You used to be able to shop at fresh & easy, but we all know how that turned out.
The Mug Shakes, a new dessert shop in the Victoria Gardens Food Hall, had a very successful soft opening over the weekend.
The shop experienced long lines of customers — perhaps due to the tantalizing pictures of its products (like the one on the right) that garnered thousands of reactions on Facebook — and ended up having to close early due to sell-outs.
The location, which specializes in designer shakes, has been closed for a few days to regroup, hire some more employees and will reopen at 10 a.m. on Thursday (May 5).
As I was glancing through the latest Rialto city administrator update (you can read it yourself here), something caught my attention.
A new shopping center, anchored by “Smart and Final Express” (likely a Smart & Final — Extra!) and a Dollar Tree, is also scheduled to have a “Hawaiian Ono” (Ono Hawaiian BBQ, perhaps?) and a drive-thru Dunkin’ Donuts!
That would bring the total number of Inland Empire locations to four.
In years past, we’ve written about the annual Dining Out For Life charity event, during which restaurants help raise money for AIDS service organizations.
Thus far, however, the focus has been on Palm Springs-area restaurants raising money for Desert AIDS Project, which is great, but what about the rest of the Inland Empire?
Well…we’ve got good news: For the first time, Foothill AIDS Project is going to be a beneficiary.
Got a taste for tamales? Then Riverside’s White Park is the place to be today (April 16).
The fourth annual Riverside Tamale Festival is set for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Of course, there will be contests — for tamale eating, and for both professional and non-professional tamale makers — but the festival is much more than that.
If you’re thinking of going to the Inland Empire Salsa Festival — which takes place 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 14 at White Park in Riverside — today (April 12) is the day to buy tickets.
That’s because through the end of the day today, you can save up to 52% on tickets to the festival via a special Groupon deal.
We’re giving away Free Haus Dogs All Day on Friday! Come #GetStuffed with any of these delicious Haus Dogs, including our #Freebird. Hope to see you at our Grand Opening!
