You would think that a place called Panera Bread would cater to people who like…uh…bread, right?
But what about those who don’t eat bread, because of allergies or dietary restrictions?
Panera’s recently-launched “hidden menu” might just fit the bill.
March is Jersey Mike’s Subs’ Month of Giving, when customers are encouraged to make a donation to each location’s charity partner.
Here in the Inland Empire, that charity partner is the Upland-based Steven’s Hope for Children, which provides assistance to families with seriously ill or injured kids.
The chain’s Month of Giving culminates on Wednesday, March 27, when 100% of that day’s proceeds goes to the charity partner.
Like the return of swallows to San Juan Capistrano, Baconalia! has returned to Denny’s.
OK, so Denny’s skipped a year, but you get the point.
Besides, the 2013 version of Baconalia! nearly doubles the number of offerings from back in 2011.
Back is the infamous (and delicious) maple bacon sundae, along with two other baconated dessert items — the maple bacon milkshake and the salted caramel brownie sundae with bacon (pictured above).
Bacon lovers should head over the jump for the rest of the limited-time menu.
St. Patrick’s Day is a notable day to drink beer, but which beer is the question.
Do you go the traditional route with a Guinness Stout or do you stick with your usual brew, perhaps a Corona even a — gasp! — Coors Light?
We’ve chosen 16 beers based on U.S. St. Patrick’s Day sales and/or popularity in Ireland, and left it to you to choose which one is the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day beer.
Every few days, we’ll tally the votes and narrow the field until there’s a single winner.

Taco Bell’s latest Doritos Loco Taco — Cool Ranch — is officially launching Thursday (March 7), but the chain posted a couple of photos on its Facebook page and website letting fans know they can begin purchasing them tomorrow (March 6), just by asking for them.
The launch of the original Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco has been a massive success — the largest in the chain’s history, reportedly selling over 350 million since it was launched a year ago this week.
That the chain has been developing a Cool Ranch version has been been one of the worst-kept secrets and has been anticipated since the introduction of the original Doritos Locos Tacos.
25¢ won’t even buy you a cup of coffee any more…except at Burger King this week.
Through Sunday (March 10), the fast food chain is promoting its revamped coffee lineup — which now includes lattes — by selling a 12-ounce cup of its new BK Smooth Roast coffee for just a quarter.
The new brew is a Seattle’s Best Coffee 100 percent Latin American arabica blend and is also available in decaf, or iced plain or with flavored with vanilla, mocha or caramel.
Burger King locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire, with the exception of South Mount Vernon Avenue in Colton and West Base Line in San Bernardino, both of which are now closed.
Jersey Mike’s Subs continues its expansion into Southern California, and into the Inland Empire.
The latest spot for the chain is in the Redlands Town Center, “sandwiched” between Noodle 21 and Five Guys Burgers and Fries, at 10040 Alabama St., Suite D.
The restaurant opened late last month.
It’s open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
Jersey Mike’s also has locations in Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, La Verne, Eastvale, Norco and Murrieta.
