I think it's safe to say that too many foods or drinks get their own "official" day of recognition. We do not need, nor should we have, National Egg Nog Day (Dec 24), National Twinkie Day (June 24), or National Deviled Egg Day (Nov 2), and yet those are all things I did not make up. However, not all of these "Days" are bogus: TODAY is National Pancake Day, where we pay tribute to our country's most universally acceptable way to basically eat dessert for breakfast. Read on for some of our favorite spots in L.A. for pancakes, plus one place you can go tomorrow to get a stack for absolutely free.
