4 IHOP's National Pancake Day: You can get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at IHOP restaurants on Tuesday, and all they ask in return is that you make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. There's a limit of one stack per person and it's only for dine-in customers. Over the years, this pancake campaign has raised more than $10 million to support children's hospitals. The goal this year is to raise $3 million more. See

5 Target Tuesday: It's the first Tuesday of the month, so that means you get free admission to the Glazer Children's Museum this Tuesday from 2 to 7 p.m. That's a break from the normal admission of $15 for adults, $9.50 for kids. Also, Clifford the Big Red Dog will make an appearance at 2:30, 4:30 and 6 p.m. at the museum in Tampa's Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 110 W Gasparilla Plaza.
