Free pancakes at IHOP on Tuesday

Tuesday (Feb.24) is National Pancake Day and IHOP Restaurants are giving away free pancakes.
Pancake Tuesday is a tradition that heralds the beginning of fasting during Lent. Long ago, the English had strict rules the 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.
For every short stack of pancakes served on Tuesday, IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital.  Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Lexington store at 2306 Palumbo Drive. Call  (859) 269-0844 or go to  www.ihoppancakeday.com.
