Today (August 6) is national Root Beer Float Day, and three fast food chains are offering special deals in honor of the day.
Perhaps you (like us) missed the Hello Kitty Cafe truck’s previous visit to Victoria Gardens back in September of last year, or perhaps you did and are still craving those doughnuts you got last time.
Either way, the truck is making a return trip to the center from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday (July 30).
It’s the day when 7-Eleven traditionally offers free Slurpees, but today is special, because it’s the 50th anniversary of the frozen treat.
So, head to your local 7-Eleven between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and get your free small Slurpee (the convenience store chain just introduced a birthday cake flavor), and then make sure you download the 7-Eleven app on your smartphone.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the opening of both Noodle World Jr. and CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me) in the Daybreak Plaza on the northeastern outskirts of Ontario Mills, and the first one out of the gate will be CREAM.
The gourmet dessert shop — which features super-premium ice cream, cookies, ice cream sandwiches, shakes, sundaes and more — will hold its grand opening from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday (June 4).
The Mug Shakes, a new dessert shop in the Victoria Gardens Food Hall, had a very successful soft opening over the weekend.
The shop experienced long lines of customers — perhaps due to the tantalizing pictures of its products (like the one on the right) that garnered thousands of reactions on Facebook — and ended up having to close early due to sell-outs.
The location, which specializes in designer shakes, has been closed for a few days to regroup, hire some more employees and will reopen at 10 a.m. on Thursday (May 5).
The event will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., with the following highlights:
- Ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m.
- Free frozen yogurt and toppings from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Balloon artist from 3 to 6 p.m.
- A $5 unlimited cup of yogurt from 3 to 11 p.m.
- DJ with music and giveaways from 6 to 9 p.m.
- Drawing for prizes including a TV, two Kindle Fires and Yogurtland gift cards at 9 p.m.
In honor of Pi Day, which took place earlier this week, the Claremont Pie Festival will be celebrated from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today (March 19).
The annual festival, which will run along Second Street between Oberlin and Harvard avenues, will feature pie baking and eating contests, a recipe hunt, entertainment, a “kids korner” and a car show.
Well…Bring Your Own Cup Day is back, and because it’s the brain-freezing beverage’s 50th anniversary this year, it’s being stretched over two days.
Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt’s new Hidden Valley Plaza location in Corona isn’t content with having a one-day grand opening. Nuh-uh.
The shop is celebrating all week long, beginning today (December 19).
The specials continue through next Saturday, December 26.
Of course, the shop is closed on Christmas, so no deals that day.
Current flavors include: Holiday Eggnog, Cake Batter, Vanilla Snow, Green Apple Tart, Original Tart and Dole Pineapple Sorbet.
