The Great Debate: When Is National Pancake Day®?

February 23, 2016

With the residents of every ROSS affordable housing apartment for rent in the dark about the official date, a few differing beliefs were discovered, ultimately giving rise to three distinct parties.

The Stack & Give Back Party: IHOP® National Pancake Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, by their Pancakes with Purpose event. “Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP restaurants have raised nearly $20 million to support charities in the communities in which they operate. On March 8, 2016, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., guests from around the world will celebrate the eleventh annual [IHOP] National Pancake Day at participating IHOP restaurants and enjoy one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.* In return for the free pancakes, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals©** or other designated local charities.”

Show your support and help IHOP reach their goal of $3.5 million by scarfing down a short stack and leaving a $5 charitable donation. When you do, you’ll receive a $5 coupon to use on your next visit!

The National Party: “The table is set, the batter is mixed, the griddle is hot and the butter and syrup are ready. This means you are ready for National Pancake Day. This food holiday is observed each year on September 26.”

The Progressive Party: For the residents of ROSS’ affordable housing apartments for rent, every morning will be a celebration of National Pancake Day when you’re able to whip up a batch of these savory pancakes and douse them with a hefty serving of syrup, all in your fully equipped kitchen!

As the debate continues, there’s still time for everyone to choose a side – although for our part, we’re going on the record to announce that we’re backing the only party ready to make progress by making National Pancake Day an everyday event: Go Progressives!!

When you’re ready to make an even more important decision – like finding a new apartment that you’ll love to call “home” – take a tour of ROSS’ affordable housing apartments for rent (after you’ve finished your pancakes, of course).

*Limit of one free short stack per guest. Offer valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last, and is not valid with any other offer, special, coupon or discount.
