Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Canadian fare from Delicious Concessions by Tumbler's Bar & Grill at West Meadow Raceway. Groupons must be redeemed on October 9. As competing jockeys gallop past, Delicious Concessions nourishes spectators with a hearty supply of tasty Canadian-style treats. Like cattle perusing the online dating scene, cheeseburgers ($6) and poutine ($7) flaunt their decorative dairy in the faces of unadorned hamburgers ($5) and fries ($4). Hot dogs ($4) slide into rolls as single ($3) and double ($4) scoops of ice cream plunge into cones or cups. As 591 mL of fountain drink ($3) soaks throats in carbonated contentment, equestrians whizz around West Meadow Raceway’s half-mile harness race track. Gates and concessions open at noon, and the year's last races begin with a 1 p.m. post time. Admission to the raceway, parking, and horse smiles are free of charge.
