Buffalo Grove residents in search of a packzi fix don't have far to look. Deerfields Bakery is marking Paczki Day with 16 flavors of the popular pastry.
Paczkis, to some, are a last hurrah of sorts on Fat Tuesday (also called Mardi Gras or Paczki Day), which falls the day before the start of the Lenten season. Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting for Catholics.
At Deerfields Bakery, paczkis will come filled with custard, an assortment of fruits and even cookies 'n cream, among others.
For those who don't want to risk the possibility of empty bakery shelfs on Feb. 12, advance orders can be placed by phone at (847) 520-0068 or by fax at (847) 520-0135 until 1 p.m. Feb. 11.
