Stephan Pastis, who you may know as the mind behind Pearls Before Swine and his newest venture, Timmy Failure, will be at the Northshire Bookstore on Broadway on October 14th. We were lucky enough to speak with Stephan about his career, what's up next and his first visit to Saratoga. Check it out:
Update: Steven won! He fooled Penn & Teller and will have the opportunity to open for their show in Las Vegas.
If you have ever walked along bustling Broadway on a warm spring or summer evening, more likely than not you have come across the wizardry that is Steven Brundage. You may know him as the guy who got out of a speeding ticket by enchanting the police officer with his famous Rubik's Cube trick (Saratoga.com was treated to this magic trick a couple months ago when Brundage visited our office and I am still mind blown.)
A new attraction at Saratoga Race Course this year gives local racing honorees a place of their own: The Saratoga Walk of Fame. The new structure houses plaques for individuals who have been influential in the advancement of Saratoga Race Course, making significant contributions to the sport of thoroughbred racing.
"The Saratoga Walk of Fame is our way of acknowledging and recognizing these individuals for their dedication to the sport with a place to publicly enshrine their accomplishments," said New York Racing Association CEO and President Chris Kay. "We hope our guests will enjoy Saratoga's newest attraction which is designed to highlight the contributions of our industry's leading pioneers and achievers for decades to come."
The Saratoga Walk of Fame is a new covered structure, located near the carousel, that features an historic design in the classic Saratoga style, right down to the iconic turrets crowning the roof.
Even in its first year, the attraction will already have 6 plaques on display, with 2 more lined up to be added this season. This because, although the Saratoga Walk of Fame is new this year, it is the culmination of a tradition that actually began a couple years ago.
