A Weekend of Sports at the Race Palace
There will be a doubleheader at the Race Palace at Maxwell and Dunne's Steakhouse on June 10, but don't look for any baseball. Legends from two other sports will be involved instead. From 4:00 - 5:30 p.m., Ron Turcotte, the jockey of Secretariat, will discuss this year's Belmont Stakes. Batting cleanup will be Walt Frazier, a guard on the New York Knicks 1970 and 1973 World Championship teams. Frazier, who is appearing from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., will be discussing this year's NBA playoffs.
On June 11, the Belmont Stakes will be shown on the numerous huge screens inside the Race Palace teletheater. There will be wireless betting and cashiers as well.
As could be guessed from the name, Maxwell and Dunne's Steakhouse houses more than the Race Palace. The main attraction is actually the restaurant that has a vast array of foods, not just steaks. There is also a bar and a cigar lounge.
Maxwell and Dunne's, located at 1600 Round Swamp Road in Plainview, was formerly the home of the now defunct club/concert hall The Vanderbilt. For more information call 516.694.6200 or visit www.mdsteakhouse.com.
