Brooke and Phil’s Belmont Stakes and Delicious Steaks Big Adventure
The time has come once again! Save the date for Saturday, June 5th as we’re embarking one of our most ambitious New York Big Adventures yet. We’re calling it: Belmont Stakes and Delicious Steaks!
We’re starting and ending in New York City, but we’re also going to break new ground as we trot/gallop out to Belmont, Park in Elmont, New York (just outside of Queens). The plan is to enjoy a good chunk of the 142nd Belmont Stakes and cheer till we’re horse (groan...)! Tickets are surprisingly inexpensive at just $10 a piece and the grandstand seats are a laidback, enjoyable time. Most importantly, this is truly a signature event in this area that we think many of our friends haven’t had the chance to experience yet.
We’re also incorporating some very cool Horse Racing themed events and bar-related stops back in the city before and after our day at Belmont. We will tie in some of the city’s best grilled steaks (think along the lines of Philly Cheese rather than Peter Luger’s) and more. Perhaps a Wooden Horse Racing Contest? Or an award for Best Dressed Race Day clothes?
As per usual, we’ll be posting all the information, stops and critical details you will need In about two weeks. We plan on starting around noon and, once again, going to the late hours of the night where you can join us along the way and invite anyone you choose.
In the meantime, you can pick your pony, rent a copy of Seabiscuit and place your boxed trifecta bet when you visit The Brooke and Phil Big Adventure Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/TheBigAdventure (become our fan!) or other info always here.
We also planning ahead and returning to our more traditional roots with a purely in-city event in August in case this Adventure isn’t the one for you.
Hope to see you on Race Day!
