It’s Sunday.  I’ve probably gone Friday.  I’ve probably gone Saturday.  Should I go Sunday?

Yeah, I’m in a Taiwanese Sausage kind of a mood.  Or perhaps some Lamb on a Stick.

Man, I’m getting hungry already.

Tonight (the last night until September) at the Santa Anita Race Track is the San Gabriel Valley’s answer to all those wonderful Night Markets you see on the Travel Channel, the first of this year’s three 626 Night Markets.  (Again, if the 626 Night Market folks want to add on a fourth weekend, I certainly won’t stop them.  In fact, if they need any more money, count me in for a T-Shirt!)

Hours for both Days/Nights run from 4pm to 1am.

There is a $3 Dollar cover charge, and parking is free.
