OK, so it’s not going to be scorching in the Inland Empire this Memorial Day weekend, but 7-Eleven stores are still going to offer you a cheap way to cool down.
The ubiquitous convenience store chain will be selling medium Slurpees for just 49¢ today (May 24) through Monday (May 27) at participating locations.
Just try not to get brain freeze.
Lake Elsinore’s Craft Brewing Co. is celebrating turning three next month and has invited a baker’s dozen of Inland Empire brewers to the party (and one from a little further south).
The shebang kicks off at 1 p.m. (noon for V.I.P.s — more on that later) and lasts until 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 1.
In addition to unlimited tastings from 15 breweries, there will be food and music.
Head over the jump for the details, and a special offer if you act fast.

If you happened to catch fellow blogger David Allen’s post on Friday, you might have read that Slater’s 50/50 is coming to Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens.
The Orange County-based burger restaurant, famed for its half bacon-half ground beef patties and its diverse and numerous beer selections, is set to move into the spot vacated by Harry’s Pacific Grill, 8009 Day Creek Blvd., sometime this summer.
Beer lovers, we’ve found the perfect way to kick off your Memorial Day weekend.
The Taste of Brews returns to Riverside’s White Park (3901 Market St.) on Saturday, May 25.

Food truck fans will want to head to Redlands on Saturday.
Not only are there some delicious food trucks scheduled at the Hangar 24 AirFest and fifth anniversary, but there will be a (dare I say better?) selection of trucks at the Redlands Optimists’ annual Car Show and Chili Cook-off.
Held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sylvan Park, University Street and Colton Avenue, your suggested $5 admission donation will benefit the Optimists’ charitable work with children.
Being the geek that I am, I signed up yesterday to preview the new Google Maps.
Today I got my invitation, so I quickly checked it out.
While going through the tour of the new web app, I decided to search for “Breweries, San Bernardino County,” since I’ve been working on a map of Southern California breweries for our sister blog, Beer Goggles.
While searching, I found a new brewery…thank you Google Maps!
