I just finished my July 4th breakfast in Santa Fe. On the Plaza. But not at one of my favorite restaurants.
This time, I ate with thousands of other people at the 38th annual Pancakes on the Plaza event sponsored by the Rotary Club of Santa Fe.
It was fun, it was delicious, it was obviously a very local event, and it’s my new favorite July 4th tradition. For $7 I got to contribute to a good cause and I got to sit in the grass near the obelisk in the Plaza and eat two plate-sized pancakes topped with maple syrup and strawberries, with a bit of fried ham on the side.
New Mexico is a great place to spend the 4th of July. Now that I’m done here, I’m headed to Logan to help with their July 4th celebration, which actually starts tomorrow.
