8/16/2017 – Staring directly at the eclipse is a terrible idea that could cause long term damage to your eyes. But scoring a free pair
of safe-viewing glasses at one of the Orlando public libraries is a very good idea.
On Monday, Aug. 21, 10 public library will be hosted Solar Eclipse Parties and handing out free glasses to attendees.
The partial eclipse will begin at 1:27 p.m. and continue until 4:21 p.m.
The 10 participating libraries include the Alafaya Branch Library, Chickasaw Branch Library, Eatonville Branch Library, Herndon
Branch Library, South Trail Branch Library, Southwest Branch Library, Washington Park Branch Library, West Oaks Branch Library,
Windermere Branch Library and Winter Garden Branch Library.
There are a limited number of safe viewing glasses so they will not be handed out before the event and it will be first come
Centra Care is also giving away solar eclipse glasses at all Florida Hospital Centra Care locations, while supplies last,
limit 2 glasses per family.
All giveaway eclipse glasses are CE certified and come directly from the NASA-approved vendor, American Paper Optics.

Each year, 7-Eleven encourages slurpee lovers to show their creativity via its Bring Your Own Cup Day promotion. Which mean
you can bring anything you want (within reason) to the convenient store and fill it up with slurpee! This year, the chain
is expanding the celebration to two days: August 18 and 19. With that in mind, Elite Daily has compiled this list of a few
things you need to remember before picking your cup and heading to your local 7-Eleven. Here they are:
What You Can Bring?: According to 7-Eleven, customers can bring a cup or “a container that can serve as a cup” to fill up with their favorite Slurpee
flavor or flavors.
Things To Remember: Regardless of your cup choice, just make sure it’s food safe and water tight.
How Much Does It Cost?: While there’s a limit of one per person, your filled personal cup is only going to run you $1.50.
Here are some things that people have brought in the past…
Walker Hayes isn’t a newbie to Nashville. He’s been around for a while working hard to make it to where he is today and he
says the inspiration for his single “You Broke Up With Me” came from a few opportunistic people he encountered in Nashville,
NOT girl (like the song suggests). He says, “I’ve been around Nashville for 13 years. I’ve had multiple record deals, and
have lost them. So when things are kind of going good for me now, there’s definitely people crawling out of the woodwork saying
‘Hey, you want to write again?’ and stuff like that. These are people that when things weren’t going so great, they didn’t
really want to hang, they didn’t really want to work with me, they didn’t want to get the families together. Now that they’re
calling, my attitude is somewhat of a ‘Hey, you broke up with me.’ I didn’t run from you, you stopped calling me.”
