Upland’s Mes Amis restaurant is hosting its inaugural four-course wine pairing dinners on Jan. 22 and 23.
Two price levels are available: $75 and $125.
The $75 dinner features a selection of Lebanese wines, while the $125 dinner features the recently released 2012 Opus One.
We totally did not see this coming.
We’d followed the progress of the Riverside
Sonic Drive-In, but had no idea one was also opening in Pomona.
It opened at 10 a.m. yesterday (January 11).
The new Sonic is at 40 Rio Rancho Road, near the Walmart in the Pomona Ranch Plaza.
It’s that time again!

It’s Sundowners Family Restaurants’ 34th anniversary today (November 28), and the small, local chain is celebrating by offering a top sirloin steak dinner for just 1¢ — with the purchase of a top sirloin steak dinner for $7.99.
The dinners include Sundowner toast and a choice of baked potato, fried rice, French fries or mashed potatoes and gravy.
Where else but Sundowners can you get
two steak dinners at the insanely cheap price at $8?
Today’s (November 5) the day!
The Melt’s 17th location opens today at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. It’s the chain’s first Inland Empire location.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating its opening
since we discovered it back in June.
menu selections — burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, salads and more — contain no artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, artificial preservatives, artificial flavors or hydrogenated fats.
Jack Teeling, chosen as “World’s Best Global Whisky Ambassador” at this year’s World Whiskies Awards is coming to the Inland Empire.
He’ll be paying a visit to
Vom Fass Claremont next week.
Teelings’s family has been
producing Irish Whiskey since 1782.
Jack will be busy while he’s here, hosting a
whiskey class on the 25th, deciding who the Inland Empire’s best bartender is on the 26th and greeting the public on the 25th and 27th.
The bad news is that these events are booked solid. The good news is that the owners of Vom Fass Claremont are committed to squeezing as many people into the public meet and greet sessions as possible.
Are you ready to sip, snack and shop, all while supporting the Chino Hills community?
The fifth annual
Chino Hills Wine Walk will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. tomorrow evening (October 10) at The Shoppes at Chino Hills.
Proceeds from the event will help the
Chino Hills Community Foundation’s cause to supplement funding for cultural, educational and recreational projects in the city where funding is insufficient or unavailable.
20 wines and appetizers will be featured at participating retailers at
The Shoppes at Chino Hills.
The last couple of weeks, Vom Fass Claremont has been hosting a battle for the Inland Empire’s best bartender, and round one voting wraps up in just a couple of days.
The top three finalists in round one will face off in the Industry Day Cocktail Mix Off at Vom Fass, where they will create cocktails using one of three Teeling Whiskeys available at Vom Fass.
Judges will include local business owners, other bartenders and Jack Teeling (of Teeling Whiskey).
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8680’s Car/Motorcycle Show and Chili Cook-off is going on until 4 p.m. today (September 27) at the post,
8751 Industrial Lane, Rancho Cucamonga.
Yours truly is one of the “local celebrities” that will be judging the chili cook-off. The judging is set to begin around 2 p.m.
Please feel free to come down and help support a worthy cause.
Longtime reader Carl tipped us off Monday night that the Victoria Gardens
Toby Keith’s I has closed. ♥ This Bar & Grill
It’s just the latest of a string of closures for the chain, but whatever happened, happened pretty quickly:
Yelp reviews indicate the restaurant was open Sunday night and the restaurant’s Twitter page posted a link early Monday morning to its now-nonexistent Facebook page.
A Love and Theft concert slated to take place at the venue on September 24
has been cancelled.
Several of the chain’s locations across the country have closed in the last year or so, including a
Phoenix restaurant that opened earlier this year.
In August, workers in Cincinnati
sued the chain for non-payment of wages and concealing the restaurant’s shutdown in July of this year. That location also had several legal issues.
Other recently shuttered locations include
Oxnard, Folsom, Syracuse, N.Y., Newport News, Va., Tucson, Ariz., Orlando, Fla., Woodbridge, Va., Orange Beach, Ala., St. Louis Park, Minn., and Houston. A Rosemont, Ill. location is facing an eviction trial in October.
The restaurants are operated by Phoenix-based Boomtown Entertainment.
♥ This Bar & Grill? Well…maybe not so much.
The Rancho Cucamonga location, which
opened in April 2012, was at 12635 North Main St.
