dollar day at golden gate fields

Kate ParrishComment

it only took 6 years to make this happen! 

last sunday we made our way over the bay bridge to berkley with dollar bills in our pocket ready to cash in for coins that would later buy us dollar beers and dollar dogs and [7] dollar nachos at golden gate fields. the day started with a spritz and donuts at our apartment before grabbing lunch at picante [as appealing as the dollar dogs were, we figured arriving with a fully belly was probably wise]. this authentic mexican spot was delicious, had a sun-ripping patio and was walkable to the fields. afterwards we stopped at fieldwork brewing co. for a few tastings before the first race at 1:45. we bet money... won money... lost money... CRUSHED nachos... splurged on $5 VIP seats... and had such a fun afternoon cheering on our horsies, people watching and sipping canned rosé. the bart ride home was rather sleepy, but i'm so glad we finally experienced GGF.
