What You'll Get
Horse racing is often called "The Sport of Kings," a throwback to the days when the cultural elite would amuse itself by watching horses race each other atop local monarchs. Though the rules of the sport have changed slightly, the palpable excitement remains, and today's Groupon will let you palpate it all day: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Clubhouse Restaurant at Parx Racing in Bensalem from TrackPackPA.com. The restaurant is open Wednesday–Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Today's deal also includes a $2 wagering voucher, good for the minimum $2 bet at Parx Racing.
The Clubhouse Restaurant at Parx Racing fills the bellies of hungry bettors while allowing them to feast their eyes on the horse races that are happening both near and far. Feed your odds evaluator with first-course offerings such as the chicken wings ($9), deep fried and slathered in your choice of sauces including buffalo, teriyaki, or a honey barbecue that is sure to placate even the most bellicose Pooh bears. The popular manhattan clam chowder arrives chock full of tender clams in a creamy broth ($4.50), and the chicken parmesan rests atop a bed of penne and marinara ($11).
Diners can gaze out of the windows that overlook regular races on the Parx Racing track, or turn their attention to contests broadcast from across the region onto the restaurant's many televisions. Today's deal includes a $2 wagering voucher, allowing patrons to throw their lot in with heavily favored champions or scrappy underdogs. Those new to racing can attend a free racing seminar to learn the lingo and etiquette of speeding equines, held every other Saturday from 11 a.m. to noon.
