Here's a deal to flip over: Free pancakes!
Today, International House of Pancakes will celebrate National Pancake Day by offering a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to all customers. The free pancakes will be available at all participating IHOPs from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
In return, patrons may make voluntary donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, the event's official charity.
Last year, IHOP hosted a similar National Pancake Day party and served about 4 million free pancakes. If added together, all those "short stacks" would be nearly 16 miles tall. During the 2012 event, customers donated more than $3 million to children's charities.
IHOP hopes to reach that goal again. To find a participating IHOP near you, click on www.ihoppancakeday.com.
