**Don't Forget FREE IHOP Pancakes tomorrow.

This is a bit early, but I will post it before I forget. IHOP is celebrating National Pancake Day on February 23, 2010 by offering a free short stack.

This is what their website says: "Join IHOP to celebrate National Pancake Day on Tuesday, February 23, 2010. From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., we'll give you one free short stack (three) of our famous buttermilk pancakes. (There is a limit of one free short stack per guest) All we ask is that you consider making a donation to support local children's hospitals through Children's Miracle Network, or other local charities."

The small print reads "The offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last and is not valid with any other offer, special coupon or discount."

So, mark your calendars! But be warned-never underestimate the power of the word FREE! When Denny's did a similar promotion last year, I went there a half hour before it started, had to park a mile away walk through deep snow with 3 kids in tow only to find a line that reached about a half mile or so long that was estimated to take 5 hours to take 4-5 hours to get served. I turned around, went to Perkins, paid way too much for breakfast, then watched the news later and saw that many people in the line never got food as it ran out! It was nuts-so prepare for lines! I will still attempt it this time! I cannot resist the word free...
