"A Day at the Races" The Queen's Cup Steeplechase is SOLD OUT!!!

Good Eats and Meets & presents...
"A Day at the Races"
Queen's Cup Steeplechase
Saturday, April 27th, 2013
















Hello!  We hope that you guys are as excited as we are about the Queen’s Cup Steeplechase this Saturday and our “Day at the Races”.  We just wanted to go over a few things to make sure that everybody is on the same page, in order to be as efficient as possible so that everyone is prepared to have the best time during the event.

We will be offering a pickup in the Lake Norman area in front of Blockbuster near On The Roxx.  The bus will be leaving there at 9:30a SHARP!!  I will need to have a list of folks meeting at this location, so the bus driver knows how many people he will be picking up there.

The next pickup location will be at the Music Factory parking lot behind Mattie's Diner.  We will be leaving no later than 10:15a SHARP!!

For the trip down there, we will have some Ice Cold Abita Beer, Red Bull, and Bottled Water.

Once we get to the race, we have a GREAT day planned for you!! Including...

Access to an Exclusive Private VIP Tailgate Area On the Rail (YES, we are RIGHT ON THE RAIL!!!)

• A Gourmet Lunch-Think YUMMY New Orleans Food specialties and for dessert we will have a traditional King Cake as well as other desserts to choose from graciously provided by Sunflour Baking Company

• Unlimited Cocktails, Wine and Beer-We will have an amazing array of beverages to choose from... 
Get ready for the quintessential horse race cocktail with our Maker's Mark Mint Juleps, as well as a variety of other cocktails using Maker's Mark and Skinny Girl Vodka  We will also be serving THE Louisiana Beer-Abita Beer Skinny Girl Wine and energy drinks by Redbull

This year, we are spicing things up even more and we will be entering the "Top Tailgate Spot" competition. We are going with a Mardi Gras / Bourbon St. theme. So get ready to get your BEADS ON! 

For those of you that miss the bus - you will be responsible for your own transportation. The address to Steeplechase is 6103 Waxhaw Hwy, Mineral Springs, NC 28108 (704)[masked] Our Spots are Valley View 140 and 141 There is a crossing at Valley View 168, find us from there.

ALSO - Please bring lawn chairs and anything else that might make your stay more comfortable.  We will depart from Steeplechase around 5:00p.

If you have any questions, NOW is the time to ask!

    It appears that NCMF was chosen as a happy middle meeting point; not to play favor to one area allowing for one pick up. We have folks north of lake Norman and out to ballantyne and Indian trail...sounds about even to me for the outskirts folks like myself north in concord. I am looking forward to this trip but hope there's not residual negativity...bad way to start a day. Let's have fun and go off to the races! :-)

      Thank you for your comments Tracey, glad to see there are some level heads out there. This will a great time and I am planning a day unlike any other group going the races. I WILL NOT allow any negativity and those spreading that WILL NOT take part. This is a PARTY and we all need to be on the same page, a positive page...So looking forward to it. Thanks again!

    There are 7 of us from the Lake Norman area, and we'd love to have the bus pick-up location at least on the north side of Charlotte.
