Growing up in the DC area I have always heard of people going to Gold Cup, Foxfields, Preakness, etc., and to be honest, I never really cared to join the fun. Well, that was until this past Saturday.
I knew that traditionally girls wear nice dresses and big hats, but I opted to just sport the hat instead of the whole outfit. It was a bit chilly and I didn't feel like suffering when in fact I've never been one to feel like I have to look like everyone else to fit in. I drank mimosas and bloody mary's and people watched like nobody's business. I would definitely go back.
