I have been working on producing SF’s first Pancake and Music benefit for the last 1.5 months and it’s finally this weekend! Friday night, guests will enjoy and dance to world musicians performing live. Coda will have their dinner menu available and guests can reserve a table in advance. On Saturday, we will serve organic, sustainable pancakes buffet-style while bands play on stage. Tickets are only $10 for each day and 100% of the sale goes to Doctor’s Without Borders, Pakistan. We really need volunteers to make this event successful. We need volunteers to flip pancakes and man the buffet station. If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible. More information: http://pancakefest.eventbrite.com/ This is a Club Dine In! event and I hope to see you there!
