Sure, we're all screaming for ice cream, but the fact is, what we really want is free pancakes, and you can get them this week in Grand Junction.

Tuesday, March 8 is National Pancake Day, and what better place to celebrate than at IHOP, formerly known as International House of Pancakes.

From 7AM-7PM, IHOP customers on Highway 6 & 50 can enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes - and of course, that includes your choice of syrup.

It is hoped that customers will then leave a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2006, more than $20 million dollars has been raised via free pancakes.

Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion for chldren's hospitals across the country. Donations support research and training, purchase of equipment, and uncompensated patient care.
