Pancakes! Get yer pancakes! In honor of National Pancake Day, IHOP is giving away free short stacks from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. All the breakfast chain asks is that you consider making a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. (But you should probably um, really make one. Just sayin'.)
If pancakes aren't your thing, the Coastal Kitchen on Capitol Hill is offering its entire dinner menu for half off - $9 paella! - from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m today. All you have to say to your server is "early bird." Gold's Gym members can get the same deal tomorrow evening, too. Just bring in your membership tag.
Lastly, the Seattle Times reports that Seattle Restaurant Week will take place April 18-29. More than 100 King County restaurants, including Canlis, Emmer & Rye, and Madison Park Cafe, will attempt to woo new customers with three-course dinners for $25. Some will also offer three-course lunches for $15. Consider us wooed.
...Now that was a pleasant edition of Morning Food News.
