What are *you* all up to this weekend?

I went to the track today. The Meadows, a harness racing track, is close to Pittsburgh and recently reopened after a renovation where they tore down the old building and built a slots casino. There's still racing, but it clearly has become an afterthought. Today was the running of The Adios (named for a horse), the biggest stakes race for pacers in PA.

I found I have no desire to hang around the slots casino. Outside of special events, racing has been cut back to Mon-Thu nights and I don't see myself going back for weeknight racing.
