For anyone hoping that the Maryland Jockey Club would reconsider its policy banning BYOB from the Pimlico infield party at the Preakness Stakes, forget it.
Although attendance slumped a wee bit in 2009, the first year of the “no BYOB” policy, attendance at last weekend’s 138th Preakness was 117,203, the fourth-highest crowd ever for the race, according to Blood Horse.
That was slightly down from last year’s record attendance of 121,309. Those are big-time crowds buying their booze at the track, hardly motivation to allow the Freakness crowds to bring their own again.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
