If you don't speak pancake, a short stack is three of IHOP's buttermilk pancakes. The chain will be running the promotion from 7 am to 7 pm on Tuesday, July 18. Check to make sure your local International is participating, because some might not. (And rejoice if you live in Vermont, where IHOP stocks real maple syrup.)
IHOP also has another promotion running if you really want to indulge. If you buy a $25 gift card before the end of the month, you get a free $5 coupon. Those coupons expire August 30, but if you're going to spend $25 at IHOP anyway, you can buy yourself a little gift and get $5 worth of free pancakes.
That's the kind of thing that makes Rufio say bangarang.
