The best day of the entire year is approaching.Â Aquabear Legion’s annual Pancake Breakfast is Sunday, January 29th at ARTS/WestÂ in Athens, Ohio! Last year we decided it made sense to involve the unbelievable local food community here in the Athens area with our fundraiser to help support unbelievable local music and the best day of the year became even better. ALL WEEK we will be spotlighting the local food producers and businesses we are working with this year. See you all at theÂ Aquabear Pancake BreakfastÂ on Sunday, January 29th from 1:00pm-4:00pm atÂ ARTS/West, 132 West State Street in Athens.
The Aquabear is very excited to top all the pancakes this Sunday with some Sticky Pete’s Maple Syrup from right here in Athens County! Sticky Pete’s can be found everywhere from Casa Nueva to the Easton Farmers Market in Columbus and it is fantastic. We could not ask for anything better to top our pancakes with. Now, Sticky Pete’s doesn’t have a website but our Athens ex-pat friend Susan Hilvert was involved with a project called TerraStories that traveled around meeting female farmers and food producers and ran across Laura Berry and Sticky Pete’s on the cross-region journey. TerraStories says this of Laura and Sticky Pete’s “She only sells her stuff locally, but her clout is nation-wide: Sticky Peteâ€™s has been repeatedly recognized by tastemakers as some of the best syrup on the market.”
