Phil Vettel of the Trib explain what's going on at IHOP on Tuesday:
"Tuesday is IHOP's annual National Pancake Day celebration, and once again, the chain will be giving away a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes — yes, free — to all comers from 7a.m. to 10p.m. What IHOP asks in return is that you consider, just consider, making a donation to support the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Show up from 7 to 11 a.m. at the 3760 N. Halsted St. location, and you'll catch an appearance by Hannah Smith, more formally known as Miss Illinois. Free pancakes. A good cause. A woman who actually owns a tiara. What more do you want?"
