Too many uninformed folks think that the only time Saratoga is alive is during the frenetic, wild, broiling days of July and August when the Thoroughbreds race across Union Avenue from The Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast.
Oh, pish. This rumor flies directly in the face of Reality: Saratoga is a year-round destination. Right now, April, is a fine example: event listings are pouring in. So many options: it’s possible to become dizzy just from reading about all the opportunities for fun, learning, adventure and the making of new friends.
Not enough space here, to go through every event that’s coming up, and the hundreds of opps to explore our fine city, county and region. So we’ll give a couple of highlights here, and encourage you to visit other ‘sites where you can explore your options. (Then, let your boss know that you’re taking time off…) 🙂
Our calendar starts one week from today, when our own Tom Amello will co-anchor with Mike Veitch at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s annual Countdown to the Triple Crown: Kentucky Derby Preview Panel in the gorgeous, historic Hall of Fame. Just four doors down from our B&B, the annual ritual of racing analysis begins at 12Noon on April 28th, and is free to the public. (Those of you who are wise wagerers will want to spend the night before–and/or the night after–here with us, for that will offer you the rare opportunity to follow Tom back here, and pick his brains / talk horse racing until the wee hours.) For room reservations, give us a call: (519) 584-6751, but hurry: we don’t want you to miss this chance to yak about horses with Tom on our lovely front porch. 🙂
God knows, there are scores of things that will happen here in-between April 28th and June 30th, but here’s the early heads-up about June 30th:
If there’s one thing Saratoga loves, it’s an opportunity to eat and consume beverages.
When it’s for a good cause–even better.
On June 30, in the parking lot that straddles Caroline Street and Lake Avenue, you are invited to Eat, Drink Saratoga. Tickets are available, and the very worthy cause is the Saratoga County Children’s Committee. (You can have an amazing time and feel good, knowing that your $ will make the lives of regional children healthier and happier.)
So many things in-between those two dates–and many will come happen after June 30. But the one thing that you know you’ll need in order to enjoy Saratoga to the max–whether it’s a concert, food/bev event or historic re-enactment is: a comfortable, soothing place to lay your weary head at the end of your hectic days and nights. And, being in walking distance of downtown Saratoga, and mere steps from the Saratoga Race Course and Fasig-Tipton–really, booking now with us at The Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast–is the only sure bet in this town.
