I have not been to Hawthorne for quite some years now so I have some questions. What should I expect from my experience? Do they still have the fried chicken I have heard about? Would it look weird if I brought my laptop with me? Do they have wi-fi available for public use? And finally, does anybody have any picks for inside information for races either on Friday or Saturday?

Thanks

I don't like Flat Out or Ruler on Ice in the Clark Friday, at CD, but that is just my opinion.

They ought to return to Tampa and fix the mistake they made.

Hawthorne's menu hasn't changed too much.  I don't know if they have the fried chicken every day, but they always have a meal-deal.....big serving of meat plus two sides.   Good selection of hot and cold sides, soup, chilli, hot dog, polish, burgers, sandwiches.
They have wifi, though I'm not sure if it works well throughout the whole building.  Good place for a laptop user is the handicapping center on the third floor.  In case the wifi is out (which happens), there are some dsl outlets. so bring a cable.
We will not steal your laptop, contrary to sad little Maymoral's suggestion.

Wifi is good throughout the first floor...haven't had a problem connecting on my iPad.

Some tough races to figure today but I like Team of Heart in the 1st and Giant Shift in the 2nd.

I really enjoyed my Hawthorne experience today. Had the Fried Chicken and it was really good the price was unbeatable! Another plus to the day was on my way in a guy leaving in a truck handed me a free admission pass. Had some nice winners and it was a great day out at the track. Thanks to all for responding and I will definitely be going back in the future!
