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.
Not only can attendees sample from dozens of breweries, including several from the Inland Empire, but there will be several food trucks and local restaurants providing comestibles, and three bands to enjoy.
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!
Total Wine and More has been hosting a series of beer tastings this week (May 13 to 19) to celebrate American Craft Beer Week.
The Rancho Cucamonga store, 8201 Day Creek Blvd., is offering different breweries’ beers (including several Southern California breweries) to sample for a nominal fee.
Head over the jump for the schedule.
May is National Stroke Awareness Month and the help the cause, this week Trio Restaurant has been donating 10% of lunch and dinner proceeds to the Stroke Recovery Center in Palm Springs.
OK, so the week is more than half over, but the fundraiser continues through Sunday (May 19), so you’ve got all weekend to enjoy some great food and help support (and if you’re quick, you can still catch tonight’s prix fixe!).
Trio is at 707 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs. Click here for reservations.
The colorful and ubiquitous mall and county fair food vendor known as Hot Dog on a Stick is escaping the food court.
Last summer, the chain opened its a small drive-thru in West Jordan, Utah, its first.
This summer, it’s opening its first California drive-thru…right here in the Inland Empire!
Even though Tuesday (May 14) is National Dance Like A Chicken Day, you don’t have to dance like a chicken to get a free Feisty Leg at Feisty Chicken & Grill.
Unless you want to.
