Total Eclipse Party

Total Eclipse Party

Join us for a once in a lifetime experience to witness a Total Eclipse of the Sun on Monday, August 21st. The party will be from Noon until 4pm with the eclipse happening around 2:30pm. You will be able to experience a 99% blockage of the sun. We will have food specials, great beer and special musical guests putting together a set list worthy of such an occasion. Please remember, looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse, when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face within the narrow path of totality for up to 2.5 minutes. You can watch the progress of the eclipse for much longer with “Eclipse Shades” available all over town.
