The USS Red Oak Victory will be serving up pancakes and the Blue Angels at the ship’s next Pancake Breakfast, which falls on the last day of San Francisco Fleet Week on Sun., Oct. 10.
Breakfast—cooked on a bonafide WWII ship’s galley—starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. and includes pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, apple slices, coffee and orange juice on the ship’s deck. As an extra treat that morning, the Blue Angels will fly over the ship as they head to the Fleet Week Airshow above San Francisco Bay, according to ship personnel.
Other plans for the Pancake Breakfast that Sunday include swinging 1940’s musical entertainment by The Rossmoor Big Band and stories from Navy veterans.
“Arrive early to reserve your seat with the best view of the Fleet Week action on the Bay,” advised ship personnel in a statement.
Tickets to the Pancake Breakfast are $12 for adults and $5 for children 8 and under. A limited number of same-day docent-guided tours of the ship are available at a discount and visitors can stick around for the Fleet Week Airshow later that day (the ship will be open until 4 p.m.).
