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.
In the Redlands area tonight?
Debuting at Redlands Market Night tonight (August 29) is [desi]gn Cakes and Cupcakes, a multi-award winning (including Cupcake Wars and a double-winner at the I.E. Cupcake Fair).
The bakery will be selling Apple Bacon Harvest, Salted Caramel, S’mores and Carrot Cake cupcakes from 6 to 9 p.m.

Our new friends over at the soon-to-open Rancho Cucamonga Pieology location have a slight problem.
You see, they’re training their new employees this week and want to put them through their paces.
The only problem is…they’re not open yet, and hence, have no customers.
That’s where you come in.
Spotted on Facebook last night that longtime Thai restaurant Ranu has closed permanently.
The restaurant, 25655 Redlands Blvd., Suite I, Loma Linda, closed back in May, hoping to take a few months to reorganize and then reopen.
That, however, was not to be.
Earlier this year, Del Taco rolled out items on its Buck & Under and New Tastes menus and promoted them by giving them away.
Well, the chain is doing it again!
For the next three Wednesdays (August 28 and September 4 and 11), the chain is giving away items from its Buck & Under menu with any purchase.
Auntie Anne’s is hoping to raise half a million dollars to help fight childhood cancer, and they need your help to do it.
Through October 15, the pretzel purveyor is selling lemon icons for $1, each of which contains a kid-friendly lemon joke and $1 off the purchaser’s next pretzel and drink.
Proceeds from the sales will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization which raises funds to help find a cure for childhood cancer.
But the fun doesn’t end there.
Taco Bell has released the third flavor of its insanely popular Doritos Tacos Locos line into the wild a bit early.
The Fiery Doritos Locos Taco won’t officially be on menu boards until Thursday (August 22), but yesterday the chain posted to its social media accounts that it was already available.
I tried the new taco today for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised. The shell isn’t overly spicy (much less so than Flamas Doritos), and the taco gets a good hit of flavor from the lime seasoning on the shell.
In comparison, I thought the Nacho Cheese flavor was overly salty, and the Cool Ranch flavor just left me underwhelmed.
Head over the jump for a video preview.

We recently reported that Qdoba Mexican Grill would be closing about 20% of its corporate-run stores by the end of September.
We didn’t know that it would happen this soon.
And we didn’t know that Southern California would be a target.
