Be a part of the pancake pandemonium as IHOP serves up FREE pancakes in celebration of National Pancake Day on February 24, 2009, at IHOP restaurants across the country.
From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., families and friends can enjoy a free short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes, and in turn, make a donation to IHOP’s national charity partner, Children’s Miracle Network, which helps improve the lives of children at the 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals nationwide. One hundred percent of the funds raised locally will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in the area.
National Pancake Day is a centuries-old tradition on the day before Lent, also known as “Shrove Tuesday” and Mardi Gras. For centuries, the English have “flipped” for pancakes on this day with rich lore and colorful events including pancake races. On February 24, IHOP will bring back this beloved tradition with its third National Pancake Day Celebration. After all, what could be more enjoyable (and delicious!) than eating free pancakes and supporting the community at the same time?
A great offer like this does have some rules - there is a limit of one free short stack per guest, and the offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last, and is not valid with any other offer, special, coupon or discount."
