I’ll admit, I’m far more interested to see “Notable Pastry Chefs Sculpt Monument Out Of Pancakes”. Anyone already check out the IHOP at DC USA? If so how was the experience?
From a press release:

· The first 1,500 guests will be treated to (or receive a certificate for) a free short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes.
· Notable D.C. pastry chefs (Leslie Goldman-Poyourow of Fancy Cakes by Leslie and Randi Goldman of Creative Cakes, Inc.) will create an iconic replica of one of Washington’s most famous monuments using thousands of pancakes with the help of students from the culinary program at Bell Multicultural High School.
· Live entertainment (magician, clown, stilt walker, etc.) will entertain the crowds
