Blow out the can­dles and bring on the but­ter and syrup. For its 59th an­niver­sary, IHOP is serv­ing up a short stack of but­ter­milk pan­cakes for 59 cents on July 18. Hop over to IHOP for the syrupy sweet deal from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Limit one short stack per cus­tomer. The price is just a penny less than its orig­i­nal price of 60 cents back in 1958.

DOL­LAR DOGS

The dis­counted dogs are avail­able all day, with no limit. At such a low-price, the whole clan can munch on lunch for un­der $10. Re­mem­ber, the chain’s pop­u­lar sum­mer shake promo con­tin­ues — get half-price shakes or ice cream slushes af­ter 8 p.m. Deal seek­ers should com­bine the of­fers for max­i­mum sav­ings. son­ic­drivein.com

Ad­mis­sion in­cludes un­lim­ited car­ni­val rides, all rodeos, main stage con­certs, fire­works, 4-H shows, trac­tor pulls, the high-fly­ing Dock Dogs com­pe­ti­tion and loads of fam­ily-friendly en­ter­tain­ment. Lit­tle ones can meet plenty of furry and feath­ery farm an­i­mals, in­clud­ing rab­bits, pigs, goats, sheep and chick­ens. Buy tick­ets on­line for $10 be­fore July 27 — that’s a $5 dis­count. (Tick­ets will be $15 per per­son at the gate, cash only.) Chil­dren un­der 36 inches in height get in free.

COOL CA­NINES

Who says free­bies are just for the two-legged? Good Times Burg­ers & Frozen Custard is serv­ing up a free­bie Fido will def­i­nitely like (and lick), dur­ing the dog days of sum­mer. Through July 31, dogs get a free PawBen­der — no pur­chase nec­es­sary. The ca­nine-friendly treat is a small pup-sized cup filled with vanilla custard, dog­gie bis­cuits and peanut but­ter. Dogs must be ac­com­pa­nied by a hu­man par­ent. good­times­burg­ers.com
