National Pancake Day is upon us

Posted By on Tue, Feb 23, 2010 at 3:22 PM

We've received several emails in anticipation of this, and this day has finally arrived: free pancakes, y'all.

IHOP locations around the country are giving away free short stacks — three buttermilk pancakes — in honor of National Pancake Day (a day I'm pretty sure was arbitrarily created by IHOP. I suppose as the international pancake house, they have the authority to do such things). But don't be a freeloader: IHOP is also asking for donations to the Children's Miracle Network, and donations from the New Orleans stores will go to the CMN program at Children's Hospital.

And it keeps getting better. For those who enjoy their free-ish pancakes at the new Downtown location (833 Canal St.), you also get to hang out with Miss New Orleans (who may or may not have a name), who will be there with "other beauty queens." Because when I think of beauty queens, the first thing I think of is stacks of buttery carb discs.

Here's the other nearby IHOP locations: 12150 I-10 Service Rd., 151 Westbank Expressway, Gretna; 1719 Manhattan Blvd., Harvey; 3400 South I-10 Service Road W., Metairie; 3400 Williams Blvd., Kenner; 61101 Airport Rd., Slidell.
