As if you needed an excuse to check out Claremont’s restaurant scene, Claremont Restaurant Week begins today (January 16).
The event works as it has in the past: Some participating restaurants are offering prix fixe meal specials, while others are showcasing customer favorite dishes, seasonal specials, and housemade desserts, all as a way to attract folks from across Southern California to dine in the city.
Like I said, as if.
The event runs through January 29.
Head over the jump for a list of participating restaurants.
Real Mex Restaurants, owners of the El Torito, Chevys Fresh Mex and Acapulco Mexican restaurant chains (among others), recently shuttered 14 of its restaurants, including two here in the Inland Empire.
It appears someone has turned the tables on us.
While we were patiently waiting for Dog Haus to open its third Inland Empire location at 11144 E. Foothill Blvd., Suite 130, in Rancho Cucamonga, zpizza quietly moved into the spot.
Although the specific page from Dog Haus’ website regarding the Rancho Cucamonga site no longer exists, the location (complete with address) is still on Dog Haus’ locations page as “coming soon.”
However, there’s no more room at that address for another eatery. Zpizza — which opens Friday (December 23) — filled the final vacancy.
Where once was four there now is none.
The Inland Empire’s last remaining Elephant Bar — at Montclair
Plaza Place — closed last month.
Not to incite panic, but there’s a little more than a week left until Christmas. Have you finished your gift list?
No? You’re in luck.
Many restaurants — from fast food chains to local independents — are giving bonuses with the purchase of gift cards.
Upland has a new place to hang out and have a burger and a beer (or two).
Wicked Cow Burgers & Brews is celebrating its grand opening from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. today (December 14).
Want to help hungry folks right here in the Inland Empire this holiday season?
Simply stop by one of our Inland Empire newsrooms and drop off non-perishable food. The donations will be delivered to Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino, which will get the food to people who need it.
Although the new Rock & Brews restaurant at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino has been open for a little while, the eatery is hosting its grand opening tomorrow (December 6) featuring two of its co-owners: Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS.
Fans are welcome to attend the grand opening and meet the rockers during the event.
How much do you love froyo?
If your answer is somewhere north of “a little bit,” Yogurtland is offering a Black Friday deal that will melt your heart.
This week is MOD Pizza’s birthday week and the chain will be “Spreading MODness” through Sunday (November 27).
The “made-on-demand” pizza chain will donate $1 of each MOD-size pizza sold this week to a selected organization.
