Hey. I’ve been trying to do new things lately, experience different things, understand how certain things work and general get out there and enjoy life more. Spontaneously, last Friday night I went to the ‘Owlerton Stadium’ in Sheffield which for those that don’t know is the greyhound dog races. It was a really great night, I highly recommend going!
We paid £15 each for entry and to go into the restaurant and have a three course meal! There was a lot of choice on the menu but I went for the Prawn Cocktail for starters, Lamb with veg and potatoes, with the most gorgeous red wine sauce for main and then a raspberry cheesecake for dessert. It was really lovely, and for only £15, a great meal for so cheap!
I’m not a very lucky person generally but I did actually win two of the races! I’m not a huge gambler either, I like to be sensible and only bet a tiny amount on each race. I know the whole point of going to the races is to bet on the dogs but to be honest I just went for the night out. I could see that a lot of people were only there to enjoy the gorgeous food, atmosphere and a few drinks with friends. A lot of people would be put off as they think you have to place a bet, but don’t be, you don’t have too. Just go to enjoy a night out in a different location, and who knows you may fancy a little bet when your there and end up coming home a winner!
