The Agenda: Free Pancakes, Transplanted Indian & Wine Dinners

The line is probably just beginning to form at Monk’s Cafe for Russian River and Pliny the Younger madness. It’s not too late to come down with a cold or sudden intestinal distress and head on over .

IndeBlue in Collingswood reopens on Tuesday, March 1st across the street from its original location in the former Blackbird Dining Establishment.

Tuesday is National Pancake Day and IHOP is offering a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7am to 10pm. In exchange diners are asked to make a donation to support The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Wednesday is day three of duck week at Matyson, enjoy duck four ways.

Meritage gets back to its wine roots on Thursday with a four-course French wine dinner.
