Paddle for Pancakes this Saturday

Not much could get me out in the waters at Mission Bay—I'm from Hawaii so unless the aqua is topaz-blue and 70 degrees, I ain't dippin' one single toe in it. But, dangle a stack of pancakes—dripping with that wondrous amalgamation of syrup and butter—in front of my eyes and I'll brave the current surrounding that industrial area anyday. Even better that I can put a nice sturdy kayak between me and the drink at the Paddle for Pancakes event this Saturday. Start at the boathouse at Mission Creek Sports Park at 9:30 a.m., where you'll get on-land instuction for kayak maneuvering and safety. Then you'll put your new skills to good use on a guided tour of the Mission Bay shores before docking at The Ramp for brunch—which, you'd better believe, is included in your $79 event fee. So, eat up. Get that syrup-butter cocktail flowing. By the time you paddle back to home base, you'll still be calorie deficient anyway.
