Hello fellow pancake enthusiasts,

As you’re well aware, International Pancake Day is on March 8th (always taking place on another coveted holiday, Fat Tuesday)!  By now you’ve dusted off your pancake suit,  hung blueberry lights wall to wall and are ready to make the big day plans.  Snooze is here to help.

On March 8th, Snooze once again hosts International Pancake Day.  All day (6:30a til 2:30p) and at every Snooze, arrive and feel the magic as you receive a list of over one dozen pancakes opportunities.  Take that compilation and let the world be your pancake.  Choose one, choose 30, each crafted in a flight size portion to further your taste buds search for Nirvana.  Pineapple Upside Down, Elvis, Peppermint Patties, sweet, savory, avant garde… enlightenment?

And as they say, every time a pancakes enjoyed, a garden gets its seed.  Know that with every pancake you feast upon, proceeds for the day go towards building, expanding and supporting Denver Urban Gardens and Harvest Farms in Ft Collins.

As you’ve always believed, eating pancakes can make a difference!  We, the pancake pushers, eagerly await this day and look forward, as always, to serving you.
