What’s for dinner?
How about a heaping helping of philanthropy?
The Mexico Cafe and the San Bernardino Police Officers Association is hosting a fundraiser at the restaurant today (December 8) for San Bernardino Police Officer Gabe Garcia, who is recovering after being shot back in August.
All tips and donations will be given to his family to help with his rehabilitation.
Food truck fans, rejoice!
Tomorrow is the third Thursday of the month, and that means the return of food trucks to the City Hall parking lot in downtown San Bernardino.
Following the overwhelming success of the inaugural event last month, organizers are bringing even more trucks on board for tomorrow’s lunch (November 20).
If you remember, long lines were the norm and some attendees ended up at local eateries due to time constraints. Most of the trucks had sold out by the time the event was over.
Let’s hope the increased number of trucks will help.
The City of San Bernardino is partnering with X103.9, the San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce, Omnitrans, Chaparral Motors and several others to bring food trucks to City Hall on the third Thursday of the month.
The inaugural event is from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. tomorrow (October 16), and the city has picked a great lineup to kick things off.
Scheduled trucks include Bacon MANia, The Greasy Wiener, The Grilled Cheese Truck, Mangia Ristorante on Wheels, My Delight Cupcakery and Piaggio Gourmet on Wheels.
Along with the traditional dancers, crafts and music at Cal State San Bernardino’s annual Native American Day celebration, there will be traditional native food.
The free, family-friendly event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. tomorrow night (September 26) at the university’s lower commons, 5500 University Parkway, San Bernardino.
Free parking is available in lot D.

Congratulations to two restaurant chains that turn 50 this year: Del Taco and Black Angus.
Black Angus has kicked off a yearlong celebration with a classic cocktail menu, featuring timeless libations such as Rob Roy, Old Fashioned, Sidecar, Whiskey Sour and Vodka Gimlet.
In addition, the classic cocktails are available for just $5 with the purchase of any entrée on Tuesdays. The steakhouse also will introduce limited time entrées and seasonal desserts throughout the year.
Del Taco, of course, was born in the Inland Empire, and is intertwined with the histories of Baker’s Drive-Thru, Taco Bell, Taco Tia and Naugles.
Our friend (and Ontario native) Charles Phoenix is returning to the scene of last winter’s doughnut exchange — the iconic Wigwam Motel.
Tomorrow (June 21), he’ll be hosting the Wig Wam Pow Wow, a veritable cornucopia of nostalgic fun, complete with a vintage trailer and classic car show, an old-fashioned weenie roast (featuring Gazzolo’s sausages), a sing-along ’round a bonfire, and of course, one of Charles’ signature retro slide shows.
There are plenty of other surprises in store, including an appearance from the world-famous Bob Baker Marionettes, Ballusionist.com’s Brian Potivn, and the delightful musical stylings of Mr. Tiny and Mary.
We knew that the San Bernardino Elephant Bar, 1050 E. Harriman Place, was closing, and have recently learned that it will close tomorrow (June 11). However, that’s not the end of the story. We’re hearing that at least 15 of the chain’s 44 locations — a little over a third — are closing this week. Continue reading
Remember last fall when the Movoto real estate site ranked San Bernardino as the worst city for food lovers?
The site’s blog has extended an olive branch of sorts, with a new post highlighting 15 San Bernardino restaurants that will “blow the taste buds out of your mouth.”
That’s a good thing…we think.

You probably read about the San Bernardino Domino’s Pizza worker who was shot and killed last week.
The location where she worked — 1644 E. Highland Ave., #101 — is hosting a fundraiser today (February 19).
The franchise owner will donate 100% of sales to the Nelly Kantun Memorial Fund, and her co-workers are donating their time to make the fundraiser a reality.
