The people have spoken.
And the people of the Inland Empire have spoken very loudly.
Last month, Wetzel’s Pretzels asked its Facebook fans which stores should have the chain’s new Pizza Bitz — bite-size snacks made with pretzel dough, topped with cheese and pepperoni — before the rest of America.
The people of the Inland Empire responded in full force: Half of the six stores chosen are here!
The new McDonald’s at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga will celebrate its grand opening from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. today (August 27).
The event will feature free small iced or hot coffee and snack-size Oreo McFlurrys from 4 to 7 p.m. There will also be a $1 Egg McMuffin vs. $1 Big Mac challenge, with proceeds supporting the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House.
Brio Tuscan Grille — which has a location in Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens — is hosting a Cheers to 16 Years celebration, which runs through August 16.
The event includes two limited-edition menu items, a “Pretty in Pink” Birthday Martini and a Raspberry Ricotta Cake.
Members of the chain’s loyalty program will save $16 when they spend $50.
Morning people…today (August 4) is your day!
Make sure you leave a little early so you can stop at Juice It Up! on your way to wherever you’re heading.
That’s because the chain is celebrating its 20th anniversary by giving away small smoothies between 9 and 11 a.m. at participating locations.
Guests can choose either the limited-time California Cooler — made with fresh cucumber, pineapple juice, lemonade, lime sherbet and pineapple — or a Strawberry Wave — a blend of Strawberry juice, non-fat yogurt, banana, and strawberries.

It’s here! Today (July 11 aka 7/11) is 7-Eleven Day, when the ubiquitous convenience store celebrates its anniversary.
And the way it celebrates is by giving stuff away.
Stop in to any 7-Eleven between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. today and get a free small Slurpee, while supplies last.
But the freebies don’t end there.
Blaze Pizza has arrived in Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens and — as is tradition with the “fast fire’d” chain — it’s celebrating with a giveaway.
The pizzeria opens Thursday (June 11) and is giving away a free pizza on Friday (June 12) to followers of its social media feeds on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And, no, you won’t get three free pizzas for following on all three.
The giveaway takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the new location, 7833 Monet Ave.
Blaze also has locations in Riverside and Cabazon, and is opening soon in Eastvale.
As we’ve stated before, we’re big fans of free here at Dine 909.

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
Chipotle Mexican Grill is giving away free food in a promotion for the restaurant’s Sofritas, its organic tofu filling.
But before you head on over and demand a burrito, here’s how it works: Simply head to any location today (January 26) and order any entrée with Sofritas. Then simply bring your receipt back any time between Tuesday (January 27) and February 28 and you’ll get a free burrito, salad, bowl or order of tacos.
Pretty simple, huh? It’s a deal even carnivores can enjoy.
