Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I can't believe we are nearing the end of August! It doesn't seem possible. Though I do enjoy back-to-school shopping, I do not enjoy bidding farewell to summer. September will bring major changes for me, and you! I'm launching SaratogaMama very soon and I can't wait to tell you more about it. What I can say is that it will be everything you like about MaltaMama only better! This Saturday is the annual Travers Race at Saratoga Race Course. It's a big day for Saratoga as this race is the most well-attended of the season. To kick off the madness in Saratoga, now through Thursday is Travers Restaurant Week. At 40 area restaurants, you can enjoy a three-course meal
(year of the first Travers Race). Here's a list of participating restaurants
. BSpa/Malta joints include Loca Luna, Sunset Cafe, Finish Line Restaurant and Bar, and Cliff's Country Inn.
Today (gates open at 5pm) is Day 1 of the Washington County Fair
. It ends on Sunday, Aug 28th so you have plenty of time to get there! Tuesday-Sunday gates open at 9am, but rides don't start runnin' until noon. Admission is $10/adult kids under 14 are free. Here are Directions to the Fairgrounds which are in Greenwich:
