Tuesday is National Pancake Day and to celebrate, the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is offering every person in America a free short stack of its signature buttermilk pancakes for free, from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.
The popular breakfast restaurant has celebrated National Pancake Day since 2006 and in the past seven years has raised nearly $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
The pancakes are technically free, however IHOP goers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities, IHOP's website says.
Last year, its National Pancake Day efforts raised more $3 million for the hospital system.
There are a number of IHOPS in the Milwaukee area. Click here for a list of area IHOPS.
