This is a joint meet up with another group. It should be a blast!

We will be meeting @ Victory Terrace. The 4th floor (rooftop) of the New Meadowlands Racetrack. Full bar, freshly rolled sushi, hand rolled cigars, DJ music and live horse racing.

There will be an 11 PM Fireworks show from the nearby State Fair that we can view from the roof and there is also a great view of the NYC skyline. Fireworks will be in the distance. If you want an up close view you can go to the State Fair about a half mile away behind Metlife Stadium.

There is a lot happening @ The Meadowlands on Friday. Here is a partial list:

There will be live horse racing that you can view or bet on from every floor.
