Mendocino Farms hits El Segundo

The still-opening The Point in El Segundo is landing its own Mendocino Farms tomorrow, which will bring the total location number up to nearly a dozen across Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

Funny or Die goes in hard on Temple City's HomeTown Buffet

Two friends from Funny or Die decided to go to the nearest HomeTown Buffet to them, in Temple City. It did not go well, and apparently hasn't been going well for that location for a long, long time. Their compilation of negative reviews is pretty hilarious.

We have great Creamistry

Irvine's popular nitrogen-cooled ice cream officially has an outlet in Beverly Hills. The heatwave-beater opened on Beverly Drive just yesterday.

No quarters needed

Yes, we now know that Starry Kitchen is coming back, landing at upcoming arcade spot Button Mash in Echo Park. And for their kick-off celebration? Free balls today, from noon to 2 p.m.

Still filling after all these years

The Daily Bulletin files a fun one on Ontario's 70 year-old institution Vince's, home of some famous spaghetti. It's a longtime Inland Empire favorite, and *gasp* only recently decided to add lasagna to the menu.
