Picture this: it’s the weekend following Thanksgiving. Family members from out of state are still in town, and leftovers are becoming scarce. What do you do to quell an increasingly restless crowd?
Fortunately, the COURIER has you covered. Here are four restaurants from all corners of Claremont to satisfy any palette, from new upstarts to local mainstays.
With the city budget tight and local businesses competing with online retailers, the easiest way to help our friends and neighbors—and community—is to shop Claremont.
The most flexible option to help our local economy is to purchase Claremont gift cards from the Claremont Chamber of Commerce.
Each card sold includes a list of more than 150 retailers and restaurants that participate in the program. All this and more inside our Holiday Magazine 2019 inside the print edition of the COURIER. COURIER photo/Kathryn Dunn
There was no shortage of enthusiasm at Gus’s BBQ last Monday night, after Director of Human Services Ann Turner thanked city employees for their work to help launch the city’s new Silver Platters initiative. Silver Platters will raise money to fund a new kitchen that prepares meals for seniors at Joslyn and Blaisdell Centers. Each weekday, there are over 100 well-balanced meals prepared for seniors, in a small kitchen designed more as a snack-shack.
Claremont police arrived minutes after a motion detection alarm and saw a man walking away from the store carrying a bag containing a drywall saw, a dust mask and gloves. He was arrested after a brief struggle.

Javier Sanchez, a 26-year-old transient, was arrested about an hour after a witness saw him committing the lewd act just before 3 p.m., according to Sgt. Robert Ewing of the Claremont Police Department.
If things go as planned, Claremonter Beth Boos will soon be breathing easy.
The longtime Claremont resident and beloved piano teacher was recently approved for a double-lung transplant at UCLA, and her friends have created a Go Fund Me page to help defray the significant medical costs that will not be covered by her health insurance.
New housing unit allocations from the state were unveiled last month, and the city of Claremont was assigned more 1,600 units to plug into parcels around the city.
The units are the Real Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA), part of a city’s housing element, which demonstrates to the state that a city has the room to zone for a certain amount of housing units at varying income levels.
The Claremont Police Department has been awarded a $90,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a year-long enforcement and public awareness program.
The traffic safety program is intended to educate the public on safe roadway habits and deter people from violating traffic laws or practicing other unsafe behaviors that lead to injuries and fatalities.
Storytelling may just be world’s oldest profession. Sure, it’s been said there is another, but think of it this way: somebody had to tell someone else about the existence of that other, more carnal pursuit, and that person there was a storyteller.
That’s my story anyway.
I don't know about you, but I certainly did not expect this. We knew rain was coming and temperatures would drop to the 50s in Claremont. But at higher elevations in the San Gabriel Mountains, it not only snowed a few inches, the snow level reached around 4500 feet. Even Baldy Village received a little of the white stuff. This photo was taken hovering over the Village at sunset. The fast moving storm blew through the area quickly, but it did leave 4-6 inches of snow by Thursday morning. Expect partly sunny skies with high temperatures in the 60s. The weekend is shaping up to be a perfect sunny day to be outdoors, with temperatures around 70. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
The Kiwanis Club of Claremont’s annual pop-up See’s Candy store is open every day, except Thanksgiving, until December 24.
The temporary store, at the former Hibbard dealership at 191 S. Indian Hill Blvd., Claremont, is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays noon to 5 p.m.
The store is staffed entirely by volunteers from the Claremont Kiwanis Club.
Looking west over the Wilderness Park and Claraboya, you might think summer will never end. But it's probably safe to say after high temperatures Monday reached the upper 80s, our summer-like weather will move on as a cold front (by Southern California standards) arrives Wednesday, dropping temperatures by over 30 degrees. Tuesday will be nice with highs around 70 early on, but clouds will thicken and rain will drop as the afternoon turns to evening. The rain will continue into Wednesday, with temperatures topping out around 57. Lows will be in the 40s. Don't be surprised if we see a thunderstorm or two. The good news is the sun will return by the weekend, with clear skies and daytime temperatures around 70. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
