Claremont launches its second restaurant week today (July 14).
Unlike some of those other restaurant “weeks,” this one actually does last a week, coming to a close on Sunday (July 20).
However, based on what we sampled at the kickoff event this past Thursday, we wish it were longer.
It seems like a lot of eateries are celebrating anniversaries this month and last. Here’s another to add to the list: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
The chain will celebrate its 77th anniversary on Friday (July 11).
That day, guests can receive a dozen original glazed doughnuts for just 77¢ when they purchase any dozen at regular price.
The chain’s sole Inland Empire location is at 4485 Mills Circle.

IHOP is turning 56 and is celebrating by offering a short stack of pancakes for just 56¢ tomorrow (July 8).
All you have to do is visit any participating location between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. to get the deal.

IHOP locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire.

Lots of people like Baker’s Drive-Thru…but how many people “like” like Baker’s?
Well, 100,000 people have “liked” Inland Empire-based Baker’s Facebook page, and the “great food, close to home” chain responded by offering a $1 meal for its fans.
The meal consists of a bean and cheese burrito, small fries and a 16-ounces fountain drink for just a buck.
Southern California McDonald’s restaurants have brewed up a new McCafé beverage and are offering buy-one-get-one free drinks to help promote it.
The new drink — the Horchata Frappé — is made with vanilla, a hint of cinnamon and coffee, and topped with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.
For a limited time, guests can get two Horchata Frappés (or any McCafé beverage) for the price of one during McCafé Social Hour, from 2 to 5 p.m. daily.
