Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Chattanooga introduces Pancakes at Puckett’s to Chattanooga-area honor roll students. Pancakes at Puckett’s is a new program just for kids that rewards their academic achievement.

Parents are encouraged to bring their child’s A's and B's report card (or snap a picture of it!) to Puckett’s for a free kid’s pancake breakfast to celebrate their hard work and success.

The idea was hatched a couple of years ago. Some Tennessee football fanatic had gotten wind that an Oklahoma player had documented his baptism to havoc inside Neyland Stadium. Offensive lineman Ty Darlington was part of that 2015 double-overtime slugfest against the Vols and, afterwards, remembered OU’s 34-27 win – after being down by 17 points earlier – was an absolute “dissertation” ...
