IHOP Free Pancake Day
Tuesday, March 7, 7 a.m.–7 p.m.
New York City
How long has it been since you've stepped foot inside the most quintessential of American diners? Probably pretty long. Break that hiatus and head to the International House of Pancakes on Tuesday for more than just a short stack. These pancakes have a purpose—in exchange for a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes, IHOP will be collecting money for one of their charitable partners, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Think there are no IHOPs in New York? Think again.
