Found in a Book: Restaurant Gift Certificate


Of all the things that have drifted to me from the pages of a book, hot fluffy pancakes are the most welcome. Can you imagine the time I would save listing, selling and packing books, if they just fed me directly?

Unfortunately these hot fluffy pancakes from "Sytje's Pannekoeken Huis" are waiting for me in Rochester, Minnesota. Since I'm not likely to make it out that way anytime soon, I'm offering this ticket to a North Star state resident for merely the price of an SASE (send an e-mail and I'll give you my mailing address).

Doubly unfortunate the chain of "Dutch Family Cooking Restaurants" has since gone out of business.
