A Hawaiian pizza is the latest weapon in the fight against cystic fibrosis.
The pie, a creation of a 10-year-old named Harry, is made with red sauce, mozzarella, ham, pineapple and cilantro.
You see, Harry’s friend, Morgan Johnson, 12, is battling the disease.
Pieology Pizzeria is using Harry’s pizza to raise funds to help his friend and other folks in the same situation.
Through June 1, Pieology is donating 15% of all sales of Mo Jo’s Hawaiian Pizza to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
We’ve been tracking the progress of several new eateries in Upland’s Colonies Crossroads, with Panera Bread, Pick Up Stix and Chipotle opening in recent months.
The latest is just about to open.
The Inland Empire’s newest Habit Burger Grill will officially open to the public at 10:30 a.m. on April 2, but the restaurant will host three fundraisers before that date.
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.
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.
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.
For those who were waiting, the Chipotle at Upland’s Crossroads Colonies has opened.
Thursday’s (February 13) opening followed the recently-opened Panera Bread and Pick Up Stix.
Next on the list: The Habit Burger Grill.
Hot on the heels of the Apple Valley Jersey Mike’s Subs opening, another new location is opening Wednesday (February 19) with a fundraiser.
The new San Dimas Jersey Mike’s Subs distributed 3,000 coupons good for a free regular sub with a minimum $1 donation. Proceeds will benefit Gladstone, Ekstrand, Shull and Allen Avenue elementary schools.
The fundraiser will last through Sunday (February 23).
The new Jersey Mike’s, 466 N. Lone Hill Ave., will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
OK, so it’s been open a couple of weeks, but the last time we drove past a little over a month ago, it still hadn’t opened.
“It” is the Cabazon In-N-Out Burger.
So, whether you’re heading to the outlets or to Morongo Casino and Cabazon is your destination, or you’re heading further east (the Date Festival is on through this weekend), you’ve got another option for food along the way.
