New Rita’s Italian Ice Opening in Princeton Today
Rita's Italian Ice will be open in the Princeton Shopping Center, starting today (Wednesday, May 13th) at noon, according to The Patch.
Notice I didn't say reopening, this Rita's location is brand new. The owner, long time Bucks County resident, Jeff Antell, is eager to serve you telling The Patch, "As a walk up shop, we feel fortunate that we are able to open and operate safely (following state, local and corporate guidelines) to provide a little ice, custard and happiness to our guests during these challenging time. My family and I look forward to meeting the community at the store in the near future."
It's finally warming up a little bit (hopefully it stays like this) so visiting this new Rita's would be a great treat, and a nice way to get some fresh air and feel normal...at least for a little while. Although, the outdoor tables and benches are closed...that's definitely not normal, but, a sign of the times. What's your favorite treat at Rita's? I love a chocolate/chocolate Misto and the popular Gelati. I just had a Banana Ice and Chocolate Custard Gelati...oh my, yum.
Here's an idea: bring a blanket for the back of your car, pop the back open, and tailgate with your Rita's in the parking lot, obviously, not near anyone else. I noticed people doing that at a Starbucks recently.
The new Rita's Italian Ice is located at 301 North Harrison Street, in the Princeton Shopping Center, near McCaffrey's. The hours right now are 12pm - 8pm, but, will hopefully be extended when it's safe to do so.
