Tuesday To-do: Feb. 23

Today is National Pancake Day which means two things: 1) You just learned something new (you’re welcome) and 2) Free pancakes at IHOP.

No, seriously.

From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., you can get one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. All they ask is that you consider making a charity donation. In case you didn’t know, the Fayetteville IHOP is located at 3153 W. Wedington and yes, they are a participating location.

And no, they’re not one of our sponsors.

After you fill up on pancakes, you might consider partaking in one (or more) of the following interesting entertainment options for this fine evening:

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’ is at Walton Arts Center. At times, Keb’ Mo’s “contemporary Robert Johnson” sound is a little too contemporary for my taste, but still, the man’s a total badass. Tickets start at $28.50.

Fayetteville playwright Adam E. Douglas premieres a handful of new plays tonight at Opal Fly’s Feel Good Lounge. One’s called “The Weird Sisters.” I’m sold. It’s $5 and starts at around 7 p.m.

Smoke & Barrel Tavern hosts Austin’s Greyhounds while George’s has locals Perpetual Werewolf, Pink Drapes and High Magic. Two words: High Magic.

What else? Jazz at Scarpino’s, open mic night at Rogue and live music at JJ’s.

Those plus a couple more:
