The fare is simple - waffles, with butter (no margarine thank you very much Mayo clinic) and (cheap, sugary) syrup. If you would prefer real maple syrup, bring your own or hope someone else does. If you want to lard down your waffles with chocolate chips and whipped cream, like the grandkids, bring your own or hope someone else does. If you prefer healthy mounds of fresh fruit smothered in fat free Greek yogurt on your waffle, bring your own or hope someone else does.
These events are popular, and Rick's waffle iron is small, so reservations are suggested. Without one, you might end up with no waffles, just your own fresh fruit, whipped cream, and maple syrup. Even so, you could still watch Rick waffle, and probably get him to say some pretty silly things while he's doing it.
Donations to cover the cost of the food are accepted, so long as they don't total any more than the cost of the food - this is NOT a fundraising event (it is, however, a fun raising event). Rick doesn't need to fund raise, because he doesn't accept campaign donations greater than two cents per person. Last we checked - two cents doesn't buy a lot of food ... . If the kitty is overflowing after the dry grocer's bill is paid we make a donation to a local food bank, a little something for the people who don't fill their bellies quite so often as we do.
A word to the wise. Rick's waffles are NOT vegan. Nor are they gluten free. If you would like to bring your own waffle batter, be it vegan, gluten free, halal, organic, or whatever tickles your fancy, Rick will be glad to put some of it in his waffle iron and heat it up. His one and only waffle iron, which will also be used to cook all the other waffles, and might contain a wee bit o' residue from doing so.
