Saratoga Springs Race Track :: Seating Options

Saratoga Springs NY Hotel

It is no secret that the Saratoga horse racing is the busiest time of year and this Saratoga Springs hotel prides itself on offering guests a true Saratoga experience.  Saratoga Springs is home to the oldest race course in North America, that celebrated 150 years in 2013.

Let’s cheer for Beer!

Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage and is the third most popular drink consumed worldwide, right behind water and tea. Some would argue it is the oldest fermented beverage dating back to 9500 bc.  According to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia “Beer is an alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat.”  I guess there are folks who care about the process, but I would wager more care about the result.  Saratoga Beer Week in Saratoga Springs, NY, February 18-22, 2014 will honor all things beer from the brewing process to the imbibing ritual.

Things to do during Saratoga Winterfest

Winterfest Hockey

Winterfest is an esoteric term that appears to describe any activity or group of events that take place in the dead of winter.  Even Wikipedia, the free online, publicly edited encyclopedia, defines it as “Winterfest is the name of several winter festivals held in various locations in the United States” In short, it is a winter celebration or a celebration of winter.

Winterfest is clearly meant to chase away the Winter Blues…Blahs…or Cabin Fever.
