The Duluth Lions Club Pancake Day is full of community, fun and flapjacks! It's a great way to raise money for local programs, but it wouldn't be complete without volunteer Jim Pratt.

Pratt, also known as Coffee Man, has been brining smiles to Pancake Day for years. You'd recognize him from his backpack coffee dispenser that makes him a java superhero! He really stands out, however, when he takes out his harmonica and sings the Pancake Day Blues.

This year Pratt added a special verse for WDIO's Good Morning Northland Anchor Brittany Falkers. We can't wait to hear what he comes up with next year!
