Need Glasses for the Eclipse? Shoney's Can Help
This map from NASA shows the path of totality for the solar eclipse on August 21, where viewers can see the moon completely block out the sun. But wear your certified glasses to stare at the sun safely.
If you’re ready to get your geek on Monday to view the total solar eclipse but find yourself without viewing glasses, Shoney’s is ready to help. The Nashville-based franchise will give out free viewing glasses and a free MoonPie with meal purchase while supplies last. Or you can pay $3 for the so-called Eclipse Survival Kit without a meal purchase.
“As America prepares for Monday’s total solar eclipse and its citizens seek the path of totality, all roads will lead to Shoney’s,” the company said in a statement. The path of totality, where a total eclipse can be seen, is about 70 miles wide and stretches from Oregon to South Carolina.
Meanwhile, Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries is peddling its “Fly me to the Moon” shake for $1.99 on August 21, down from $3.39 regularly to celebrate the eclipse. “While folks will be seeking the ‘path of totality,’ we know that all roads will lead to Hwy 55 and we will be ready with our incredible shakes,” said CEO Kenney Moore.
OK, the puns are weak but we love the gestures. Now if only we could move Minnesota several miles south.
