IHOP Is Throwing A Milkshake Monday In Honor Of Adam Sandler. Here's What You Need To Know

In this week's episode of "So ... That Just Happened," Adam Sandler left an IHOP in Manhasset, Long Island, NY without eating, after a hostess announced a 30 minute wait time, after which the hostess realized it was Adam Sandler, after which she posted a TikTok video begging him to come back, after which the video went viral, after which Adam Sandler tweeted about the whole thing. As per Adam Sandler's also-gone-viral tweet (no cheekier than we expected it to be): "For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes." Uhuh ... yeah, right. 

But wait, the episode's not over yet. Adam Sandler had a point. The pancake chain's questionable decision to release bacon maple milkshakes aside (via USA Today), who doesn't want to drink all the IHOP milkshakes humanely possible in one sitting? And while IHOP might have turned Sandler and his daughter away at the door, they paid attention to his social media message. In his honor, IHOP declared "May 10th, 2021 #MilkshakeMonday at IHOP" (via Twitter). This is how to participate. 

This is how IHOP's Milkshake Monday will work

Sorry, everybody else in the world who can't get to Long Island, the promo doesn't apply to you. According to Business Wire, only those who visit one of Long Island's 19 IHOP restaurants between the hours of 12:00 pm and 8:00 pm will be able to indulge in all-you-can-drink milkshakes. There's more. IHOP promises that $1.00 of every milkshake sold on May 10 (regardless of where it's sold) will go to Comedy Gives Back, an organization supporting comedians struggling to make ends meet after the COVID-19 epidemic canceled gigs and closed down comedy clubs. 

How much will you have to dish out for all you can drink shakes? $6.49 according to WTVA News. Don't get the wrong idea. IHOP couldn't possibly be taking advantage of viral tweets for business. "We take our guests' suggestions very seriously in an effort to continually shake things up and satisfy all palates with our signature commitment to IHOSPITALITY," HOP's Chief Marketing Officer Kieran Donahue, explained the initiative in a statement. There's no word yet on whether Adam Sandler will return to IHOP to take part in Monday's festivities.
