Good-bye Rita's, Hello Fro-yo

Fears of a summer treat-less Columbia Heights can be heeded. A reader wrote to the Prince of Petworth today that a frozen yogurt shop is set to take over the old Rita's Italian Ice spot in the Park Triangle building. FroZenYo (aka froyo) is set to open in about two weeks. The franchise has two locations already in DC: downtown at 10th and F streets and in Friendship Heights by the Mazza Gallerie. The store's novelty is its self-serve concept:

At froyo, you only pay for what you get. At only 39 cents an ounce, it's also the best deal in town. With an assortment of flavors, toppings, and fresh fruit, you're bound to come up with a concoction to your liking.

While I will miss Rita's this seems like a good replacement for the civic plaza. What do you think?
