    Free Pancake Day at IHOP 


    Everyone seems to be hopping onto this free breakfast thing nowadays.

    Today, along with it being malasada day, IHOP’s all across the nation are celebrating Mardi Gras in their own special way by calling it “National Pancake Day.”  Besides giving away a free short stack of pancakes between the hours of 7am and 10pm, all IHOP’s will be raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network.

    They’ve been doing this since 2006, so it’s not like they’re trend-humping on the Denny’s thing, but since Hawaii’s only had ONE IHOP for so long, no one really did any coverage on it.  Now that it’s in multiple locations, people should be flocking over to get some free pancakes and donate to a worthy cause.

    Happy Malasada Day! 



    In Hawaii, we celebrate Fat Tuesday, but we go about it in a different way.

    Fat Tuesday is the day before the beginning of the Catholic season of Lent.  Usually, for Lent, people give up indulgent foods for the 40 Days.  That includes malasadas, the fried, sugar coated puff bread pastry of Portuguese origin that’s a locals favorite.  So, as tradition, Leonard’s – the purveyors of such delectable creations – has always designated the the day before Ash Wednesday as “Happy Malasada Day.”

    So, get all happy go lucky and scarf down a dozen or so of these things before it’s no go starting on Wednesday.

    You can find all the Leonard’s locations here.
