The free pancakes were always from IHOP.  But now, they are claiming that it's IHOP Free Pancake Day.  However you want to spin it, it's FREE PANCAKES!  And that is a pile of awesomeness.  Who doesn't like IHOP pancakes, right?  They are delicious.  And today only, until 7pm- you can get a free short stack of pancakes at IHOP.  I think you can even call ahead and order them, and just go pick them up.  Might be easier than waiting in the restaurant.

The idea is that people would take the amount that they would have spent and donate it to help children battling critical illnesses.  Flip it forward for kids.

Take some time tonight... your dinner plans have been made.  Pancakes for dinner!
