There's no end of things to do at Dover Downs. Head to one part of the hotel and entertainment complex to find table games; elsewhere, there's a relaxing spa and live harness racing. But on the hotel's second floor?overlooking the main lobby?the entertainment is edible. Michele's dining room hosts a collage of fine wines and cuisine from around the world, including sushi that's flown in daily and lobster tails sourced from South Africa, otherwise known as the lobster-tail of the continent. On some tables you'll find volcanic stones, which keep rib eye steaks and other meats the perfect temperature.
As for drinks, the selection changes constantly, with wines rotating in from the likes of Italy, France, and California. Although there are dozens of reds, whites, and sparklings, diners shouldn't have too hard a time making a selection. Most entrees come with a suggested pairing?for instance, a California cabernet sauvignon from Sebastiani helps bring out the flavors of the house-smoked prime rib.
Known as the "Monster Mile," the one-mile Dover International Speedway track hosts highly competitive stock-car racing on high-banked concrete. This deal will let you watch NASCAR behemoths such as Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and defending four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson as they power around the track 400 times and at triple-digit speeds. As the number-two race in the "Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup," the AAA 400 has extra importance, as drivers will jostle for precious points in the standings, hoping to drink victory from the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Each seat at Dover International Speedway will give you clear views of the entire track and Victory Plaza's beastly "Monster Monument". The festive atmosphere on a race weekend also means you'll have ample opportunity to enjoy live musical entertainment, several autograph sessions with drivers past and present, and admire slick, new show cars.
The Biggs Museum of American Art showcases late founder Sewell C. Biggs's impressive collection that focuses on the evolution of American and especially Mid-Atlantic art from the 18th century up to the present. Steal some time inside the museum's 18 intimate galleries and peruse the permanent collection’s early American furniture, regional silver, and sculptures needled by the famously opposable-thumbed Hiram Powers. Although admission is free, the Biggs Museum fills a bustling calendar with programs such as art classes and kids’ activities that members can enjoy at a discount, along with events such as the annual member appreciation breakfast. With a rotating cast of exhibitions, current offerings include the Award Winners XI exhibition running through October 23, 2011, which displays works by the Individual Artist fellows of the Delaware Division of the Arts. The upcoming Delaware By Hand: Masters Competition exhibition, on display from November 4, 2011 to February 19, 2012, features contemporary work chosen by a panel of judges and presented in tandem with an array of public programs, art sales, and grassroots movements to line public spaces with paint-spewing fire hydrants.
