Free pancakes at IHOP on Fat Tuesday

The free food bandwagon rolls on, with IHOP getting into the act tomorrow.

As with free pancakes!

The International House of Pancakes, located in Racine at 5800 Durand Ave., at Regency Mall, will give away a free short stack of three buttermilk pancakes in honor of Fat Tuesday (the last day before the Catholic observance of Lent), in return for a donation for children's hospitals through the Children's Miracle Network. The free stack will be offered from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. More details here.

Since the IHOP fund-raiser began in 2006, the company has raised almost $2 million for children’s charities. In 2008, IHOP served 1.5 million free pancakes, equal to a stack 12 miles high.

In January, Starbucks gave away free coffee to customers willing to join one of President Barack Obama's community service corps; earlier this month Denny's gave away free breakfasts as a marketing effort.
