Just what you’ve been waiting for it’s….Pancake Week! Why are we getting all giddy over this? Well, one of our favorite kiddie (and grownup) places is getting ready to celebrate both, and it always brightens up the slow mid-winter food scene. From Monday the 13th to Saturday the 18th, head on over to The Pop Shop in Collingswood, to grab a dozen varieties of pancakes (they will serve them all day). If that’s not enough, it’s soon to be followed by… Dr. Seuss Week (February 27-March 2nd) ! And we like Dr. Seuss at the good ol’ Shop, because they’re the only ones we know that offer a “Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast” to celebrate Theo G.’s birthday…as well as reading Dr. Seuss stories, pajama party dinners, and a menu that consists of specials like “Daisyhead Maize Burgers” or “Pink Yink Ink Drink”. (By the way, if you like what you see in that photo above, you have to check out the link to this talented artist’s food art is amazing!)
“Hey wait!” You ask, “Isn’t this the weekend before Valentine’s Day? Where’s the Valentine stuff? Huh? ” Well, John did a little post earlier in the week chock full of Valantine-y things to do: restaurant specials, cooking classes,etc. If you missed it, you can check it all out here.
You say that pancakes and Dr. Seuss don’t do it for you, and that you’re wearing black for the big Love Day? Well, we even have a few things for you, too: Saturday is the Winter Eagle Festival and Chili Bowl at the Mauricetown Fire Hall in Mauricetown.
Yup, sorry, that’s all the non V-Day stuff we have for the weekend…. Of course you could go to a non-Valentine cooking class:
Tonight: Sushi Showcase! at Kitchen Kapers in Moorestown.
Saturday: Gluten-Free on the Go at Sur La Table in Marlton, Best of Class: Special Dinner at Viking Cooking School , Harrah’s in Atlantic City.
Sunday: Kids in the Kitchen: Delicious Desserts at Kitchen Kapers.
