If you dont know about Rita's its a popular chain of "water ice" think like kinda like a sorbet. Ritas of Santa Monica is one of the first to open in California. A lot more shops will be opening soon so get used to seeing them! Basically at Rita's you pick if you want custard, ice or a blend of them. They have quite a few options but I suggest you try the ice your first time. They offer two flavors of cherry ice usually (the black cherry has bing cherries in it) and that's usually my standby. The owners here are nice people and have the rights to the entire Westside so if you live in the area you might see them if you decide to go into a Rita's someday.
