Guess who’s turning 55…Barbie!
Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour restaurants are celebrating the iconic doll’s birthday with a daylong celebration on Sunday (March 9).
Guests are invited to join Barbie and Ken from 10 to 11 a.m. at Farrell’s (except Santa Clarita, sorry) for a Barbie-inspired Zoo sundae, filled with 30 scoops of ice cream.
After singing a special birthday song to the guest of honor, the Zoo will be shared with the young guests (12 years old and younger) in attendance.
Krispy Kreme is celebrating Daylight Saving Time by offering guests a free original glazed donut on Sunday (March 9).
No purchase is necessary.
The Inland Empire’s sole Krispy Kreme is at 4485 Mills Circle, Ontario.
Craving some Asian pastries, but don’t feel like driving all the way to Chino Hills to go to the 85°C Bakery Cafe?
Then simply head to Uncle Chuang’s Bakery in Riverside’s University Village.
The bakery opened late last year, but we finally got around to stopping by today to check it out.
Just found out via Facebook that the Etiwanda Roadhouse is hosting a fundraiser for 28 year old Heather Deiderich, a mother of three who was just diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Close friends and family are raising money to help the Deiderich family.
Yucaipa’s Pizza Chalet is on the move!
Its lease was not renewed at its longtime location at 34579 Yucaipa Blvd., so the owners moved the pizzeria about a block down the street to 34299 Yucaipa Blvd., in the former Community Bank building.
The new location was scheduled to open last week, but the opening was pushed back due to problems with the gas meter installation.
For updates, check the restaurant’s Facebook page.
Update: The restaurant is open at its new location and is hiring! Click here for details.
The big question is: Will there be any Star Wars-themed cupcakes?
That’s because, Sunday, May 4, is the date for the second annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair, at which yours truly will again be a judge.
The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. (with V.I.P. admission at 11 a.m.) at the newly-revamped Riverside Convention Center, 3637 Fifth St.
The organizers, I.E. Shine On, note that they have learned much from last year’s event and things should run a lot more smoothly this year.
It’s a market.
No, it’s a deli.
The Brick Market and Deli recently opened at 105 E. Arrow Highway (at Garey Avenue) in Pomona.
The Brick will be celebrating its grand opening Saturday (March 1) and will be holding a drawing for a Sony Blu-Ray player.
Not all the new eateries are moving into the new, eastern section of Upland’s Colonies Crossroads.
Coming soon to the former Taco Factory spot in the older, northern section at 1945 N. Campus Ave., Suite C, is Souvlla Greek Grill.
The restaurant is hiring.
A new Juice It Up! has opened in La Quinta, and the location will be celebrating its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday (February 22).
The first 50 customers will receive a free small smoothie or raw juice blend, plus everyone will receive $1.05 off all smoothies and juices during the grand opening celebration.
For those who were waiting, the Chipotle at Upland’s Crossroads Colonies has opened.
Thursday’s (February 13) opening followed the recently-opened Panera Bread and Pick Up Stix.
Next on the list: The Habit Burger Grill.
