Better Late than Never: Free Pancakes at IHOP

Categories: Leftovers
IHOP is serving up free short stacks until 10 p.m. today in honor of National Pancake Day.

According to the folks at IHOP (and why would they lie?), “National Pancake 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, or Shrove Tuesday.”

Of course, Fat Tuesday was last week, but apparently IHOP didn’t want you to get distracted from Super Tuesday, so the festivities were postponed till today. Here’s hoping you didn’t give up dairy for Lent. – Keith Plocek
