It might be cold out there today - it was five-degrees on the thermometer this morning, but that's not stopping Rita's Italian Ice from opening a new store today in the Mid-Atlantic Market in Morgantown. If you like Italian ice, frozen custard or a mix of them (a favorite around here is the cherry ice mixed with vanilla custard in a Misto Shake) - you'll love Rita's.
And, just FYI, this new Rita's Italian Ice shop is very close to our Cheat Lake home rental, "The Treehouse".
So, stop by, order something yummy and support this new business in our area!

Owen Schmitt, who played fullback for WVU in the 2005-07 seasons, will soon open Schmitt's Saloon, a music venue, restaurant and bar, located at 245 Cheat Road in the Cheat Lake area of Morgantown.
Schmitt and his partner, Todd King, aim to "create a place for anyone and everyone to hang out, party and play or listen to great music."
According to Schmitt, his restaurant will have a "West Virginian country flair." The idea came together when Schmitt was playing in the NFL and approached King, a "successful restaurateur," who then put together the plan.
The restaurant is scheduled to open in the beginning of February, 2013.
