Don’t BYOB

In an effort to keep the partying to a dull roar, officials at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore have axed a long-held tradition at the course that allowed fans to cart in their own beer and other beverages during the annual Preakness Day horse racing events.

Fans will still be allowed to bring food onto the site in ice chests and drinks will be available for purchase.

Expanded festivities during this year’s events May 16 will include a concert featuring ZZ Top and Buckcherry.
