It seems like a lot of eateries are celebrating anniversaries this month and last. Here’s another to add to the list: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
The chain will celebrate its 77th anniversary on Friday (July 11).
That day, guests can receive a dozen original glazed doughnuts for just 77¢ when they purchase any dozen at regular price.
The chain’s sole Inland Empire location is at 4485 Mills Circle.

The long-anticipated Souplantation has opened in Chino Hills.
It’s the first of its restaurants to sport a new, fresh design.
The restaurant had its soft opening last month, but will be hosting a grand opening fundraiser on Thursday (July 10).
The Rancho Cucamonga Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant is hosting a fundraiser today (June 30) for the family of San Bernardino Police Officer Shaun Jarvis.
Jarvis was killed in an off-duty motorcycle accident on the 91 Freeway in Corona back in May.
To participate, simply print out the flier (at right) and bring it to the restaurant, 10742 Foothill Blvd., between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m., and Farrell’s will donate 25% of your bill to the cause.

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.
The Chino Denny’s at 12180 Central Ave. has recently been renovated and the location is celebrating its renewal with special offers this Friday and Saturday (June 27 and 28).

- $1.99 Everyday Value Slam (two buttermilk pancakes, two eggs cooked to order and two bacon strips or sausage links)
- $3.99 Classic Burger & Fries
- $5.99 Chicken Strips

It’s time again for the Cheers event at Fairplex in Pomona. Tonight’s (June 21) the night.
Billed as “L.A.’s wine, spirits, beer and food festival,” the event showcases the award-winning wines, spirits, beers, olive oils and dairy of the 2014 Los Angeles International Competitions.
More importantly, it’s a fundraiser for educational programs at the Learning Centers at Fairplex, which offers educational programs for students of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
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.
