CMN Pancake Day!

Tuesday is Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants.

IHOP will serve free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes this morning, while encouraging those enjoying them to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network.

Here in Eastern Carolina, that benefits University Health Systems Children's Hospital, which is near and dear to our hearts. We host the telethon every June.

You can get the free flapjacks Tuesday from 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.

    I think it all depends on when you go, as far as the rudeness. I typically goto the one in greenville in the evenings (between 8-10pm) when they have this and its mostly young people(Teens and people in there early 20s) and many times they are rude and loud talking etc. So if you go earlier I expect you will not have this problem. Also keep in mind that Greenville has a large college base so expect to see a lot of college students if you go in the evening as they tend to show up in carloads.

    Eating pancakes, like most things in life, is only harmful if you do it in excess. Personally, 3 times a week I make whole wheat chocolate chip pancakes (only 2) with REAL syrup (not high fructose corn syrup) and Vegan butter (which tastes just like the real stuff, but contains the good fats and not saturated fat) as a part of my new healthy diet...just dont go to IHOP and eat 8 pancakes with tons of syrup and butter and you should be good...

    I really don't get the selfish mentality of some ppl. Really, harming your health with pancakes? Feeling pressured to donate? It could be 'you' one day needing someone to bail you out of burdening financial assistance stemming from health issues. Stop living you 'your' bubble ppl.

    We just returned from IHOP, where we took advantage of their offer. We were seated at a booth, they took our drink order. There was a placard on the table stating the offer. There was no pressuring by the employees at all. It was all soft sell, low key. It was 0700 when we arrived, and the restaurant had a few patron, but no "rude crowd" as Neal claims would be there. He claim of "pressured to make a donation never happened". Speak from fact, Neal, not from ignorance.

    How can eating pancakes harm your health? I could see if it was pork sausage or pork bacon or something of that nature but these are just pancakes, unless I am missing something.

    What is free about this offer when one is pressured to make a donation to a charity? It is not worth fighting the rude crowd that will most likely show up, just to eat some pancakes. I will send a donation to my favorite charity, but will let the others be pressured to pay for the additional costs associated with this offer, such as a side item and/or beverage to wash down the meal.

    Dave, have you ever thought of just giving a donation? Quit whining all the time. The CMN is an outstanding organization that ANYONE can give to at ANYTIME --- pancakes or not!

    Helping kids is good but harming your health to do so? It's not worth it!
