Annual Lions Club pancake day is Thursday

FOODThe 56th annual Downtown Lions Club pancake day, an event that attracts about 2,000 people to Century II’s Exhibition Hall for all-you-can-eat pancakes plus sausage and coffee, is schedule for 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.

Tickets are $6 in advance by calling 316-264-1610 and are available at the door. Money raised goes toward supporting free and assisted child care programs at the YMCA.

I went a few years ago, and it was delicious, though I’m still trying to wash the aroma of freshly flipped pancakes out of my clothes.
