Tonight (August 4) is National Night Out and while different cities celebrate in different ways, in my opinion, Rialto is doing it right.
Along with the bounce houses and the musical performances, the city has again scheduled food trucks for the event.
This year’s truck lineup includes the Greasy Wiener, the Grilled Cheese Truck, Where’s the Fire Gourmet Pizza, Suite 106 Cupcakery, Hang 10 Tacos and Drive Me Cookie.
Rialto’s National Night Out event is set for 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Civic Center, bounded by First Street and Rialto Avenue, and Willow and Palm avenues.

We’ve known about the San Bernardino Jimmy John’s since we spotted it in mid-May, and initially was told it was set to open in the first part of June.
Well, it turns out that timeline was a little optimistic.
The eatery, 1060 Harriman Place, Suite C5, is now set to open on Tuesday (July 21).
The franchise owners have another location in the works.
Today (June 18) is the third Thursday of the month, and that means food trucks will be returning to downtown San Bernardino! The trucks will again be parked from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the City Hall parking lot on the south side of Court Street between D and E streets.
The original plan, after Redlands’ Dhat Island closed in November, the plan was to find a new place and reopen in the spring.
Fans are still waiting.
Tonight, however, fans will be able to enjoy some delicious Caribbean cuisine when the owners have a pop-up at Carolyn’s Cafe, 1711 Lugonia Ave., Suite 101, Redlands.
The event, which follows a similar pop-up two weeks ago, begins at 4:30 p.m.

We’ve been watching construction going on at the former Elephant Bar at 1050 E. Harriman Place in San Bernardino and had figured out it was going to be Jiro’s Japanese Restaurant, but then San Bernardino Sun reporter Ryan Hagen came along and filled in the blanks for us.
The new restaurant is expected to open in May.
We’re thinking it should do well, since there hasn’t been a Japanese restaurant in the Hospitality Lane area since Yamazato of Japan closed in December 2008.
And, no, we’re not counting Seattle’s Best Teriyaki.
