Is it that time again?
Tomorrow (June 7) is National Doughnut Day, an event started by the Salvation Army as a fundraiser and to honor the ladies who served doughnuts to servicemen during World War I.
But really, every day is doughnut day as far as we’re concerned.
OK, so it’s not going to be scorching in the Inland Empire this Memorial Day weekend, but 7-Eleven stores are still going to offer you a cheap way to cool down.
The ubiquitous convenience store chain will be selling medium Slurpees for just 49¢ today (May 24) through Monday (May 27) at participating locations.
Just try not to get brain freeze.
We’ve mentioned before that the Taiwanese chain 85°C Bakery Cafe was inching closer to the Inland Empire, with locations in Hacienda Heights and then West Covina.
Well, it didn’t take long for them to get here.
I visited the West Covina location tonight and saw a sticker in the window advertising that the beverage/pastry/bread shop was hiring for its Chino Hills location.
It’s been a good week for our friends at [desi]gn cakes & cupcakes.
At Sunday’s (March 17) I.E. Cupcake Fair, the bakery took top honors in the professional division in both Best Overall for its Salted Caramel cupcake and Most Unique Ingredient for its Apple Bacon Harvest cupcake.
And this Sunday (March 24), the Food Network will air its return to Cupcake Wars.
We spotted this on their website a while back, but it’s finally a reality…Sub Zero Ice Cream is opening in Rancho Cucamonga!
This is the chain’s sixth California location, but its first in the Inland Empire.
But it’s not our first liquid-nitrogen ice cream shop.
The shop, 10590 Town Center Drive, Suite 170, will open
Monday (March 18) Wednesday (March 20) eventually.
Those of you who checked our Twitter, Facebook or Google+ feeds this weekend might have seen that we finally got our hands on some delicious Sugarbird Desserts cinnamon rolls.
Lucky Facebook fans might be able to get their hands on a six-pack of Sugarbird Desserts cinnamon rolls — for free!
We’ve been anticipating this for a while…the Riverside Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour opens at 11 a.m. tomorrow (January 31)!
Many of you (myself included) remember the old Riverside Farrell’s at 10098 Magnolia Ave., which was converted years ago into a Coco’s Bakery Restaurant.
The new location, at 3610 Park Sierra Drive, threatens to put that old location to shame.
Formerly a Black Angus Steakhouse, it’s the largest of the chain at 8,700 square feet.
The Rancho Cucamonga Dairy Queen (9694 Base Line) is having its Customer Appreciation Day tomorrow (January 26).
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature half-price specials, such as $1.99 banana splits and 99¢ small cones.

Who doesn’t love chocolate?
Diabetics, I suppose, and even most of them probably love chocolate, even if they’re not supposed to eat it.
If you love chocolate, good food and supporting a worthy cause, tickets are available now for the 19th annual Chocolate Fantasy.
The event is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Kiwanis clubs in the Inland Valley typically sell See’s Candy during the holidays to raise funds for their charitable efforts.
This year is no exception, and you’ve got at least three spots to conveniently pick up boxes of candy for friends and relatives (or yourself) and avoid the hassles of mall shopping.
