Wow…it’s been a long while since we’ve updated everyone on restaurant changes here in the Inland Empire.
I’ve been getting bits and pieces from readers and friends and spotting a few things on my own.
Wienerschnitzel is celebrating its 52nd anniversary (and National Hot Dog Month) on Sunday (July 21) by offering guests an original chili, mustard or kraut dog at its 1961 price of 15¢.
You’re limited to one hot dog at that price, however.

Wienerschnitzel locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire.
Sunday (July 14) is Bastille Day, and Mimi’s Cafe is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
One might not think these two things are related, but they are.
You see, Sunday, Mimi’s is rolling back the prices of select menu items to what they were back in 1978, in honor of its 35th anniversary and Bastille Day.
Mimi’s…you don’t look a day over 29!
What exactly is Cow Appreciation Day?
It’s a chance to get some free food from the chicken purveyor, and all you have to do is dress up like a cow.
Get your dancin’ shoes on and get ready for 7-Eleven Day 2013!
This year’s event comes with its own dance, along with an upgrade to a free small Slurpee, instead of those 7.11-ounce versions from years past.
And if that weren’t enough, there’s a cross-promotion with Six Flags that’ll allow you to get in for just $7.11 after 7:11 p.m.
Two deals are offered:
Each flight consists of five four-ounce tasters.
The offer has timed out and could expire at any moment.
As it has around Independence Day for the previous two years at least, the chain is offering the sandwich for just $1.04. The offer is good through Sunday (July 7).

Burger King locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire, though not as many as a year ago, as four locations (two in San Bernardino, two in Colton) have shut down in the last year or so.
On this day (June 13) in 1913, Dave Barham was born.
And who is Dave Barham, you might ask?
In 1946, he started Hot Dog on a Stick near the Santa Monica Pier.
From 4 to 8 p.m. today, the company is celebrating what would have been Dave’s 100th birthday with $1 hot dogs (and veggie dogs) on a stick today. (One per customer, please!)
Really, we’re OK with that.
The next gathering will take place at Riverside’s Packinghouse Brewing Company’s BrewGrass Festival on June 29.
The event will take place from 1 to 6 p.m. at the brewery, 6421 Central Ave., Riverside.
In addition to unlimited two-ounce sample pours from lots of Southern California breweries, the event will feature food trucks and live bluegrass music from The Salty Suites, The Tail Draggers, Shadow Mountain Band and The Original Bladerunners.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, in cooperation with Barstow, Chino, Colton, Fontana, Montclair, Ontario, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino and Upland police departments, will have its first countywide gun buyback tomorrow (June 1).
Guns traded in will be exchanged for Stater Bros. gift cards in varying amounts:
The event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is similar to a highly successful event conducted in December 2010 by the San Bernardino Police Department.
