Free pancakes Tuesday
Tomorrow is National Pancake Day, and to be perfectly honest, I don't much care. Not that I have anything against pancakes. It's the obscure commemorative days I can do without.
But I've decided National Pancake Day is worth a mention for this reason: Participating IHOPs are serving free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes all day Tuesday, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
That's right. You pay nothing. Nada. Zip.
Unless the guilt gets to you.
The Pancake Day promotion is a charity fund-raiser. Patrons will be asked to make a donation to to a children's charity. Money raised in the Baltimore area will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
You can always tell your server you gave at the office. But heck, it's for a good cause. And you're saving all that dough -- batter? -- you would have spent on pancakes.
