Fans know Carolyn’s Cafe in Redlands is a great spot for breakfast or lunch.
However, man (and woman) does not live on breakfast and lunch alone. So, Carolyn’s Cafe is hosting another of its rare BBQ Nights this Saturday (February 21).
The restaurant will be serving pulled pork and brisket plates and sandwiches and a Southwest bacon avocado burger, along with side dishes and desserts — including Carolyn’s deliciously decadent coffee cake.
The event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m., but you probably want to get there early to avoid any sell-outs.
Carolyn’s Cafe is at 1711 W. Lugonia Ave., Suite 101.

Pinkberry is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a trio of limited-time flavors — Sea Salt Chocolate, Passion Fruit and Raspberry White Chocolate — and by offering small cups of frozen yogurt with toppings for just 10¢ from 7 p.m. to close tomorrow (January 30).
However, there’s a catch on the 10¢ deal.
The promotion is only available at a limited number of participating locations, and none of the Inland Empire locations — Rancho Cucamonga, Mira Loma, Chino Hills and Corona — are on that list.
Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
Chipotle Mexican Grill is giving away free food in a promotion for the restaurant’s Sofritas, its organic tofu filling.

Then simply bring your receipt back any time between Tuesday (January 27) and February 28 and you’ll get a free burrito, salad, bowl or order of tacos.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (December 6) and Sunday (December 7). It takes place in downtown Indio, between Highway 111 and Indio Boulevard, along Miles Avenue, Towne Street, Smurr Street and Requa Avenue.

The event will run from noon to 5 p.m.
The award-winning bakery will give away gift bags to the first 50 customers and a cupcake to the first 100 customers There will also be giveaways all day long.
Be prepared to delight in a special cupcake menu featuring the bakery’s all-time best sellers.

Baker’s Drive-Thru debuted its limited-time pumpkin shake last week.
The hand-scooped dessert will only be available as long as the ingredient supply holds out, which is expected to be just a few more days.
The shake is available in one size, at the bargain price of $2.
I had a sneak preview of the shake before its unveiling and thought it was delicious, tasting a little like pumpkin pie with whipped cream.
Baker’s Drive-Thru locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire.
