I am organising my sisters hens weekend. I was initially looking at a weekend away but for a variety of reasons that isn't going to work now.

The poor thing just got diagnosed with glandular fever and feels like crap so I thought perhaps a day thing and some cocktails with a relatively early night.

I was thinking going to Randwick races. The thing is I have never been to the races. Can someone tell me whether the races would be a good idea. How does the admission work. Would we take our own champagne of do we buy there. Can you just have a picnic on the lawn.

If anyone has been to the races I would love some ideas.

thanks biggrin.gif

I've been to Randwick a few years back for a Hens day. I don't have any interest in the horses either.

We each paid our admission fee when we walked in and found the others who had gone there early to grab a table. As for champagne, you have to buy it there but you can bring in picnic baskets of food.

I'm not a drinker, so I was just bored. The girls that I used to go to the races with, they loved it for the dressing up and the getting smashed. By 2pm my friends were well under the weather, very sunburnt and when the races were over they pretty much rolled to the car/taxi.

I would've much preferred a cruise on the harbour for the afternoon or going to high tea at one of the big hotels, but that's just me.

Thanks for the feedback smile.gif I am not into the horse at all either hence never having been. I was thinking about the dressing up value.

We are having a high tea for her kitchen tea. I did look into a cocktail making class.

There was one at LOFT and one in Newtown. I will look into a harbour cruise as well - that would be nice if the weather was good.

We recently had my bestie's Hen's Day at Rosehill Races. I booked tables up in the Bacardi Cocktail Bar and ordered platters of food, which were yummy. We had people of all different ages from early 20s through to 60s and they all had a great time.

I do like the races though, as does my bestie. I am not a gambler otherwise, but at the races I find it fun to have some drinks and a small bet on each race - just to get into the spirit Iguess.

We had a FABULOUS day biggrin.gif
