Sully Station Shopping Center). There are also currently 2 locations in DC (1 in Adams Morgan and 1 in Park Triangle on 14th St NW). And there are at least 9 locations in Maryland from what I can tell. Please be sure to call ahead and confirm that your local store is participating before making the trip out on Saturday!
