Solar Eclipse Info + $4 Denny’s Mooncakes & Special Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

You’ve probably heard that we’ll get to witness a solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.  In Arizona, we only get a partial eclipse, but still a rare event worthy of checking out.  From what I gather, in Arizona, the action starts at 9:13am with the peak at 10:33am.

NASA has a very well put together website with just about everything you would want to know about the eclipse.

Anyone having luck finding certified viewing glasses, around Arizona?  I hear a lot of places are sold out.

If you can’t find them, you can try making this simple alternative for viewing.

And, if you want to keep the celebration going . . .

Head to Denny’s for a special one-day deal.  They’re serving all-you-can-eat “mooncakes” (pancakes) for $4.  Here’s a short promo video they made.

Here’s info:
“All day long, diners will have the chance to order unlimited Mooncakes—which are Denny’s fluffy, buttermilk pancakes that are shaped just like the moon—for just $4.”

And/or grab a special doughnut at Krispy Kreme . . .

Participating locations will have a special chocolate glaze.  Here’s what they say . . .

“For the first time, Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed® Doughnuts will be eclipsed by a mouth watering chocolate glaze to coincide with the solar eclipse Monday, Aug. 21 at participating US/CAN shops.  Guests also can get an early taste of this limited-time doughnut during evening Hot Light™ hours Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19-20.

Do you know of any other Solar Eclipse specials?

FREE Blaze Pizza for High Schoolers! ~ Thru 8/11

High school students in Arizona can show their ID for a FREE pizza at Blaze Pizza, now through Friday, August 11.  There is a limit of one per person.  There are no time restrictions and you don’t need a coupon.  Amazing deal!!

Here are the locations:
5120 N. Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85012
950 E. Bell Road Ste. 190 Phoenix, AZ 85022
105 W. University Dr. Tempe, AZ 85281

Homeschoolers:  I called the location in Tempe and asked if the offer was valid for your kids (and mine!).  The district manager happened to be there.  He said to bring their Affidavit of Intent to Homeschool and they’d give it to them.  Remember, it’s only for high school students, though.  If you’re going to another location, I’d call ahead.

(Thanks, ABC15!)

FREE Teen Event at AZ Science Center on August 5th

There’s a free teen event at the Arizona Science Center.  It looks fun and you can’t beat FREE! You’ll want to R.S.V.P.  A.S.A.P. to make sure you get a spot. I’m not sure if this fills up, but it looks like a blast!

For information and tickets, go here.  (You can checkout as a guest, if you don’t have a membership or want to sign up.)

And, here’s the summary . . .

Teen Science Social at Arizona Science Center
Saturday, August 5, 2017 |  6–10 p.m.

600 E. Washington St.
Phoenix, AZ 85004

Teens (ages 13–18)  can escape the heat before school starts at this EPIC teen-only event. Explore all four levels of the Science Center, solve science mysteries and make it through the escape rooms to solve the clues that lead to prizes and so much more.

Adults and children under 13 will not be allowed into the Center during the event.  Arizona Science Center staff and City of Phoenix officers will be on-site during the event.

My note:  There will be parking fees, so be prepared for that.  During regular business hours, you can get your parking ticket validated and it’s cheaper.  I’m not sure if everything will be the same for this event or not.  Their parking garage (where validation counts) is the Heritage and Science Park Garage on 5th Street and Monroe Street.

(Thanks, Elizabeth!)
