IHOP - FREE Pancakes tomorrow!
Tuesday February 24th - known also as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras... and National Pancake Day, which 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.
To celebrate Pancake Day, IHOP is offering one free short stack (three) of their buttermilk pancakes. All they ask is that you consider making a donation to suport the local children's hospitals through the Children's Miracle Network , or other local charities.
