Celebrate your birthday month with free brunch

Share

There may or may not be any such thing as a free lunch, but the West Linn Adult Community Center guarantees there is such a thing as a free brunch — for everyone. Just come to the WLACC at noon on the first Wednesday of your birthday month and you’ll be treated to a tasty meal.by: SUBMITTED - Marlene Rickett proudly displays August's birthday brunch she helped prepare for the West Linn Adult Community Center.

August’s brunch consisted of strata, a layered breakfast casserole containing eggs, sausage, cranberries, cheese and apples, all on top of bread cubes.

This is not a brunch for the faint of heart nor is it probably recommended by the American Heart Association. But on your birthday month, throw caution to the wind and treat yourself to something that just tastes great.

Along with the strata, we served a variety of pastries, beets and a fruit platter of sliced cantaloupe, sliced strawberries and sliced bananas.

And, of course, there was birthday cake for dessert along with apple pie and cupcakes.

If you want to live on the wild side, and a brunch sounds appealing even though it’s not your birthday month, you can pay $3 and still savor the entire meal.

It’s the best meal-deal in town. And it happens on the first Wednesday of every month. So if your birthday is in September, we’ll see you on the 5th, no money needed, and only six pieces of photo ID (only kidding).

Here are the upcoming week’s other activities. Please call the WLACC at 503-557-4704 for specific times and possible fees.
