SHROVE TUESDAY - Fat Tuesday. Mardi Gras. Don't care what you call it, all I know is that it means free pancakes tomorrow. Now I know that the last week in February is National Pancake Week. The entire month of February is also National Hot Breakfast Month. But whenever it's "Shrove Tuesday" it also makes that day International Pancake Day. And that means IHOP is giving away free pancakes tomorrow (February 24th). I love how that all works.
From 7 AM to 10 PM IHOP will give you one free short stack (three) of their famous buttermilk pancakes. One free stack to a customer until they run out. This applies to dine in only and is not valid with any other offers. Though the pancakes are free, IHOP is asking that you consider making a donation to support local children's hospitals through Childrens Miracle Network or other local charities. For more information go here. I'm sure the lines will be just as long at your local IHOP as they were when Denny's gave away free Grand Slams!
FREE SUBS TOO - Not a breakfast person? How about a free sub sandwich from Quizno's? They have a deal on their website where if you register they will send you a coupon for a free sub sandwich. Now registering does enter you into their marketing database, but they do offer a way to opt out of all the marketing stuff. To get your free coupon go here and be part of the million sub sandwiches Quizno's is planning on giving away.
WATCHMEN - And for those of you wondering what Mr. L and I took to the Oscar party last night? Why Night Owl Coffee of course, straight from the new Watchmen movie (out March 6th). To find out more go here.
