Free Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday

Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, or National Pancake Day is February 24th this year.

And from 7am to 10 pm that day, IHOP is again giving away pancakes to each “guest.” You can read the fine print, but the gist is one stack per person, and don’t use any other coupons.

A donation isn’t required, but they’ll remind you they’re collecting money for the Children’s Miracle Network. We wrote about the group in August when DQ had a giveaway for them:

Children’s Miracle Network, “a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals,” met the Better Business Bureau standard for Charity Accountability. According to the BBB, the organization’s 2005-2006 use of funds was: Programs: 90% Fund Raising: 4% Administrative: 5% Other Expenses: 1% — Blizzard Forecast for Lakeland Tomorrow

We’ll mention the event as we get closer to Mardi Gras, excuse me, Pancake Day, but we wanted to help you mark your calendar early.
