Northwest Cherries has commissioned one restaurant in each state to create a new menu item featuring Rainier cherries. Representing Maryland -- Gertrude's, where they'll be serving Doug Wetzel's Rainier cherry almond tart served with sour cream ice cream. The promotion culminates on July 11 -- National Rainier Cherry Day, but that's a Monday, and Gertrude's is closed on Mondays. So they're getting a head start, beginning tonight.
