Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® Celebrates the Solar Eclipse with Free Pancakes

To watch this natural phenomenon, guests can also purchase Solar Eclipse Paper Glasses (starting at $2.49) at Cracker Barrel leading up to and on April 8, while supplies last. According to NASA, proper eye protection is critical when viewing a solar eclipse. Sunglasses are not enough protection and special glasses must be worn, so don’t forget to grab a pair before looking up.

“We are excited to welcome guests in for a complete solar eclipse experience on April 8,” said Cracker Barrel Vice President of Marketing Communications, Julia Perry. “Cracker Barrel offers the perfect setting to witness the event with comfortable rocking chairs on the front porch, solar eclipse glasses for sale in our retail store and a free side of our delicious pancakes with our signature crispy edges that eclipse all other pancakes, in totality.”

A total eclipse of the sun will be seen from Texas to Maine on the afternoon of Monday, April 8. The duration of totality will be up to 4 minutes and 27 seconds, almost double that of The Great American Eclipse in 2017, and the next visible total solar eclipse to cross over the U.S. will come in more than two decades. Enjoy complimentary pancakes and grab your glasses at Cracker Barrel to celebrate the astronomical event of the decade!
