The Economy Must Really Be Bad

In a sure sign that the current state of the economy has reached the consciousness of the elite, The Saratogian reports that socialite and horse owner Mary Lou Whitney will not be throwing the annual Whitney Gala in Saratoga this August. The over the top gala's were a yearly tradition, a invitation only party thrown on the eve of the Whitney Stakes.

Mary Lou Whitney and her husband, John Hendrickson, will continue with their many other community efforts including contributing to a Sunday evening dinner program for all backstretch workers and their families.

Maybe the TBA can step in and throw a bash.

On our budget, it would have to be a kegger. Is that too crass for Saratoga? :)

I know a driveway in town we could set up the kegger and have a bang up game of flip cup or beer pong too!

Hell, I'd find a way to scrounge up the cash for that... ^-^
