Tickets are still available for this year’s Tour de Fork

We’ve mentioned before that one of our favorite Inland Empire food events is the Tour de Fork at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga.

Last year, the event sold out rather quickly, but this year, if you’re interested in going, you’re in luck.

That’s because tickets are still available for the event, which is set for 5:30 to 8 p.m. June 29 along the center’s North Mainstreet.

Last week, we discovered that Dog Haus’ long-planned Rancho Cucamonga location would be in Victoria Gardens.

On Saturday, as I went to investigate the future Dog Haus location for myself, I discovered that it was right next door to Jacks Urban Eats, which, as it turns out, opens Friday (March 3).

New location spotted for Rancho Cucamonga Dog Haus

We knew Dog Haus was still planning a Rancho Cucamonga location. We just didn’t know where.

Dog Haus out? zpizza in in Rancho Cucamonga

It appears someone has turned the tables on us.

While we were patiently waiting for Dog Haus to open its third Inland Empire location at 11144 E. Foothill Blvd., Suite 130, in Rancho Cucamonga, zpizza quietly moved into the spot.

Although the specific page from Dog Haus’ website regarding the Rancho Cucamonga site no longer exists, the location (complete with address) is still on Dog Haus’ locations page as “coming soon.”

However, there’s no more room at that address for another eatery. Zpizza — which opens Friday (December 23) — filled the final vacancy.
