Though the weather isn't really getting us in the spirit of Italian ice or ice cream lately, we can't let that impact our decision to celebrate 'National Italian Ice Day' - right?

Save the date for this Friday, May 3 and make your way to Rita's for #NationalItalianIceDay.  Here's the deal for the celebration, according to their Facebook event page . New users to their mobile app will receive a coupon for a free regular Italian Ice that is redeemable in-store on May 3, but you need to show the app to get the deal. You will have had to download the app between April 22 and May 3 to get the offer.

If one free ice isn't enough for you, how about the chance to win free ice for a year (um, yes) - they are looking for suggestions for new Italian Ice flavors.  Submit yours here - imagine all the people who will want to be your BFF if you end up winning :)
