Street food at the track 

  The Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots (1751 Gentilly Blvd., 504-944-5515; www.fairgroundsracecourse.com) is home to a long tradition of horse-racing, but that doesn't mean the track doesn't embrace popular trends, including exotic animal racing, food trucks and street food vendors.

  This Saturday, in addition to its normal program of thoroughbred horse racing, the Fair Grounds hosts zebra and ostrich races. A tented outdoor area called the Miller Time Beer Garden features local food purveyors including Woody's Fish Tacos, BBQ n' Some, La Cocinita and The Fry Bar as well as a bar and DJs.

  Exotic animal races drew large crowds at an event last summer, and food trucks also have been an increasingly common amenity at special events at the track. On Saturday, racing begins at 2 p.m. and the exotic animal races begin at 6 p.m. General admission is $10 (free for children 12 and under), and beer garden admission is an additional $15.
