FREE IHOP pancakes today.

UMMC issued the following press release.


WHAT:   IHOP® restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise $3.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals programs nationwide. Miss Mississippi Anne Elizabeth Buys will join the celebration at the Briarwood Drive location at 5 p.m.
WHEN:   The media is invited 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, for the visit of Miss Mississippi Anne Elizabeth Buys.
WHY:      For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised nearly $30 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for child patients — including the more than 150,000 children treated annually at Batson Children’s Hospital.

I wish there were an IHOP in a location I feel comfortable going to.

The Jackson IHop is at the intersection of the I-55 Frontage Road (west) and Briarwood Dr. If anyone in this area is afraid to go there, I can only repeat FDR: The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Couldn't possibly feel comfortable access the street from a refurbished Chili's, and also across from a brand new location for Fuddruckers and Lubys.

Stay in Madison county, go to Another Broken Egg and pay $10 for a short stack. Enjoy!

@ 9:42 You can donate from the comfort of your home via online. The link is in the announcement. There is no need for negativity.

IHOP seems to be a good company with good food and staff. Based on my positive experiences in IHOP restaurants, I tried to buy stock in the company years ago but learned that it is privately owned by essentially one family. Kudos to them for this charitable contribution. Does Waffle House a/k/a Awful House do anything like this?

I usually go to broad street and get the omelet... I will save some money and go to IHOP.

Just what our fat ass state needs-free pancakes

I go to the one on Highway 18 because it's near my home, and I always have the spinach and mushroom omelet with harvest grain pancakes. Yummy!

1:21,
Your obviously one of those fondren or Northeast Jackson elites or yuppies that sends there kids to St. Andrews or some other private school that doesn't know what it's like to have to work for a living being at a real job before 10 AM.

"1:21,

I don't know who pissed in your Cheerios but your little outburst is totally uncalled for.

First, learn the difference between "your" and "you're" (short for "you are", which is apparently what your were trying to say). (We'll ignore "there" for "their" and the fact that Fondren is capitalized - I can't repair your lifetime of ignorance before my coffee gets cold).

Second, "St. Andrew's" has a apostrophe to signify the possessive. It's not plural, and there was not more than one St. Andrew. But we'll skip that because I don't want you to get a brain hernia from trying to learn two new facts in the same day.

Third, Broad Street starts serving breakfast at 7:00. Plenty of times for us elitists who know how to handle a knife and fork to get to work by 8:00. I realize knives and forks are tricky instruments and you probably need to be careful not to injure your shovel hand, so you'd best avoid the place.

Finally, the iHOP promotion was a big hit at the frontage road location where I went. I hope it went well at the other locations too, and that the Children's Medical Network hospitals got some much-needed money.

May need work may not, but sometimes what is important is creating a flow of $ from which the cronies can drink.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
