Giddy Up! – San Diego, CA

It’s RACE SEASON in Del Mar!!   The city comes alive with summer residence, big hats, white linen & searsucker, televisions tuned into the races and the restaurants and bars crowded on a night-in-night-out basis.

Of course, I love any excuse to throw a party and the opening of the races is the best excuse this city has.   So for the past three years,   my old roommate Cathy & I have invited our friends over for brunch and then giddy on over to the races!  

Off to the Races!

So with opening day last Wednesday, this weekend was the annual event!  Always a good time, this year did not disappoint.  I really wish I could tell you I came back having won big.  Unfortunately, in the last three years I have picked up little about betting.    Oh no, my strategy is pretty much confined to choosing based upon favorite numbers, favorite colors and if I like the name of the horse 🙂    I personally think this is fun in and of itself…

It’s almost bittersweet…  but no worries, next year there’s one more reason to come visit.  :p
