IHOP will serve up bottomless milkshakes for one day only after comedian Adam Sandler joked that the reason he left the restaurant’s Manhasset location in a recent viral video was “because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to the milkshakes.”

The Grown Ups star was responding to IHOP hostess Dayanna Rodas gaining unexpected fame for unknowingly telling the actor there would be a 30-minute wait for pancakes in a video that was viewed by millions on TikTok. Well, Sandler got his wish, and IHOP declared  May 10 as Milkshake Monday.

“We take our guests’ suggestions very seriously in an effort to continually shake things up,” said Kieran Donahue, IHOP’s chief marketing officer. 

Patrons can visit any of the 19 IHOP locations on Long Island, as well as restaurants nationwide, for all-you-can-drink milkshakes from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 10.

The company will donate $1 for each bottomless shake sold up to $50,000 to Comedy Gives Back, a nonprofit that helps comedians struggling due to pandemic-related income loss. Sandler headlined the group’s livestream fundraiser last year.

“We are thrilled to celebrate ‘Milkshake Monday’ at IHOP in the spirit of a cheeky smile for a good cause,” said Amber J. Lawson, CEO, Comedy Gives Back. “A handful of comedians are household names, but the majority are not. We are grateful for IHOP’s support to help working comedians stay afloat in this challenging time.”
