Celebrate National Pancake Day today, March 4, with free pancakes at International House of Pancakes. National Pancake Day 2014, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday and Shrove Tuesday all fall on the same day this year—Tuesday, March 4. What's the chance of that happening? Time Business & Money on Monday, March 3, announced participating IHOP restaurants are giving away free pancakes—one complimentary short stack per guest—on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The Free Pancakes Day at IHOP restaurants is an annual event that was created in 2006 to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and local charities. Since the program began, IHOP has raised $13 million for charities with its National Pancake Day promotions, according to International Business Times on Monday, March 3.

Even though they'll be serving free pancakes at around 1500 IHOP restaurants this year, don't be surprised if you have to wait in line to get a seat. Pancake lovers wait all year for free pancakes at IHOP. All they ask in return for the free pancakes, is for guests to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities.

So, get up early and drive to your local IHOP Restaurant for a free one-stack plate of buttermilk pancakes today. If you can't make it in for breakfast or lunch, there's always pancakes for supper at IHOP! Looking for the IHOP restaurant closest to you? Check here for a list of local IHOP locations.
