Blaze Pizza has arrived in Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens and — as is tradition with the “fast fire’d” chain — it’s celebrating with a giveaway.
The pizzeria opens Thursday (June 11) and is giving away a free pizza on Friday (June 12) to followers of its social media feeds on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And, no, you won’t get three free pizzas for following on all three.
The giveaway takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the new location, 7833 Monet Ave.
Blaze also has locations in Riverside and Cabazon, and is opening soon in Eastvale.
The Tour de Fork is returning for a third “tine” to Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. The fundraising event is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday (June 11) along the center’s South Mainstreet.
I’ve been able to attend both previous events and have enjoyed myself immensely. The 21-and-older event showcases restaurants located both at Victoria Gardens and in the surrounding area.
Past events have also offered sneak peeks at soon-to-open eateries, with Slater’s 50/50, [N7] Creamery and No Clue Craft Brewery all having previewed at the event.
New this year is Blaze Pizza, which happens to be opening at Victoria Gardens the same day.

It also commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending and home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines, initially during World War I.
