Pancake Breakfast at Tommy's

When: Sat., Jan. 1 2011

As if we need another excuse to pig out, here comes Tommy's with a doozy: an all-you-can-eat pancake chowdown with the proceeds going to a worthy cause! Yes, it's the 11th Annual Tommy's New Year's Day Pancake Breakfast, happening this morning in Coventry Village. All proceeds from the meal go to support Heights Arts, a nonprofit community organization fostering public arts appreciation. Apparently, the model works: Tommy's has raised $39,000 since the event launched in 2001. (That year, the funds went to help build the Coventry Arch at the intersection of Coventry Road and Euclid Avenue.) The breakfast is also a way to off-load unwanted gifts: Pancake-seekers are instructed to bring an "unwanted and unwrapped, but greatly appreciated" gift for a raffle, which also benefits the arts group. Volunteers will be serving the flapjacks and all the fixings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., while Ron the Flower Clown wows the kids with balloon creations. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. Tommy's is at 1824 Coventry Rd. in Cleveland Heights. Call 216-321-7757 for more information. Maund
