Today is National Pancake Day, and IHOP is Giving Away Free Short Stacks
It's National Pancake Day. Sort of like when it was National Tater Tot Day at the Ore-Ida factory a while back. Actually, according to one website, February 28 is National Chocolate Soufflé Day and yesterday was Kahlua Day (can't believe I missed that). Everyday is something. (Heads up: Frozen Food Day is March 6).
What we like to see is someone big throwing their weight behind a "day." That lends it some credibility. Which is the case at IHOP, where today each guest can receive one short stack on the house. And, as you waddle out, you can donate a few bucks to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
The most amazing thing about this celebration was a "Celebrity Wake-Up Call." According to the IHOP website, you could have registered for a wake up call from a celebrity to remind you of the pancakes. Sadly, the sign-up period has closed. Oh well: Your short stack still awaits.
