If you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you know I’ve been busy shopping in a Chevy Equinox loaner for the big Doernbecher raffle. I’ve put together a grill package consisting of a fabulous Traeger Lil Tex Pro Grill and Smoker (sells for $799), $200 in delicious steaks from The Meating Place, a $100 Parr Lumber gift card (for grill accessories and meat rubs), and a great grill recipes book from Powell’s Books. The Chevy Shop Social: Portland fundraiser will take place this Thursday (May 21st) in Pioneer Square on May 21st (starts 6 pm). Raffle tickets are only $2 each (12 tickets for $10, 15 tickets for $20). That means for as little as $2, you can enter to win my grill package that is worth over $1100. Sweet deal, right? As I mentioned before, this is a great cause because raffle proceeds will benefit the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Today is National Pancake Day. Normally this would mean free pancakes at IHOP today. But this year, IHOP will celebrate National Pancake Day a week later. IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer free pancakes next Tuesday, February 28, 2012. For 15 hours (7am to 10pm), each guest can have a free short stack of IHOP’s buttermilk pancakes.
