Now that it's worked out the kinks since its debut a couple of weeks ago, Track Side at Northfield Park is providing a much-needed watering hole for its betting clientele. With a full menu of liquor and beer, the club also sports a private betting area, access to the track and patio, and more than three dozen 32-inch flat-screen TVs on which to watch the races, cocktail in hand. Jim Nancie of Northfield was one of the first customers to check out the lounge at its June 6 opening, during which the racetrack raffled off TVs, Indians loge tickets, and appliance- and furniture-store gift certificates. "When I come out to watch the races, I want my gambling dollar to stretch," he says. "Besides, it doesn't hurt as much to lose if I've got a beer in my hand." The bar is open at 7 p.m. on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and 1 to 7 p.m. Sundays, at Northfield Park, 10705 Northfield Road in Northfield. Admission is free. Call 330-467-4101 or visit www.northfieldpark.com.
Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m.; Sundays, 1-7 p.m., 2008
