This month, military folks can get a free sundae at Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour.
Through May 31, the restaurant is celebrating National Military Appreciation Month by giving a free Red, White and Blue sundae to all current and former military personnel.
Civilians can purchase the sundae for $7.99 and Farrell’s will donate $1 to A Million Thanks, a nonprofit military support organization.
Farrell’s Inland Empire locations are in Rancho Cucamonga (10742 Foothill Blvd.) and Riverside (3610 Park Sierra Drive).
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.
Tamale fans can rejoice in the fact that the Riverside Tamale Festival is back for a second year of entertainment, family fun, contests, and of course, tamales!
The festival will take place once again at White Park, 3936 Chestnut St., in downtown Riverside.
The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 19.
Talk about timely.
Hot on the heels of last week’s 5.1 temblor in La Habra and this week’s deadly Chilean earthquake, Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour has created a Rocky Road Quake Shake, made with chocolate ice cream and a marshmallow swirl and topped with whipped cream, almonds and a cherry.
Through Sunday (April 6), the chain is donating 100% of the sales of the $4.99 dessert to the American Red Cross
Guess who’s turning 55…Barbie!
Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour restaurants are celebrating the iconic doll’s birthday with a daylong celebration on Sunday (March 9).
Guests are invited to join Barbie and Ken from 10 to 11 a.m. at Farrell’s (except Santa Clarita, sorry) for a Barbie-inspired Zoo sundae, filled with 30 scoops of ice cream.
After singing a special birthday song to the guest of honor, the Zoo will be shared with the young guests (12 years old and younger) in attendance.
Craving some Asian pastries, but don’t feel like driving all the way to Chino Hills to go to the 85°C Bakery Cafe?
Then simply head to Uncle Chuang’s Bakery in Riverside’s University Village.
The bakery opened late last year, but we finally got around to stopping by today to check it out.
The big question is: Will there be any Star Wars-themed cupcakes?
That’s because, Sunday, May 4, is the date for the second annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair, at which yours truly will again be a judge.
The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. (with V.I.P. admission at 11 a.m.) at the newly-revamped Riverside Convention Center, 3637 Fifth St.
The organizers, I.E. Shine On, note that they have learned much from last year’s event and things should run a lot more smoothly this year.
Shakey’s Pizza Parlor has decided to give its fans a little break tomorrow (January 21).
The pizzeria has posted a “Fan Appreciation” coupon for its famous Bunch of Lunch on its Twitter feed.
Coupon-holders will receive the all-you-can-eat meal for just $5.99 (with the purchase of a regular-sized beverage), a savings of $2 off the current price of $7.99.
Allan Borgen’s Feed Me 411 has teamed up with Riverside’s Pita Mediterranean Grill and New York Deli (formerly Innabi…remember when they used to have a Redlands location?) to offer a coupon for a free falafel sandwich.
The offer is limited to the first 500 takers, so don’t delay!
Click here for the coupon, which you can either print the coupon or display it on your mobile device.
Pita Mediterranean Grill and New York Deli is at 16810 Van Buren Blvd., Suite 102.
Forty-five years ago this Friday (January 10), the first Old Spaghetti Factory opened in Portland.
The restaurant chain is celebrating that anniversary with a contest and special prices.
On Monday and Tuesday (January 13 and 14), as well as January 20 and 21, complete meals will be available for just $4 and $5.
