Free Pancakes at IHOP -- and Miss Florida, Too

Tomorrow is National Pancake Day, and to mark the occasion, more than 1,400 IHOP restaurants throughout the country are inviting guests to enjoy a free short stack of its signature buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. In return, IHOP is asking local customers to donate what they would have paid for the free pancakes (or more) to the Children's Miracle Network at Miami Children's Hospital Foundation in their community.

This is the fifth year that IHOP has been involved in pancake philanthropy; the company is hoping to raise $1.75 million to add to the $3.25 million generated thus far. That's a lot of flapjacks (something we at New Times know a little about).

If a stack of buttery, syrup-dappled flapjacks isn't enough to get you

going in the morning, Miss Florida USA 2010 Megan Clementi will be

flipping pancakes and greeting guests at the IHOP at Sunset & 97th

Avenue in Miami (9696 W Sunrise Drive) from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Our

guess is that she'll be doing more greeting than cooking, which is

probably a good thing.
