mini-holiday recap time! i went to louisville over the weekend to visit a friend and just get the heck out of dodge. what a great weekend. i saw my first pony race, called a winning longshot pony (which allowed us to win back our money, get free AMAZING tacos from a non-english speaking taqueria, AND parlay our winnings for three more races), went shopping at nitty gritty, ate a massive breakfast at lynn's paradise cafe, watched movies, ate ice cream, visited some local drinking establishments, and sang along to neutral milk hotel. what an excellent weekend.
whooshootoo, our first bet (#2). did i mention it was a nighttime race? odds were 22:1 by the time the race started - and they ended up in second place! rob made $100 off that one, and we made $50 or so.
churchill downs, yo.
our next horse, paper shredder, was in the lead until the very end of the race. go, paper shredder!
pony action shot.
rob and me, looking spoooooky. lordy lou, was it ever hot.
our lovely racing mates: jon...
these dudes were absolutely ridiculous. there were about six of them total.
and video, of course. yes, i'm the one talking.
and my new skirt! one of five rad finds at nitty gritty.
seriously. stellar weekend. thanks, louisville peeps.
