What an excellent afternoon we had for the big Binny's & Arlington Park Taste at the Track event on Saturday! We had a great time - with over 300 wines open (an increase of 50% over last year), food from great Chicagoland restaurants, rocking music by How Far to Austin, plus seminars, horse racing and more...   A big thanks goes out to everyone who joined us - without you we couldn't host great events like these. Thanks to the support from our local distributors and pourers. Thanks to the restaurants who supplied some great eats: Wildfire, Lee & Eddie's, Mon Ami Gabi, Ra Sushi and Redstone American Grill.   Pics and your feedback after the jump...   Okay. We got a lot of great feedback, both glowing in positivity and also some constructive criticism. We're doing this thing again in September (join us at the Track on September 8th!) and we want it to be better than ever, so we'd love to hear your ideas. Our list of areas to improve include: more tables with fewer wines per table ? lose the wristband food tickets ? have event bags with food tickets, wine glass, pen and order sheets ? sell fewer tickets ? overhead table numbers ? more people pouring ? tents for shading the red wines.  Leave a comment below, and let's make the next Taste at the Track the tastiest yet.   And now, more Pics from the Track:

  P.S. I was the guy with the brutal sunburn. 30 SPF sunscreen is a joke.
