Craving some Asian pastries, but don’t feel like driving all the way to Chino Hills to go to the 85°C Bakery Cafe?
Then simply head to Uncle Chuang’s Bakery in Riverside’s University Village.
The bakery opened late last year, but we finally got around to stopping by today to check it out.
Just found out via Facebook that the Etiwanda Roadhouse is hosting a fundraiser for 28 year old Heather Deiderich, a mother of three who was just diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Close friends and family are raising money to help the Deiderich family.
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.
Jersey Mike’s Subs’ Month of Giving has begun!
All this month, the sandwich shop will be collecting donations for various charities.
Here in the Inland Empire, the chain is again pairing with Steven’s Hope for Children, an organization that provides housing and other essentials for families with seriously ill or injured kids.
In the rest of the L.A. basin, the beneficiary is the Talbert Family Foundation, a group that provides financial support for families of sick kids.
It’s that time again!
Time to eat pancakes and help out local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The day is tomorrow (March 4) and the place is your local IHOP restaurant.
For those of you who are unaware, it’s a really simple fundraiser.
The big news this week is that Taco Bell is launching its new breakfast menu nationwide in March.
The Mexican fast food chain, already popular with night owls, is looking to capture the early birds as well.
New items include the Waffle Taco (imagine a folded version of a Jack in the Box waffle sandwich), a breakfast burrito and an A.M. grilled taco.
The big question is: Will there be any Star Wars-themed cupcakes?
That’s because, Sunday, May 4, is the date for the second annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair, at which yours truly will again be a judge.
The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. (with V.I.P. admission at 11 a.m.) at the newly-revamped Riverside Convention Center, 3637 Fifth St.
The organizers, I.E. Shine On, note that they have learned much from last year’s event and things should run a lot more smoothly this year.
It’s a market.
No, it’s a deli.
The Brick Market and Deli recently opened at 105 E. Arrow Highway (at Garey Avenue) in Pomona.
The Brick will be celebrating its grand opening Saturday (March 1) and will be holding a drawing for a Sony Blu-Ray player.
Not all the new eateries are moving into the new, eastern section of Upland’s Colonies Crossroads.
Coming soon to the former Taco Factory spot in the older, northern section at 1945 N. Campus Ave., Suite C, is Souvlla Greek Grill.
The restaurant is hiring.
A new Juice It Up! has opened in La Quinta, and the location will be celebrating its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday (February 22).
The first 50 customers will receive a free small smoothie or raw juice blend, plus everyone will receive $1.05 off all smoothies and juices during the grand opening celebration.
