Perhaps you (like us) missed the Hello Kitty Cafe truck’s previous visit to Victoria Gardens back in September of last year, or perhaps you did and are still craving those doughnuts you got last time.
Either way, the truck is making a return trip to the center from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday (July 30).
Claremont speakeasy The Whisper House is celebrating its first anniversary today (July 15) with food and drink specials and a Bottle Logic Brewing takeover.
The eatery will open at noon and will offer $2 short rib sliders and $2 beer specials until 4 p.m.
Fundamental Observation, Darkstar November and Leche Borracho will be available during the tap takeover, which will also incorporate a “steal the glass.”
Want to help feed hungry people right here in the Inland Empire?
Then come to Mathis Brothers in Ontario on Friday (June 24) and participate in
Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino’s “Stuff A Bus” event.
Bring non-perishable food items to donate, or purchase pre-filled donation bags for $5 at Albertsons or Vons stores.
First, the good news:
Victoria Gardens’ Tour de Fork is back for a fourth year. The event is one of our favorite Inland Empire food events.
Tour de Fork, which features sampling from restaurants, breweries and wineries from Victoria Gardens and beyond, isn’t one of our favorites just because of all the delicious food and drink. A full 100% of ticket sales benefit local charities. This year’s event benefits the
Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation and the Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation.
Now, the bad news: If you don’t already have a ticket, you won’t be going this year. The event, which takes place June 23, is already sold out.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the opening of both Noodle World Jr. and CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me) in the Daybreak Plaza on the northeastern outskirts of Ontario Mills, and the first one out of the gate will be CREAM.
The gourmet dessert shop — which features
super-premium ice cream, cookies, ice cream sandwiches, shakes, sundaes and more — will hold its grand opening from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday (June 4).
Fin. Fine. The end.
While today’s (May 23) opening of
Oggi’s Pizza & Brewing Company in the Colonies Crossroads in Upland is just the beginning for the new restaurant, it also represents the end.
It’s the end of new development at the center. It’s now at 100% capacity.
Upland has one. So does Pomona. Starting tomorrow (May 18), Montclair will have a
Jersey Mike’s Subs, too.
The new location,
9359 Central Ave., Suite B, is hosting a fundraiser through May 27.
The sandwich shop distributed thousands of fliers with various offers and will donate $3 for each offer redeemed. Recipients are the
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and the American Youth Soccer Organization.
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).

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.
Reservations are now available for the next Let’s Dine Out Grub Club event set for 5 p.m. April 10 at Cachanilla Chinese Restaurant, 305 E. Holt Ave., Pomona.
The three-course meal consists of a pair of appetizers, a selection of nine entrées, and two desserts.
