FREE pancakes and you help out the kids at the same time! This is just a win win if you ask me.

IHOP

Today (Tuesday, March 7th) is National Pancake Day and as a result IHOP has teamed up with the Children's Miracle Network to offer everyone FREE SHORT STACKS!!

They are calling it "Pancakes with a Purpose" and participating locations all across the country, but most importantly, right here in the Capital Region are offering free short stacks of IHOPS world famous buttermilk pancakes.

While technically the shorts stakes are free the "Purpose" today is to raise funds for the Children's Miracle Network who work tirelessly to help children battling critical illnesses all across the country and especially right here locally. So if you do go get your FREE pancakes today please don't forget to donate what you can for the kids.

The FREE short stacks will be available today at all participating IHOP location (which you can find here) from 7am to 7pm with some locations even serving until 10pm!

According to News10:

Diners at the IHOP location in Clifton Park on Tuesday morning will get an extra fun bonus. Local firefighters will be helping out and offering tours of some very cool fire trucks.
