    2014 Pancake Day – 2nd March 2014


    We arrived at Pancake on the Rocks on March 2nd for our first ever CAC International Pancake Day Breakfast.

    The pancakes were thick and delicious and the jams and creams were really nice but NOT as good as the genuine Canadian maple syrup and mints which were epic!

    There were lots of great prizes in the raffle and we got to draw out some of the winning tickets with Mario, the Consul General.  We won a Canadian flag beach towel and some Maple cookies (biscuits).

    The restaurant was great and the toilets were really, really nice, very posh and tiled throughout (Oliver J)!

    The whole morning was really, really fun but we’re glad we arrived early as, as we were leaving, there was a massive queue/line up all the way up the stairs and into the street.  We look forward to next year’s event!

    Oh yes, as the picture shows, the Americans were not impressed! At 4:00am on 22 February 2014 we joined a fully packed Cheers Bar on George Street with about another 200 diehard Canadian Hockey Fans. For some, it was a very early morning; for others, it was a very late night. Whatever it took to get the fans out to support Canada, there were 200 fans chuckling and cheering at the American defeat.

    Yes it’s true, not only did Canada win Gold in both Mens and Womens (Ice) Hockey, we also won Gold in both Mens and Womens CURLING! Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as many fans watched the Curling, however, we are certain it was just as exciting as the hockey, at least for the Ozzies (they seem to love that sport). In any case, thank you John Lerner for organising a last minute event at the Hard Rock Café. With hundreds of Canadians and a few Swedish turning up, it was a night to remember (for the Canadians) and a night to forget (for the Swedish).

    This event has reached a maximum amount of registrations and is now closed. 

    Please note that this is a 'pay by cash only' at the tables when you order, so please ensure that you find a bank machine BEFORE you arrive to the venue. With 45 people attending, it is sure to be a GREAT time!

    We would also like to give a big thanks to Dave at "The Canadian Way" for sponsoring this event! See below to find our more about The Canadian Way!

To register for this event you MUST be a paying member and register for the event by no later than 12 March 2014. Tickets are limited and therefore it’s on a first come, first serve basis.
