Jersey Mike’s Subs’ Month of Giving has begun!
All this month, the sandwich shop will be collecting donations for various charities.
Here in the Inland Empire, the chain is again pairing with Steven’s Hope for Children, an organization that provides housing and other essentials for families with seriously ill or injured kids.
In the rest of the L.A. basin, the beneficiary is the Talbert Family Foundation, a group that provides financial support for families of sick kids.
It’s a market.
No, it’s a deli.
The Brick Market and Deli recently opened at 105 E. Arrow Highway (at Garey Avenue) in Pomona.
The Brick will be celebrating its grand opening Saturday (March 1) and will be holding a drawing for a Sony Blu-Ray player.
Rocky’s Roadhouse, 32150 Hilltop Blvd., Running Springs, will be hosting a grand opening and silent auction from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday (April 28).
All proceeds will benefit to the Running Springs Branch Library.
Deals at the deli’s event include a Boar’s Head beef hot dog, fries and a drink for only $3.
Porsche Boxster race car drivers Eric Oviatt and Regan Steedman will make an appearance and will bring their race cars along!
Silent auction items include an oak trunk and gift basket, and a one-on-one race lesson with Eric Oviatt.
For updates and more information, visit Rocky’s Roadhouse’s Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.
Downtown Rialto’s Patio West Deli is a current deal of the day from Amazon Local.
The deal is $10 worth of food and drink for only $5.
At the time of this post, you’ve only got about 10 hours to take advantage of the deal.
You’re allowed to purchase up to two vouchers, but can only use them one at a time, and you’ve got to use the entire $10 in one fell swoop.
Your purchase price ($5) will never expire, however the bonus $5 will expire on April 9, 2012. The vouchers will be valid beginning tomorrow.
To purchase, follow this link.
Note to self: When eating at a New York-style deli for the first time, don’t start with falafel.
OK, maybe I shouldn’t have ordered falafel. But I was craving it, and I knew that Innabi’s in Redlands was one of the closest places to get my fix.
In fact, they have several variations: as an appetizer, served over hummus; or as a sandwich, wrapped in pita bread (my choice, $3.75), served panini-style, or as a wrap.
Why, oh why, didn’t I order the turkey panini instead?
It’s not that the felafel wasn’t good…it’s just that I should probably have started with something a little more deli-like.
My lunch partner, Richard, made the smarter choice: the pastrami combo ($6.99), which came with a generous amount of lean pastrami on sourdough bread (they were out of the usual rye), steak fries and a soda.
I didn’t believe it either when I saw Josh Dulaney’s Fontana Now blog post here.
Odd. Just odd.
