Starting at noon on Monday, Aug. 21, the Waffle House restaurant in Pendleton, South Carolina, will be hosting games with the chance to win prizes, like official Waffle House merchandise and eclipse-themed swag.

Waffle House employees will also pass out eclipse-viewing glasses while supplies last.

But the best part? Special eclipse-themed blueberry waffles.

Admission is free to all. Waffle House has all the details on its Facebook page.

Waffle House operates more than 1,500 restaurants nationwide and its Pendleton, South Carolina, location is right inside the eclipse’s path of totality, the 70 mile stretch of land between South Carolina and Oregon where the skies will completely darken during the eclipse.

The restaurant is approximately two hours from metro Atlanta.
