National Pancake Day at IHOP

pancakesShrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Day) isn't until March 8, but IHOP National Pancake Day is tomorrow, March 1.

From 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., receive one complimentary short stack (dine-in only, etc. etc.)

In return for the free flapjacks, donate something to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities.

According to its website, "IHOP began its National Pancake Day in 2006, and since then, has raised $5.35 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities and given away more than 10.1 million buttermilk pancakes." 

Thanks for the tip, Eli!

Speaking of Pancake Day:

I Googled up a handful of March 8 pancake dinners at various churches and lodges around town, but I wasn't sure which ones were open to the public. If you know of a pancake dinner that's open to the public, or have any thoughts to share about Shrove Tuesday pancake dinners, I'd love to hear about them.

And where do people go for good pancakes these days?
