Red Velvet Pancakes at Babycakes

Pretty in pink and pleasing to the palette are the red-velvet pancakes at Babycakes Café, a compelling reason to get out of bed early this weekend. The pancakes are topped with whipped cream and chocolate crumbles, and served with cream cheese syrup. In addition to traditional favorites, consider S’more, rocky road, carrot cake and lemon ricotta pancakes. By the time you’re done, you won’t know if it’s breakfast time or dessert time—you’ll just be very happy. $5.75 for a short stack, $9 for a full stack, 2400 N. Buffalo Drive, 541-6708,

A Happy Detour

By Michael T. Toole

Boulder City is all too often regarded as just that little town on the way to Hoover Dam, a gas-tank fill-up and little else for those in a hurry. Growing up in Las Vegas during the ’70s, I heard Boulder City referred to as “Mayberry” (do I have to explain the reference?), and that was good or bad depending on your perception. As I got older, my appreciation grew for the city’s playful insouciance to modern times. It’s refreshing that Boulder Bowl is a bowling alley that is not attached to a casino.
