Breakfast for dinner is a good thing. And so is helping out charities that help out children.
Next week, Child Start, a group that each year provides hats and mittens to 1,200 local children, is putting on an event that will smartly combine the two.
The event is called, appropriately, Breakfast for Dinner, and it offers attendees a buffet of breakfast items donated by local restaurants. Admission to the event is a set of one new hat and mittens or $5.
On the menu: Public at the Brickyard’s corned beef hash, Twelve’s smoked salmon, Riverside Cafe’s biscuits and gravy, Birds on the Roof’s duck hash and crepes, Cow and Sow Deli’s banana muffins and Truffles’ yogurt parfaits. Reverie Coffee Roasters will donate coffee, Premier Food Services will donate juice cups, and the event also will offer a mimosa bar.
It’s from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13, at the Boathouse, 515 S. Wichita St. It’s a come-and-go event that also will include a story time and music from the Robinson eighth grade string ensemble, Carson Mac, Aaron Lee Martin and Eric Shumaker.
