On Monday, Aug. 21, the U.S. will be able to witness the solar eclipse. It’s path will cross east-southeast from Madras, Oregon to Columbia, South Carolina. People from coast to coast are preparing to see this once-in-a-lifetime experience.There are plans for viewing parties with family and friends, complete with stellar snacks and libations.
Zachary Blair, chief mixologist at the rustically elegant Whiteface Lodge resort in Lake Placid, New York – where the eclipse will be 62.2% total – has added the “Bonnie Tyler” to the cocktail menu at Kanu Lounge.
