Why You Should Go: Betting on ponies requires a little bit of luck and a little bit of confidence, both which you can find after sipping an unlimited amount of craft beer samplings.

What You Will Do: Head to the Meadowlands Race Track on Saturday, July 21 for the Summer Beer & Harness Racing Festival that includes an unlimited amount of brews from Cricket Hill Keegan’s and many more in the grassy Paddock Area. Then at 7pm the harness races begin, and you’ll get a $10 starter to place on your favorite, all with the live crooning of Outside the Box around you. What You Should Know: The festivities start at 7pm on Saturday, and you can catch the horses, jockeys, and harnesses whipping around the track’s bends live or on outdoor TVs. Meet with a professional bettor for a tiny lesson in luck before placing some epic bets, listen to live jams and drink from your commemorative pint glass, and see how lucky the ponies can make you.
