A couple of weeks ago, live racing started back up at Turfway Park. The BF finally had a Friday night off and we wanted to do something different. Neither of us had been before – so there we went.
Friday nights at Turfway provides you 2 dining options: $1 hot dogs & $1 beers or a $15.95 Prime Rib A-Y-C-E buffet. We were feeling fancy for date night and went for the buffet.
What the hell is this??? I wish I could make you guess! Think of something…come on…and…did you get it? Vegetarian Lasagna! Yeah – me either! Actually – I had seconds of this – it was really tasty. Cheesy pasta with vegetables though – really how can it not be good?
After spending $30+ for the buffet – kinda wish we’d gone to town for $5 and just drank and had dogs. But I have to say – the buffet did give us time to sit and talk and actually enjoy each other. Awwww.
Then we can’t do a night at Turfway without talking about the racing! Here we all were – watching them bring out the thing the horses stand in (yes – that’s the technical term). We have dog tracks back home – but I’d never been to a horse track – so it was a fun experience.
I had to beat her off the boy with that racing newspaper she’s holding!
The food? Honestly – I’d probably just do concession stand food next time although the buffet was great. With our work schedules, we needed a little sit-down couple time.
Besides the buffet, Homestretch has a full menu that looked pretty good and was comparable to the $15.95 in price.
I’m giving Turfway 3 stars – even though the food wasn’t amazing or anything. It’s a fun experience and for those of you that have lived here forever but never been – get your butt out there! (Yes – I’m talking to you Red!)
