It’s National Pancake Day.
And for International House Of Pancakes (IHOP), that means free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
Memphis-area IHOP stores will offer each guest a gratuitous stack from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and in return, diners will be asked to leave a voluntary donation to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals programs at Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center.
This is IHOP’s eighth consecutive year with this free pancake promotion. The California-based restaurant chain has set $3 million as its nationwide goal in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and other local charities.
