Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlours are celebrating Barbie’s 54th birthday (I know…she doesn’t look a day over 18!) as only Farrell’s can.
With lots of noise, a special birthday song and a Barbie-inspired Zoo sundae, complete with sparklers and the guest of honor herself perched on top!
The whole event kicks off at 10 a.m. tomorrow (March 9). The first 30 kids 12 and under will share in the Zoo sundae, but all kids in attendance for the birthday party will receive free ice cream.

Riverside’s Inland Empire Brewing Company is celebrating its fourth anniversary Saturday (February 23) in a big, big way.
Let’s start with the numbers. A staggering 26 Inland Empire brewers will be represented at the event.
Add to that a baker’s dozen of brewers from outside the I.E.
And on top of that, add ten food trucks and four bands.
What do you get? One heck of a party!
We’ve been anticipating this for a while…the Riverside Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour opens at 11 a.m. tomorrow (January 31)!
Many of you (myself included) remember the old Riverside Farrell’s at 10098 Magnolia Ave., which was converted years ago into a Coco’s Bakery Restaurant.
The new location, at 3610 Park Sierra Drive, threatens to put that old location to shame.
Formerly a Black Angus Steakhouse, it’s the largest of the chain at 8,700 square feet.
Every second Thursday this year, Hooters locations in Southern California, Washington and Oregon will honor military personnel by feeding them.
Active-duty and retired military can receive a free chicken sandwich or burger and fries with the purchase of a drink. Proof of service is required.
This is the third year of the chain’s “Dress Up Days” military appreciation campaign.
This year’s first Dress Up Day is Thursday (January 10).
Hooters has Inland Empire locations in Ontario (725 N. Milliken Ave.) and Riverside (6225 Valley Springs Parkway, Unit 17).

Slaving over a holiday ham is quickly losing its appeal, huh?

The countdown to the return of Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour to Riverside is moving right along.
Get your “Happyitis” in working order, because the restaurant is hosting a job fair from noon to 6 p.m. December 3 to 5 next to its future home at 3610 Park Sierra Drive.
The chain is looking to fill 160 positions, including servers, hosts, bussers, cooks, food runners, experienced expediters, dishwashers, office personnel, fountain artisans, porters, and managers.
Although hospitality experience is a plus, having an outgoing, friendly personality also helps.
Prospective “cast members” are encouraged to complete and print the interactive job application ahead of time and to arrive early to the job fair, as more than 2,000 applicants attended both the Rancho Cucamonga and Brea hiring events.
Hosts and servers who get called back will participate in group auditions December 11 to 13.
The Riverside location is scheduled to open in January 2013.
