Berry-Licious Pancake to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Cure

Berry-Licious Pancake to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Cure

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and a popular eatery has created a special pancake to help raise money for a cure.

Hash House a Go Go created a 'cake for a cure made with berries that some studies have suggested have cancer-fighting phytochemicals, including raspberries, cranberries and strawberries. The pancakes also have cherries and pomegranates which are high in antioxidants.

The restaurant will donate $1 from the sale of every 'cake for the cure through the entire month of October to a group of Las Vegans who will be walking in a breast cancer fundraising walk.

"It's great to be able to assist Las Vegans participating in Susan G. Komen's 3-Day walk with our very berry-licious 'Cake for the Cure pancake," said Jim Rees, owner of Hash House A Go Go. "Our Chef created a delicious and health-conscious pancake for everyone to enjoy."

City Council Tables Food Truck Buffer Zone

City Council Tables Food Truck Buffer Zone

The Las Vegas City Council voted to table an ordinance that would have restricted where food trucks could set up within city limits.

Food truck operators protested against the proposal at Wednesday's city council meeting. Restaurant owners had lobbied to create a buffer zone, which would have restricted food trucks from parking within 800 feet of a restaurant.

In July, the city council's recommending committee approved a 300-foot buffer zone. During Wednesday's meeting, the city council could not agree on a separation distance so the decision was tabled.

Food truck owners say they've received a lot of support for their efforts to stop the buffer zone.

"Look at the other big cities around the country,  they are doing the same thing we are doing. We revitalize areas that don't have the means to do it themselves," food truck owner Robert Wilkinson said.

New Downtown Denny's to Include Wedding Chapel

 

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Denny's says its newest 24-hour diner in Las Vegas will feature a full bar and a wedding chapel.

The restaurant announced Thursday that it plans to open a flagship diner by the end of the year in downtown Las Vegas' Neonopolis shopping complex.

Denny's CEO John Miller says Las Vegas is ideal for the one-of-a-kind restaurant because it operates on the same 24-hour schedule as the diner itself.

The 6,400-square-foot eatery will include an interactive photo booth where patrons can take their photos with Vegas-themed props and share them on social media sites. The restaurant will also offer a range of wedding packages at its on-site chapel, some including wedding cakes made of Denny's Pancake Puppies.

The Denny's chain includes more than 1,680 restaurants, including two locations on the Strip.
