Did someone say FREE PANCAKES?!? For the eighth year in a row, free short stacks of IHOP's famous buttermilk pancakes will be offered up in an effort to increase awareness and donations for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.

National Pancake Day 2012 was IHOP’s largest one-day event in the company’s 54-year history.

The goal of this years annual tradition is to raise $3 million, with an even larger effort to bring more than $13 million to the table for those in need. (Interesting fact: All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2012 would create a stack nearly 16 miles high. That's a lot of pancakes!)

WHEN:             TUESDAY, February 5, 2013, 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.

WHERE:           Participating IHOP restaurants.
