It’s the first day for sales of Baker’s Drive-Thru’s Safe Halloween coupon books!
Sip. Snack. Repeat.
That’s the basic premise of the Claremont Village Wine Walk, which is set for 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday (September 10).
Participants will wander between 40 Claremont Village businesses sipping wine and sampling food from about as many eateries and caterers, including Pine Haven Cafe and Catering, The Brick Deli, Euro Café, Bardot, Last Drop Cafe, The Whisper House, Pappas Artisanal, Nuno’s Bistro and Bar, The Corner Butcher Shop, I Like Pie Bakeshop, à la minute and many, many more.
This year, IHOP is helping out yet again.
From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today (August 23), IHOP is offering a $1 short stack of pancakes, with that dollar going to No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.
The organizers have lined up 14 trucks — both savory and sweet — for the event, including:
- Big Wave Grill
- California Grill
- Cali Fresh Truck
- Gourmet Genie
- Frenzy Fun Foods
- Mustache Mike’s Italian Ice
- Q’s Quality Concessions
- Ragin’ Cajun
- Roll’n Lobster
- Rolling Sushi Van
- StuffNIt Burgers
- Suite 106 Cupcakery
Saturday (June 25) marks the return of the annual Mt. Baldy Fire Department fundraiser.
However, this year, instead of the usual steak fry, they’re doing things a little differently – it will feature food from a small gathering of food trucks and craft beer from a handful of local breweries.
Tour de Fork, which features sampling from restaurants, breweries and wineries from Victoria Gardens and beyond, isn’t one of our favorites just because of all the delicious food and drink. A full 100% of ticket sales benefit local charities. This year’s event benefits the Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation and the Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation.
Now, the bad news: If you don’t already have a ticket, you won’t be going this year. The event, which takes place June 23, is already sold out.
Upland has one. So does Pomona. Starting tomorrow (May 18), Montclair will have a Jersey Mike’s Subs, too.
The new location, 9359 Central Ave., Suite B, is hosting a fundraiser through May 27.
The sandwich shop distributed thousands of fliers with various offers and will donate $3 for each offer redeemed. Recipients are the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and the American Youth Soccer Organization.
It’s simple to participate! Just root through your pantry and gather some non-perishable items (please make sure that they’re not expired and avoid glass containers) and bag them up.
Then just put them by your mailbox before the carrier comes on Saturday.
In years past, we’ve written about the annual Dining Out For Life charity event, during which restaurants help raise money for AIDS service organizations.
Thus far, however, the focus has been on Palm Springs-area restaurants raising money for Desert AIDS Project, which is great, but what about the rest of the Inland Empire?
Well…we’ve got good news: For the first time, Foothill AIDS Project is going to be a beneficiary.
