Boba for days (and days)

When you think about Black Friday deals, food doesn't really come to mind. At least, not for us. So we were curious when our local Lollicup at Diamond Jamboree decided to go balls out for the already over-the-top shopping day. And believe us when we say it's a hefty reward for waiting around.

First off, this is only available at the location off Alton and Jamboree. Next, it will require a purchase to get something back. Still with us? Then we shall continue!

Veterans Day Special At Bruxie

Categories: Bargains, Holidays

Thanks for serving

It's easy to lose sight of what a holiday represents. Whether it be a day off school or work, there is always significance to what we are observing. In a month where we give thanks, today we are thanking those who have served in the armed forces. Regardless of how you feel about the military, these people put their lives before ours. Show some respect.

We looked up lists of food specials for vets, but noticed our go-to waffle brand was left out of the mix. They might not be the big boy chains streaming commercials and celeb endorsements, but Bruxie is a local joint that's done well for themselves.

It's so fluffffyy!
What's a Fluff Ice? It's the same as a shaved snow. What's a shaved snow? Shaved snow, for those uninitiated, isn't shaved ice. It starts as a block of flavored frozen milk, which is planed by blade into long, ribbon-like sheets that are fluffy, airy and absent ice's granular crunch. This becomes the base for toppings of sugary beans, peanuts, fudge or fruit. If you've not had it, Class 302 and dozens of other vendors have popped up all over OC to offer it.

Fluff Ice is one of those. It already has a store in Costa Mesa.

McDonald's
This one costs the usual.

If you're going to swing by McDonald's for a McMuffin, or if you need an excuse to, they're giving away free cups of their coffee until September 29th during breakfast hours.

Why? Frankly, I don't know.

But they put out a commercial that seems to be inspired by Juan Valdez and everything...

Taco Maria.
Costa Mesa Restaurant Week happens next week. The event, which started happening three years ago, is becoming one of the better restaurant weeks in the county because of the strong roster of restaurants Costa Mesa already has.

When I say strong, I mean it. We're talking about Taco Maria, which is probably one of the most lauded and exciting restaurants to open in California in the last decade; Mastro's Steakhouse, the king of all red-meat-based meals; and old favorites like Old Vine and Hamamori.

Free Pizza at Blaze Pizza in Mission Viejo TODAY

Blaze Pizza, which you probably already know from its outlet in Irvine across from UCI, is expanding fast. There are more planned outlets of this build-your-own-pizza chain in OC than you thought were necessary to fight off the Pieologies and other like-minded pizza concepts of the world, including Orange, Santa Ana at Mainplace, Fashion Island, Laguna Niguel, Brea Mall and Brea Gateway.

If you're thinking "Wow, that's a lot of malls", it's probably because Blaze is founded by Rick and Elise Wetzel, the same people who brought you Wetzel's Pretzels.

Free Organic Coffee at Tastea in Costa Mesa until Friday

Categories: Bargains, Now Open

If you have a habit of trawling the boba shop-riddled landscape of Rowland Heights, you might have come across one called Tastea. And if you actually drive up from the Costa Mesa area to get to it, or the existing one in Garden Grove, you may not have to anymore. The mini chain has opened a store in Costa Mesa at 1175 Baker Street, Suite E-21, and to make people aware of its existence in an area that's, well, not entirely boba-friendly, today until Friday, June 13th, it will be giving out "free organic mini coffees" from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m.

It will hold its grand opening on Saturday, June 14th.

Here's a cut-and-paste job I did on a press release I got on what they actual serve:
