Rita’s Closing for the Winter or For Good in Adams Morgan?

Dear PoPville,

I know that Rita’s Water Ice at Florida and California NW closes down during the winter, but this is the first time I’ve seen a “Rent availability” sign in the window during the winter months. Any clue if this is a permanent change or just a chance to use the space while Rita’s is closed?

  • All Rita’s locations I’ve ever seen close during the winter, and I’ve always wondered how they can afford to pay the rent…

  • The Rita’s at Columbia Heights apparently did not share in the abundant new wealth of the revitalized area and closed in early 2010. Perhaps this location has shared the same fate.

    That being said – if you want the real Italian Ice experience, try Uncle Louie G’s next time you are in Hagerstown, MD. ULG’s is a Brooklyn based chain and their ices are some of the best I’ve had.

  • Not sure why it doesn’t become a hot soup store in the Winter. Yum.

  • I love ritas. I could go for some vanilla custard now. with sprinkles. Yum
