The Preakness: A Balance of Booze, Horses and the Sun

What I learned from my visit to the Preakness:

1. I'm still a big fan of sundresses and the women who host them.

2. The Mug Club ($20 all-you-can-drink) is a good idea...until you risk running out of beer...then prepare for sweaty, drunk and sunburned riot.

3. Port-a-potties are still gross. My advice, do all your drinking and eating early so you don't have to use them after all the people who have been stuffing themselves with burgers, burritos and funnel cakes. If you must go, try to find a stable with an apathetic horse.

4. Collective Soul still exists...I don't know why.

5. Protect your lawn chairs with your life. Drunk guys in need of rest have a rather socialist view on seating. This guy was actually the second dude to take a spell in our chairs. Not that we minded, but when you can't even eat efficiently due to your intoxication - its probably time to call it a day.
