Farrell’s returning to Riverside

Back in its heyday, Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour had a location in Riverside, on Magnolia Avenue behind what was then Tyler Mall, a location which eventually became a Coco’s.

Today we discovered via Nancy Luna’s Fast Food Maven blog, that Farrell’s is returning to Riverside!

It’ll be just down the street from the old location, at 3610 Park Sierra Drive, in what used to be a Black Angus Steakhouse.

At 8,700 square feet, the new location will be the largest for the reborn chain.

The new location is projected to open in the fall.

Update: Farrell’s is currently seeking management positions for the new location, and will begin taking applications for other locations beginning in late September or early October.

They are looking to hire more than 130 employees.

Finally, The Yum! Festival

We can’t believe its almost here.

The Yum! Festival, originally planned for what seems like an eternity ago, but was actually March 25, is finally happening on Saturday (June 23).

The event, which will bring a whopping 51scheduled trucks (including the I.E.’s My Delight Cupcakery and Where’s the Fire? Gourmet Pizza) to Ontario Mills, will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a northwest mall parking lot, near Fuddruckers and Carl’s Jr.

The original date was rescheduled due to a forecasted thunderstorm that didn’t quite materialize. Tickets purchased for the original date were refunded.

If you won free admission from us (or from any other site), you’ll still be able get in free on Saturday.

Presale tickets are $5 (plus $1.27 service fee) and are available here.

Tickets will be $7 at the door. Kids four and under are admitted free.
