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!
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
