  • Free Pancakes 2/24!

    KUSA - It's not the traditional way to celebrate Fat Tuesday, but many people probably wouldn't turn down free pancakes.

    From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, IHOP, also known as the International House of Pancakes, will serve short stacks in exchange for a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. Like the paczki fried dough enjoyed by the Polish on Fat Tuesday, the English herald the beginning of fasting during Lent by eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, according to the chain.

    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.
