Sixty years ago, the first Shakey’s Pizza Parlor opened in a former grocery store in Sacramento.
Monday (July 7), the pizzeria is celebrating its 60th anniversary by giving away free giant slices of pizza from 3 to 5 p.m. at participating Southern California locations. No purchase is necessary.
Participating Inland Empire locations include Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, Upland, Chino, Fontana, Montclair, Moreno Valley, Palm Springs, Riverside and Temecula.
You can either print the above coupon or display it on your mobile device.

Pizza fans! Mark your calendars for next Tuesday (June 17).
That’s the day the new Blaze Pizza will be giving out free pizza.
It’s the second Inland Empire location for the chain, which opened at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon back in April.
The new pizzeria is in Riverside Plaza, at 3540 Riverside Plaza Drive, Suite 328.
Riverside County’s first Pieology opens this Thursday (April 17).
The new location is at 2347 California Ave., Suite 102, Corona.
And before you ask, we don’t have an update on when the Upland location, 1071 E. 19th St., Suite A, (in the Colonies Crossroads) will open.
A Hawaiian pizza is the latest weapon in the fight against cystic fibrosis.
The pie, a creation of a 10-year-old named Harry, is made with red sauce, mozzarella, ham, pineapple and cilantro.
You see, Harry’s friend, Morgan Johnson, 12, is battling the disease.
Pieology Pizzeria is using Harry’s pizza to raise funds to help his friend and other folks in the same situation.
Through June 1, Pieology is donating 15% of all sales of Mo Jo’s Hawaiian Pizza to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Yucaipa’s Pizza Chalet is on the move!
Its lease was not renewed at its longtime location at 34579 Yucaipa Blvd., so the owners moved the pizzeria about a block down the street to 34299 Yucaipa Blvd., in the former Community Bank building.
The new location was scheduled to open last week, but the opening was pushed back due to problems with the gas meter installation.
For updates, check the restaurant’s Facebook page.
Update: The restaurant is open at its new location and is hiring! Click here for details.
You probably read about the San Bernardino Domino’s Pizza worker who was shot and killed last week.
The location where she worked — 1644 E. Highland Ave., #101 — is hosting a fundraiser today (February 19).
The franchise owner will donate 100% of sales to the Nelly Kantun Memorial Fund, and her co-workers are donating their time to make the fundraiser a reality.
Our pal Allan Borgen from the Let’s Dine Out show and FeedMe411 has shared another great deal with us.
He has posted a coupon good for 20% off lunch or a free dessert with dinner at Mustazzoli Ristorante Italiano in Ontario.
All you have to do is click here and print out your coupon. Easy peasy.
Mustazzoli Ristorante Italiano is at 1845 E. Holt Blvd.
Shakey’s Pizza Parlor has decided to give its fans a little break tomorrow (January 21).
The pizzeria has posted a “Fan Appreciation” coupon for its famous Bunch of Lunch on its Twitter feed.
Coupon-holders will receive the all-you-can-eat meal for just $5.99 (with the purchase of a regular-sized beverage), a savings of $2 off the current price of $7.99.
In case you missed it, downtown Upland has lost one restaurant, is losing another, but is gaining a third.
Already closed is Aria Restaurant and Lounge, which was owned by the same folks who own Antonino’s Italian Restaurant, Haandi Indian Cuisine, Sixty 6 Sports Bar and Lounge and the Magic Lamp Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.
Facebook fan Diana reports that Charlie’s Red, White and Blue American Deli and Bar is moving into the space at 296 N. Second Ave.
The Rancho Cucamonga Pieology Pizzeria caused quite a stir when it opened at the beginning of September.
Of course, I think some of that had to do with the fact that they gave away pizzas during training periods in the days leading up to the grand opening.
But that doesn’t diminish the fact that they serve delicious pizza, with as many toppings as you like, for $7.50 or less.
This week, it’s Chino’s turn to experience the Pieology, um, experience.
