Today’s The Day You Can Get Free Pancakes At IHOP

nationpancake2It’s that time of year again: The day designated by IHOP as National Pancake Day. All you really need to know that it means you can get free pancakes today, for a good cause.

While maybe thought you’d missed the free flapjacks — considering last year’s event was in February — you’ve got the entire day today to get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes at your local IHOP.

And although the food is free of charge, IHOP asks that diners consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospital or another local charity.

The goal this year is to raise $3 million for the charity, after raising a total of $13 million total since it started handing out free pancakes in 2006.
