I guess when you turn 50, you can celebrate all year long.
That’s what 7-Eleven is doing for the ever-popular Slurpee.
This week, the ubiquitous convenience store is promoting Slurpee Fiftee with a buy-one-get-one free deal.
Through Sunday (September
18 25), you can pick up a Slurpee for yourself and get one free for your bestie. Or your frenemy. Or the homeless guy that hangs out in front of the store.
7-Eleven stores are located throughout the Inland Empire.
The long-gestating Super Pizza Hut opens today (August 30) in north San Bernardino.
During a pre-opening military appreciation day on Sunday, I was able to take a peek at the new location.
I was told that the first-of-its-kind restaurant was the nation’s largest Pizza Hut, and I don’t doubt it.
It’s not often you can get dinner for just a buck, but you can today (August 23) at the Fontana Pancheros Mexican Grill.
The location is offering burritos for only one dollar from 4 to 6 p.m.
Be sure to say Hi to Bob.
The Fontana Pancheros is at 16421 Sierra Lakes Parkway, Suite 300.
Rancho Cucamonga…are you ready to party?
Mr. Baker Bakery and Café will celebrate its grand opening Thursday (August 11) with giveaways, raffle prizes and live music.
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).
Eat a Blizzard, help sick kids.
Look at the calendar…it’s July 11, AKA 7/11, AKA Slurpee Day!
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.
Del Taco recently introduced its new platos at select locations in San Bernardino, Redlands, Colton, Loma Linda and Riverside.
The platos come with a choice of either a wet burrito, two fish tacos or two street tacos, plus cilantro lime rice, beans and chips and salsa.
Prices range from $6.49 to $7.49.
It appears to be a second go-round for Del Taco’s platos. They were also tested about a year ago in the Sacramento area.
If you’re interested in trying them for yourself, head to one of these locations:
- Colton: 834 W. Valley Blvd.; 1010 E. Washington St.
- Loma Linda: 24898 Redlands Blvd.
- Redlands: 1624 W. Redlands Blvd.; 602 E. Redlands Blvd.
- Riverside: 3487 Arlington Ave.; 4407 Brockton Ave; 6333 Riverside Ave.; 1255 University Ave.; 3199 Van Buren Blvd.
- San Bernardino: 272 E. 40th St.; 2665 S. Waterman Ave.
A moment of silence, please.
The Riverside Jason’s Deli has closed.
We were big fans of the restaurant, and appreciated its strive to use ingredients free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors and colors. Oh, and the free ice cream. In fact, we even named it a Dine 909 favorite.
However, I can’t help but feel that the location was doomed from the start.
