Reservations are now being taken for a special five-course holiday beer-pairing dinner at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse locations throughout the Inland Empire.
The dinners will take place beginning next Monday (November 25).
Price is $30 per person, and obviously, you’ve gotta be 21 or older to participate.
A trio of Inland Empire breweries are celebrating first anniversaries today (November 16).
From north to south, they are Oak Hills Brewing Company in Hesperia, Redlands’ Ritual Brewing Co., and Wiens Brewing Company in Temecula.
Panda Express has stepped up and is collecting donations for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts.
Donations are being taken at all Panda Express locations through December 4.
Panda Restaurant Group will match 100% of all contributions received.
The funds will benefit the American Red Cross and the Tzu Chi Foundation.
It’s been a short while since we’ve updated you all on recent restaurant changes.
Here’s a few that readers have tipped us on and a couple we’ve discovered just driving around the Inland Empire.
Head over the jump to get started.
Upland’s Dale Bros. Brewery is teaming up with Ontario’s Drake Family Farms for a beer and cheese pairing event this Saturday (November 16).
For $13, participants will get a full cheese plate, plus a beer flight.
The pairing event runs from 2 to 5 p.m. at the brewery, 2120 Porterfield Way.
Local beer, local cheese…sounds like a win-win!

Today (November 12), Ontario’s My Delight Cupcakery began collecting items to fill Thanksgiving baskets for donation to Foothill Family Shelter.
The bakery will post different items on its Facebook page through Friday (November 15).
Customers who bring in any of the items listed for that day will get 25% off their in-store purchase.
For example, those who brought in canned green beans, boxed potatoes and/or stuffing today got the discount.
For more information, click here.
My Delight Cupcakery is at 1520 N. Mountain Ave., Suite B-108.
About a month ago, Montclair’s Dolce closed its doors to prepare to launch a new menu.
The bakery and bistro is celebrating those changes (along with the end of a year-long expansion and remodel) with a grand re-opening celebration that will last through tomorrow (November 10).
The eatery is also re-branding itself as the city’s first gastropub. With 15 beers on tap, another 24 available in bottles and a fairly eclectic menu, I’d say that’s a pretty apt moniker.
Here’s a unique way to help hungry folks.
St. Hyacinth Academy in San Jacinto is hosting a Bizarre Bazaar from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (November 9).
Vendors will be setting up and selling their wares in the school’s multipurpose room, 275 S. Victoria Ave.
The event is also a food drive. Those who bring in five pounds of non-perishable food items will get a surprise gift.
Stout fans, call in sick* tomorrow (November 8) and head to Hangar 24 Craft Brewery in Redlands.
That’s because they’ll have seven special stouts available for International Stout Day.
The brews will be available in half-pints, as well as a flight.
The Barstow Station Dunkin’ Donuts opened almost right on schedule Monday (November 4).
The location is the chain’s second in its return to California after shutting down its 15 Southern California locations just before the turn of the century (and a failed Sacramento location in 2002).
An outlet opened on Camp Pendleton in May of last year.
