Breeders' Cup Fans Can Spend "An Evening with Shug and Paulie" Nov. 1
Racing experts from trainer Shug McGaughey and former New York Met and TVG analyst Paul LoDuca are among six handicapers on hand for "An Evening with Shug and Paulie," Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. at Gallagher's Steak House
The evening includes a three course sirloin steak dinner, complimentary glass of wine, Breeders' Cup handicapping and sports question & answer/autograph session.
In 1927, at the height of Prohibition, two things were pretty hard to find in New York a good stiff drink and a great steak. Except, of course, at a speakeasy that came to be known as Gallagher's.
This storied gathering place is where New York's famous and notorious assembled to indulge themselves in pleasures of the palate and forbidden spirits. A place where gamblers, sports figures, show people, novelists, playwrights and judges sat at tables across from gangsters, strippers, ballerinas and business titans.
In 1933 prohibition ended and speakeasies across the country began closing their doors. Gallagher's, however, became more popular than ever. A simple truth became clear: while anyone could now get a drink everywhere, a great steak was still hard to find.
