The frozen custard and flavored ice shop will give away any flavor of their signature water ice in any size from 12 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Friday, March 20th. Rotating flavors include blood orange, cherry, raspberry and creamy flavors like dulce de leche and cookies 'n cream. Sugar-free and dairy-free options are always available. The good news is that if the predicted four inches of snow falls there won't be much of a line for this free treat. This annual tradition will take place snow or sunshine! Rita's NYC is located at 2486 Broadway between W. 92nd & 93rd St. By MELISSA KRAVITZ Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments Comments section is temporarily on hold. Here’s why.
