The first question you’re likely to ask is “Why?” Why is IHOP charging exactly 58 cents (normally $7.29) for a short stack of pancakes today only? The reason is that 5 and 8 are the last the last two digits in the year — 1958 — that the first International House of Pancakes opened its doors in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
But ours not to reason why. Ours is only to take advantage of free (or near-free) food when the opportunity arises. And today the opportunity arose at 7 a.m. and will remain in force until 7 p.m. The deal is limited to just one order per guest, for dine-in service only, at participating locations.
