Join your General Practice colleagues for a weekend in Saratoga!

Please register by 3pm on Tuesday, September 2, and include your Menu Selections for Friday's dinner.

Friday we’ll meet for cocktails and dinner at one of the Capital District’s best and most charming restaurants, The Brook Tavern. After breakfast Saturday at the hotel and a useful CLE program, you may visit the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame or the National Museum of Dance. In the afternoon, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center hosts its annual Wine & Food Festival where for a single fee you and your wine glass (comes with admission) will sample wines from as many as 70 wineries from around the nation and the world, together with samples of dishes prepared by the chefs of the area’s finest restaurants. Simultaneously, the Saratoga Automobile Museum presents its annual Concours d’Elegance featuring beautiful and rare Ferraris, Aston-Martins, Porsches, Jaguars, Cobras, Maseratis, Packards, perhaps even a really rare Bugatti or Pierce Arrow. Admission to the event admits you to the adjacent Saratoga Automobile Museum that features its new exhibition, the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang. Sunday, stay an extra day on your own, or connect with G.P. friends old and new to experience more area attractions in the “Racing City.”

Accommodations by the Saratoga Courtyard Marriott, 11 Excelsior Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. (Reservations must be made by phone by August 11th in order to secure the room block rate.)
