Ah, IHOP. My dad's favorite restaurant. And it's offering a short stack (three pancakes) for free on Tuesday, February 23. All day! 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
They are raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, so get your free stack and make a donation. They're hoping to raise $1.75 million this year.
According to the Children's Miracle Network, Pancake Day is also Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras. They say National Pancake Day dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products… hence the name Pancake Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday."
Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals. Each year the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.
This is IHOP's 5th International Pancake Day, and 1,400 locations will participate. Find an IHOP near you.
