Once again, a website has determined the Inland Empire is a wasteland for foodies.
As you may recall, back in 2013, the real estate site Movoto posted on its blog — known for its myriad “top ten” lists — a list of “America’s Worst Cities for Food Lovers,” based on such criteria as food trucks, ice cream shops, caterers and gourmet grocers per capita.
Guess what? San Bernardino was at the top of that list.
Recently, in conjunction with World Food Day (October 16), the personal finance website WalletHub took the 150 most populous U.S. cities and ranked the “Best and Worst Foodie Cities for Your Wallet.”
Surprise! San Bernardino wasn’t at the bottom of the list. That distinction goes to another Inland Empire city: Moreno Valley.
However, San Bernardino didn’t rise too far from the bottom, ranking number 137.

The event is set for noon to 6 p.m. at various businesses in the downtown area.

Jack Teeling, chosen as “World’s Best Global Whisky Ambassador” at this year’s World Whiskies Awards is coming to the Inland Empire.
He’ll be paying a visit to Vom Fass Claremont next week.
Teelings’s family has been producing Irish Whiskey since 1782.
Jack will be busy while he’s here, hosting a whiskey class on the 25th, deciding who the Inland Empire’s best bartender is on the 26th and greeting the public on the 25th and 27th.
The bad news is that these events are booked solid. The good news is that the owners of Vom Fass Claremont are committed to squeezing as many people into the public meet and greet sessions as possible.
