ALBANY (KCBS) – A promotion scheduled for Saturday at Golden Gate Fields has many with Mothers Against Drunk Driving concerned. Hoping to reel in a younger crowd, officials are starting “Bottomless Saturdays” with unlimited well drinks served all afternoon for a flat fee of $30.
Dan Cirimele of Golden Gate Fields said bartenders will receive additional training on how to deal with unruly drinkers. Additional security – mainly off-duty Alameda County sheriff’s deputies – will be on hand as well. To encourage further safety, wristbands will be handed out to designated drivers, meaning free bottles of water and soft drinks for them.
