IHOP Doing The Free Pancake Thing Again Today

Free food is often the best food.

Free food is often the best food.

Between Groundhog Day and the Super Bowl, you’re probably all celebrated out right now. But don’t forget that it’s National Pancake Day today, which means you have a right to some free food at IHOP.

Once again, the restaurant chain is commemorating the day we remember all of our nation’s fallen pancakes by offering a free short stack of its buttermilk pancakes to all customers.

In return, IHOP is asking customers to donate a short stack of cash to the Children’s Miracle Network. The company has raised more than $10 million for charity since 2006 with this annual event, and aims to add $3 million more to that total today.
