May 23, 2014:
This will definitely be a stop in future trips to the race, as is Main Street which looks like it will just get better.
Like I said, I was able to be third in line to get Al Unser Jr.'s autograph on the picture of his impressive AUJ Camaro, limited edition. They had a good band, even though sound problems kept them from starting on time.
Another spot that we liked on Main Street was BBQ & Bourbon, a very woodsy interior, but I went outside to where the band was (and I had my drivers license with me so could get into the outdoor beer garden). I decided to have dinner there and got the two gigantor wings (both pieces) for $3 and fully availed myself of the two kinds of sauce, one regular, the other spicy, but well within acceptable hot range. They were cooking outside and what a smell.
Their band, Abby Something Band, was playing as well so had my music and rock 'n roll. Also bought a $2 ear of corn and instead of butter, slathered it with both kinds o' sauce. Mighty Good Eatin'.
