Another one of our favorites

Found on our Top 5 list last year, Sessions West Coast Deli won locals over with creative fillings sandwiched between perfect bread. While most new restaurants come and go, they are preparing to launch a second location in Huntington Beach. In fact, they're about to reach an anniversary in Newport.

To celebrate, it's a very simple deal: one of their best sellers for a buck.

Panxa Cocina is participating. So go!

You know how many restaurants are in Long Beach? Kind of a lot! And the best time to be a person that reads a paper that has the privilege of covering Long Beach restaurants is right about now.

Why? Because Long Beach Restaurant Week starts this weekend (from March 22 to 28).

Don't bother me. I'm busy having a relationship with my pizza.

Cheap pizza and delicious pizza don't always cross paths. But when they do, there's a good chance it's Pi Day! Once you recover from (another) Friday the 13th, hit up one of these joints for a hot, cheesy slice.

The chain stepping up to the plate for this special occasion is none other than Blaze. One of the many DIY brands out there, their very first location was at UC Irvine. Our favorite toppings include crumbled meatballs and ovalini mozzarella. In addition to the fast fire'd sale, they're wanting to give folks an additional hook-up.

Who wants to win a tour to pick these?

There are folks who live for the weekend, and those who would rather sleep the day away. If you're of the former (and looking for something to do), we've got an activity that offers you snacks and gets you some Vitamin D. Did we mention John Deere selfies?

Locals are familiar with the family-run business that is Tanaka Farms. Our favorite memories have to do with their strawberry picking tours-- which started up earlier in the month. What's happening this weekend sounds like a big social, but you can be the judge.

Cheap Eats: Buy One Get One Free Boba and $2.75 Snacks at I-Tea Cafe

Buy one get one free boba and $2.75 popcorn chicken!

You've got a $10 in your wallet. You've got a growling stomach. You happen to be walking down Jeffrey Road in Irvine when, suddenly, you break down. You really need to eat.

The closest thing to you is Irvine Village Center across from Irvine Valley College, a business complex that's as dull and dead as the gray-beige paint on its buildings. Strangely, though, this complex has housed some of Irvine's greatest gems: Paradise Perks and Sushilicious, which are now gone (God rest their souls). But there's still Thai Spice. Oh, and I-Tea Café.

Warning: Don't try to eat the spoon!

National Frozen Yogurt Day creeps up on us each year. After one holiday weekend, but before the next, multiple chains want to share the love for a few hours today. Our preferred brand is based in Orange County, featuring a former On the Line subject.

The limited-edition spoons pictured are to promote their newest flavors: Hershey's Chocolate Milkshake and York Peppermint Pattie. Additionally, new toppings include York Peppermint Patties Minis and Hershey's Mini Kisses. Check out the excellent collaboration, or stick with some of their more classic tastes. Here's what you need to know.

Five Selections For Newport Beach Restaurant Week

Provenance grub

You actually have two weeks (until February 1) to partake in the so-called restaurant week, but that's how it's being advertised. The longer we can save a few bucks, the better. While our debit card would rather remain in its wallet, we are not afraid to go out and motor along PCH for our supper.

With 64 places to choose from, it can be hit-or-miss at some of them. Newps price points go between $10 - $25 for lunch and $20 - $50 for dinner. Menus are pretty divided between showcasing current menu selections and crafting something special just for the occasion. Our biggest fear is receiving smaller portions, but being charged full-sized prices. That's the risk you take with these things. In any event, we're ready to throw in our two cents on where to try.
