Today is National Pancake Day at IHOP

(Torin Halsey/AP)

Show up at an International House of Pancakes today and get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. The showing up is the easy part; the challenge is determining how long you're willing to wait for a stack of three pancakes. National Pancake Day guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. With 45 IHOP locations within 20 miles of Washington, let's not all clog the Columbia Heights location.

(Don't feel like waiting at all? These pancakes are better than IHOP's.)
