The people have spoken.
And the people of the Inland Empire have spoken very loudly.
Last month, Wetzel’s Pretzels asked its Facebook fans which stores should have the chain’s new Pizza Bitz — bite-size snacks made with pretzel dough, topped with cheese and pepperoni — before the rest of America.
The people of the Inland Empire responded in full force: Half of the six stores chosen are here!
Tomorrow (May 12) is Free Cone Day at Häagen-Dazs!
Stop by any participating location between 4 and 8 p.m. and you can get a free kiddie cone, just for the asking.

It’s the first weekend in December, and that means it’s time for the Indio International Tamale Festival!
The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (December 6) and Sunday (December 7). It takes place in downtown Indio, between Highway 111 and Indio Boulevard, along Miles Avenue, Towne Street, Smurr Street and Requa Avenue.
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
Pasadena-based Blaze Pizza opened its first Inland Empire location yesterday (April 24), in the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, at 48650 Seminole Drive, #1108.
Blaze, founded by Elise and Rick Wetzel (founder of Wetzel’s Pretzels) is a one-price, as-many-toppings-as-you-like pizzeria, with pizzas fast-fired in three minutes.
The annual Dining Out for Life fundraiser for AIDS and HIV support services returns to the Palm Springs area tomorrow (April 24).
More than 40 restaurants are participating this year.
The concept is simple: All you have to do is dine out at any of the participating restaurants on that day. The restaurants donate a portion of your meal — anywhere from a generous 33% to a staggering 75%, depending on the restaurant — to a designated AIDS service organization.
In Palm Springs, that means Desert AIDS Project.
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.
OK, so it’s been open a couple of weeks, but the last time we drove past a little over a month ago, it still hadn’t opened.
“It” is the Cabazon In-N-Out Burger.
So, whether you’re heading to the outlets or to Morongo Casino and Cabazon is your destination, or you’re heading further east (the Date Festival is on through this weekend), you’ve got another option for food along the way.
The iconic Ruby’s Diner will celebrate its 31st anniversary by giving a gift to its fans.
On Monday (January 27), diners at Ruby’s can get a Rubyburger with fries for just $3.10.
The deal is good from 11:30 a.m. to close.
But that’s not all. Guests dining on Monday will also receive a card good for a free Rubyburger with the purchase of an adult entrée any time between Tuesday (January 28) and February 13.
