Eat up: National Pancake Day Is upon us

Shelby Snigar, Staff Writer

Pancakes, pancakes and pancakes.  Your hunger problems have been heard and answered!  This March 8, is NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY.

National Pancake Day was started in 2006 by the International House of Pancake restaurant, more commonly known as IHOP.  The restaurant created the celebration to raise money in support of charities through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ Program.

Since 2006, IHOP has raised about $20 million for the charities.

To celebrate National Pancake Day, here are five restaurants in Greenville, South Carolina with amazing pancakes.
