Pancakes and Putting for an Extra Sweet Halloween

Nobody should be starved for sugar on Oct. 31, but at least two area businesses are offering additional Halloween treats.

Pancake giant IHOP is marking the holiday by offering a free buttermilk pancake with fixings to children aged 12 or under. The “scary face” pancake comes with whipped cream, strawberry glaze, cookies and candy corn for decorating purposes.  Although it’s only free on Halloween, the DIY pancake platter will be listed on the children’s menu throughout October.

At Blackbeard’s Cove in Mt. Pleasant, the miniature golf course is now decorated in “a kid-friendly Halloween theme.” The course costs $10 to play, and admission includes a bag of candy and scoop of ice cream.
