the Oaks!

Chris and I went to the KY Oaks this past Friday. this is This is SO not our kinda thing that we almost didn't go. (the whole get dressed up- wear a fancy hat- hobnob with the hobnobbers thing always sounds like so much fun but at the end of the day we usually chicken out and just resort to the good ole dinner and a movie). But I am SO glad we did. To make a really really long story short we had tickets given to us...good tickets...owners box undertheroof kinda tickets. We get to Churchill Downs and we cannot find our seats anywhere. It is like they do not exist. Fast forward an hour and a half and we find about a dozen people that are supposed to be seated in our section and they are all fired up because apparently all the tickets in section ___ are invalid. Not in the system; as in we are sorry but you are just going to have to go home. what?! fast forward another 30 minutes; the man who had given us our tickets came and found us; and then tells us that he is so sorry about the problem and here are 2 new the Jockey Suites. Which involves; free food, free drinks, real bathrooms, views from the balcony. wow. Not bad for our first time at the Oaks! and it was such a great date! Sometimes it is good to get out of your "usual" and step out in your best dress and fancy hat:)
