Written By: Jordan Ligons Opening Day After-Party
The Opening Day ceremonies at the Del Mar Racetrack are over; you’re still dressed to the nines, fancy hats and pocket squares abound. Why turn in early? Head over to the Premier Opening Day After-Party (ODAP) at L’Auberge Del Mar on July 19 from 5 p.m. to midnight. This will be the spot to see and be seen, by the sea. In America’s Finest City, racing season is a hot time; the city comes alive! Partake in the party festivities during every local’s favorite time of year.
Come ready to enjoy signature cocktails and melt-in-your mouth appetizers. The hotel’s mixologists will be mixing something extra special for you. This year’s signature cocktail, aptly named Off to the Races, features bourbon whiskey with ginger beer, honey and Memphis Barbeque Bitters—yum! Kick up your feet, reserve a private cabana and enjoy this picturesque location’s speciality menu, which includes a raw bar filled with ceviche made of shrimp and white bass, poached shrimp and crab claws.
Expect even more culinary delights from Chef Nathan Lingle throughout the party. Cavatelli pasta, chicken verde carnitas, power green salad sensation, and you can’t forget dessert; Bourbon Vanilla Cheesecake and Sangria Gummy Bears Gelees are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! Dance the night away with SoCal’s premiere DJs FishFonics and Gabe Vega spinning the ones and twos by the pool deck. Come out and get your party on, San Diego and celebrate racing season all summer long at L’Auberge Del Mar.
