Free Pancake Day at IHOP

IHOP is giving a FREE shortstack of pancakes to each guest today from 7:00am-10pm.
Make sure you leave a donation for the Children's Miracle Network hospitals and other designated local charities. The goal is to raise $2.3 million

National Pancake Day normally takes place on Shrove Tuesday; but they wanted to create some buzz and excitement prior to Shrove Tuesday.
What is Shrove Tuesday? It is a day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of fast and prayer called Lent. It is also known as pancake day because it was considered to be a last feast with ingredients such as sugar, eggs, fat which was restricted during fasting.

My kids would love to eat pancakes for dinner; but don't think I want to be waiting forever in a line that I'm anticipating will be very long. Enjoy the free pancakes for those who take advantage of this good deal and good cause.
