Today's side deal gets you trackside seats, an official program, all-you-can-eat dinner, and heart-racing harness-racing with real live horses at Maywood Park Racetrack for $15 (a $30 value). The racing starts at 7:20 p.m. on December 4, but the delicious eats and premature boasts get started at 6:30 p.m. Your Groupon includes trackside seats in the enclosed and heated Winner's Circle Dining Room, free valet parking, and a live race program.
While the horses gallop along the fast track, you needn't worry about pacing yourself at the all-you-can-eat buffet dinner from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., or the dessert table that stays open until 9:30 p.m. The buffet offers a variety of succulent offerings, including unlimited shrimp and ornate carving stations where you can get a hunk of meat with a lovely etching of your head on a horse's body. When the air behind your horse narrows in the backstretch and it all comes down to a photo finish, the only way to temper your adrenaline is to slip into a deep shrimp-induced coma.
Metromixers give Maywood Park 3.7 stars:
- Maywood is the most centrally located of all the Chicago-area tracks, and offers a full range of dining and party options as well as a fully enclosed seating area for all-weather racing. – Metromix Editorial Review
- went on a Wednesday with a few buddies. We were in the winners circle dining room. The Prime Rib special was good. The salads, vegetables, pasta and garlic mashed potatoes were nicely done for being in a hot tray. Of course dessert. I didn't do well on the horses, but it was close. I just need more practice. We had a good time and will return. – Mike Swan, Metromix
