Taste Summer in Town Square

Summer has arrived at Bay Meadows and so has al fresco dining on fresh menu items from your Town Square favorites. Gather with friends in the open-air at Fieldwork Brewing’s San Mateo Beer Garden and bring your four-legged pal along. Dine on Slices sun-filled patio and enjoy live music. Order the Spiced NOLA from Blue Bottle and stroll through the gardens. Maybe it’s a milkshake from Tin Pot Creamery and a game of table tennis that you’ve been craving. Pick up some picnic items from ROAM Artisan Burgers where you’ll find chilled Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho, the Summertime Burger and specialty seasonal salads made with the freshest organic, locally sourced ingredients.

Start planning your picnics! San Mateo’s 300+ days of sunshine are best enjoyed outdoors – in Bay Meadows’ network of parks, trails, community garden, and 15-acres of open space. Take advantage of several outdoor spaces along Delaware Street offering bocce, fitness, ping pong and more, or enjoy proximal access to Whole Foods Market, Hillsdale Shopping Center and San Mateo’s thriving downtown.

Take a peek at what’s on the menu this summer at Bay Meadows:
