Do you really love ice cream?
If you do, and you think you’ve got what it takes, good news: Qualifications have begun for Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant’s sixth annual Splendiferously Superific Summer Spectacular Ice Cream Eating Challenge.
Whew…that’s a challenge just reading that.
To qualify, visit any Farrell’s between now and July 12 and pay a $20 entry fee. You’ll receive a limited-edition T-shirt, a $5 coupon for your next visit and a three-scoop sundae.
Then, wolf down that sundae as fast as you can.
Blaze Pizza has arrived in Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens and — as is tradition with the “fast fire’d” chain — it’s celebrating with a giveaway.
The pizzeria opens Thursday (June 11) and is giving away a free pizza on Friday (June 12) to followers of its social media feeds on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And, no, you won’t get three free pizzas for following on all three.
The giveaway takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the new location, 7833 Monet Ave.
Blaze also has locations in Riverside and Cabazon, and is opening soon in Eastvale.
The Tour de Fork is returning for a third “tine” to Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. The fundraising event is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday (June 11) along the center’s South Mainstreet.
I’ve been able to attend both previous events and have enjoyed myself immensely. The 21-and-older event showcases restaurants located both at Victoria Gardens and in the surrounding area.
Past events have also offered sneak peeks at soon-to-open eateries, with Slater’s 50/50, [N7] Creamery and No Clue Craft Brewery all having previewed at the event.
New this year is Blaze Pizza, which happens to be opening at Victoria Gardens the same day.
Tomorrow (May 12) is Free Cone Day at Häagen-Dazs!
Stop by any participating location between 4 and 8 p.m. and you can get a free kiddie cone, just for the asking.
As we’ve stated before, we’re big fans of free here at Dine 909.
Wetzel’s Pretzels is returning to Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, and the location will celebrate by giving away pretzels all day tomorrow (April 23).

The new/old location — which is celebrating its grand opening Friday and Saturday — can be found at 12521 North Main St., next door to the California Pizza Kitchen.

Fontana’s Tio’s Mexican Grill, 16953 Sierra Lakes Parkway, just went upscale with the addition of Tio’s Grille & Cantina next door.
The new place — which had its grand opening on Saturday — looks amazing!
It’s truly a family affair, as the owners’ niece, who operates designstiles, created the look.
You can check out the pics (from Sabra Lattos Photography) here.
