Here are the details:
When? July 4, 2016 7:30-9:30 AM.
Where? LA PLANCHA GRILL at La Tienda.
Cost? $6 per plate. $5.50 if you bring your own mug.
Kids under 6 free. Cash only.
Menu? 2 Pancakes, 2 Sausage Patties, Watermelon Slice, Coffee, Tea, and Orange Juice.
The breakfast will be run by the staff of La Plancha Grill and by volunteers from Eldorado/285 Recycles. In keeping with the latter group’s recycling and composting goals this year’s breakfast will be a “zero waste” event. The group will compost all food leftovers and paper waste and will not use plastic
implements or decorations. Guests are asked to bring their own mugs for hot drinks, but compostable paper cups will be available.
Generous contributions from the Eldorado Supermart, Las Chivas Coffee, La Plancha Grill, and La Tienda make this event possible.
