The first Mexia Blackcat football home game of the season – Friday, Sept. 4, this year – means it’s time for the Double Whammy: a pancake breakfast and dinner, hosted by the Mexia Lions Club.
The idea is to get together with friends or co-workers for hot, fresh pancakes, breakfast sausage, juice or coffee at the Lions Den, on Paris Street at Commerce, in Mexia. The morning session is open 6:30-9:30 a.m. There are plenty of tables to eat at the Lions den, but take-out orders are welcome, too.
Dine in or take out, it’s $5 a plate.
Then, in the evening, mom can take a break from cooking, and the whole family can stop by the Lions Den, 4:40-6:30 p.m. to have a pancake dinner before going to watch the Blackcats play.
