IHOP and Dog Haus Want You to Stuff Your Face

Bring your appetite.

Is your juice cleanse over yet? Do you want to win a year of free pancakes? Or free hot dogs, sliders, and swag? IHOP and Pasadena-based Dog Haus want you to put down that bottle of green juice and enter their food-eating competitions this month.

IHOP: Order the restaurant’s signature “All You Can Eat Pancakes” stack off the menu now through January 26 and the person who eats the most pancakes at each IHOP location wins free pancakes each week for the rest of 2014 (four pancakes in any flavor once per week). Each location will post a chart to tally the progress of each diehard pancake lover. The winner will be announced at the end of the month. More information.

Dog Haus: To help kick off Pasadena’s third annual Cheeseburger Week (January 12 through 17), the hot dog purveyor is inviting guests to join in to eat or cheer on 12 competitors in a slider eating competition on Saturday, January 11 at noon. A hungry dozen will face off to see who can eat the most Dog Haus sliders in six minutes. The top three participants will receive over $1000 in food credit and prizes. All attendees will receive samples, swag, and beer from local breweries. A live DJ and games round out the family friendly afternoon. More information.
