Party at the Dog
We simply couldn't pass up the chance to make this incredible event one of the epic parties you've come to expect from Dog Days Bar & Grill! We've teamed up with Major Brands and Lens Mart Optical to make it happen from 11-4 pm on Monday, August 21.
We'll be featuring celestial drink specials with Absolut Vodka, Malibu Rum, and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Music will be provided by the Taz & Dr. Cheese Drum & DJ show to make things even more festive, and we're even providing the special eyewear you need to safely get a gander at the solar eclipse. The specialists from Lens Mart Optical, located in Camdenton & Osage Beach, will be on hand to to answer questions and offer assistance to everyone viewing this awesome sight.
Total Eclipse of the Sun
This month we will be experiencing a solar eclipse. This happens when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and the moon blocks the sun from our sight, either partially or completely. Depending on where in the country you are watching from, this will make a difference on whether you see a partial or full solar eclipse. The "path of totality" is a 70 mile wide ribbon that will cross the U.S.A. from west to east. We expect the majority of coverage in our area sometime after 1:00 pm.
Solar Eclipse Viewing Safety
Dr. Erin Gagnon from Lens Mart Optical gave us some valuable information about how the solar eclipse should properly be viewed. You can follow them on the Lens Mart Facebook page or visit Lensmartoptical.com.
- Wear approved solar eclipse viewers.
Regular eyewear is not safe for looking directly at a partially eclipsed sun. You need to be wearing special-purpose solar filters that meet international standard ISO 12312-2 for safe viewing. Special "eclipse glasses" meet these specifications (which we'll have on hand at the Dog Days Eclipse Party!) You risk damaging your eyes if you look at the solar eclipse with only sunglasses, smoked glass, unfiltered telescopes or magnifiers, or polarizing filters.
- Cover eyes BEFORE looking.
To make sure that you do not accidentally get a direct view of the solar eclipse, put special eyewear on before turning toward the sun. Once the glasses are securely in place, glance at the sun, but turn your eyes away before removing the eyewear again.
- Be aware of signs of eye damage.
Once the moon has completely covered the sun, this is the only time it may be safe to look up without the glasses, but once it begins reappearing, special eyewear should be replaced immediately. If you have looked into the sun without proper protection, "solar retinopahty" may occur. This is damage to the tissue at the back of your eye, or retina. This damage can be temporary, but in some cases it's permanent. Your retina does not have pain receptors, so be very aware of any changes to your vision, and contact your eye doctor immediately if you are worried.
Watch With Us!
Amazing experiences like this are always better when you share them with a fun group of people, and that's exactly the type of person that hangs out at our family friendly Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant. Plan to be here when we open at 11:00 am and grab a seat on the deck or chill out in the pool and watch the show from there. This is an event you do not want to miss, which can only be made better by enjoying right here with us at Dog Days Bar & Grill!
