It's the beginning of the 25th birthday celebration of the Milwaukee Ronald McDonald House, and to kick it off on Tuesday, Nov. 10, McDonald's restaurants throughout Southeastern Wisconsin will offer all customers a free hotcakes and sausage platter from 6 to 10:30 a.m.

There's a limit of one per customer, per visit at participating McDonald's restaurants only -- 125 restaurants are chipping in. And, you must dine in -- no drive through orders.

In addition, Friday is McHappy Day with birthday events at select Milwaukee locations. On McHappy Day, $1 from the sale of each breakfast and beef Extra Value Meal will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin.
