When traveling the open road it’s important to grab a snack in order to maintain driving alertness level.

I’m not talking about a SlimJim or a can of Vienna sausages and a cracker here.  Rather, a big stack of buttermilk pancakes augmented with some eggs, link sausage, bacon, fried potatoes, cat head biscuits smothered in gravy and a large glass of OJ.

Fortunately, today is flap-jack-pot at IHOP restaurants where any guest can request a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes until 10pm tonight.  Why?  It’s IHOP National Pancake Day.  The day dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent.  Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products… hence the name Pancake Tuesday.  As part of the IHOP event, patrons are invited to make a donation to Shriners Hospitals for Children which last year the benefit raised $1.5 million nationwide.

Ride, drive or walk in for your free pancakes and help contribute to a good cause.
