You know how you’ve been meaning to go to Dollar Day at Golden Gate Fields for like a hundred years and you’ve still never been? You should go finally, seriously. I did recently, and it was a lovely day.
The photo ops are plentiful:
The ponies are majestic:
You learn a thing or two about fashion from all the old dudes hanging out:
There’s badass graff out by the parking lot:
And you can catch an otherworldly sunset at the beach on your way out:
Then wander the streets of Berkeley and happen upon funny stuff on your way to dinner:
Yeah, since you’re over there anyway, this is a good time to catch up with those East Bay buddies you haven’t seen for a while and finally try one of those restaurants they like, like Paisan:
And then a leisurely train ride home:
What a lovely day at the races!
